About Me


travel the world and seven seas! (Sweet dreams are made of this)


Hi all, I am Matthew and I am currently working in Hong Kong. Before that I have spent more than a decade in England and studying and working. I love to hearing your unique and extraordinary travelling story and different cultures, which would enlighten me. So looking forward to meet some new friends here and especially from you


Work hard, play harder.

There is a Chinese saying (讀萬卷書不如行萬里路)"It would be better to travel ten thousands miles than reading ten thousand book", which roughly translate into travelling is much better than reading. Go and experience life yourself, feel it rather than just reading or hearing from other. Through experience you would become a better and more complete person.

Although you can't change the world, but you can always change your attitude to life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have participate in a few local tours and activities. Looking forward to join more or even host one in the near future.


I spent two weeks in Germany in 2014 and stay with different number of host in different cities there. They are amazing peoples. Although my couch is not available , feel free to contact me as I am more than happy to show you around Hong Kong.


Hiking, dining, films, photography, sports, music, board games. You name it, I would try it. Yeah I am open to all other possibility. Life is too short, just have to enjoy and try new things.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music - not as enthusiast as in the past, but enjoy quiet moment before bed with the radio nowadays.
Books - I like to read inspiration book to spice up my life.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went to Tibet in 2015 and managed to experience the weather condition of 4 seasons within a day (which includes Sunny, Rain, Snow and Windy). The sky was absolutely beautiful there, and I just toke countless number of photos during that time.

I have also very fortunate to participated in number of high profile sports events such as rugby world cup. I was also there for Madonna first stop in world tour back in 2008. The atmosphere is simply awesome!
