About Me


Stay calm and carry on.


I am curious about the unknown especially different cultures. So I like adventures and experiencing. Through going to different places and learning how people live there is a lot of fun and worth doing. That's what I feel life is about. At the end you will know where you like most and where you want to settle down. Maybe at that time I am already an old lady.


Travelling is an attitude that you will get some feeling(s) that you will never get in your normal life. The places you have been, the scenery you have seen, the people you have met and known on the road all make you more mature than you used to be.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like couchsurfing and the way it works. Through here we can make a lot of friends and learn what we cannot learn from other places. You will always meet interesting people here and find lovely things about the place you live or visit.


Well I have hosted for once which was really a quite good beginning. And I have been host once which was again, a super nice experience. But couchsurfing is not only about hosting and surfing, it's also about meeting people , discovering something new together and you both enjoying it.


I like travelling around and seeing the world. When I am on the journey, I feel physically tired but my mind is enjoying and relaxing. I remember once in Marseille I was very sick but I still went around and climbed a high mountain there to see the other side of it. It was worth it when you thought back after all.
I like cooking because it's a way to enjoy life. But now I rarely cook because of some reason. I like swimming which helps me to relax and think. If it's a rainy day, nothing is better than lying on the couch in a cosy position and enjoying a good film.

Music, Movies, and Books

My favourite singer is Jay Chou who is from Taiwan and seems having the gift of composition and making films as well. But I listen to a variety of pop and rock music as long as they are beautiful. I like Hollywood movies because they have extraordinary dircetiors, charming actors, excellent plots and many other things. Reading novels or philosophy helps me thinking and know more about human nature.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I flew to Barcelona first and then went to cities in France and Italy by Eurolines and every single bus journey was like 9 hours or so and one of them was overnight and it kind of saved money haha coz I didn't pay for the night staying. It was summer so I got sick because it was too hot. When I was in Cremona, a town near Milan I had ice creams and I magically recovered from the illness. Or maybe it was because I was too happy to see my friend there so I survived. I think this might be the true reason. :)

Teach, Learn, Share

The time when I was in Lake District, it was so beautiful there and every photo you took looked amazing. I walked around the lake with my friend and we finally arrived at a cafe and took a boat back to Keswick town from there. The man running the cafe was so friendly and nice as well as other people. People you meet and get to know on the road are always nice.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can cook delicious Chinese food and also try new recipes if you would like. I am a good listener and also enjoy conversation about everything, anything.
