About Me


try to figure out who i am and what i want


Hello, everyone:) Now I am in New Zealand doing my working holiday journey.

I'm full of passion and very independent, easy-going and very active. I do believe travelling is a very important part of life. I want to know more about different cultures in the world. Couchsurfing for me is not about free accomadation, but a travel style (or life style) to learn different cultures through meeting different people, it's about mutual trust and cultural interaction.



Why I’m on Couchsurfing


During my journey in Beijing, in a YHA, I read a book telling a girl travelling in Europe by couchsurfing, that's the first time I knew cs, then I found out this website and joined CS family.


Feb 2014, couchsurfed in Taiwan for 12 nights.

Feb 2015, couchsurfed in Thailand, 3 cities, 3 hosts.

Oct 2016, couchsurfed in Christchurch.

Feb 2017, couchsurfed in Christchurch, Timaru, Dunedin.

I also host a few surfers in Guangzhou, China.


I love guitar, rollerblade, travelling alone, reading, volunteering, talking with strangers, playing with babies! I like sports, but not an expert...
And crazy dog lover!
