About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Explore the world by myself.

ABOUT ME

Actually before I went abroad, I was very shy to talk to new friends. Now I enjoy travelling around and meeting new friends. After travelled in Europe, I found out that I really enjoy in hearing somebody's sharing experiences of travelling and I learned one important thing. I love to make friends during travelling, cuz I think it is better to travel with friends, and I won't feel alone. I can share many feeling about the trip with my friends. I love the moment I share with friends =)

PHILOSOPHY

Life is a journey of travelling alone.

When you truly want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Czech Repulic is my second country that I've ever visited. Before I went abroad, I think I know enough of this world. But actually I went out, I realized that I wanna explore more about this amazing world.

I went to Jungfraujoch in Swizterland, the top of Europe to see whole mountains covered by snow. It was really amazing for me. I won't forget this experience in my life.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would like to hear people share their experiences. Whatever it is, I would love to listen. Because I think sometimes you can grown up from other people's sharing and learn some lessons from it. Although the story or experience itself might not be so good; you can adjust it into a good way or change a little bit to make your own story. I always believe in this way.
