About Me

ABOUT ME

I joined Couchsurfing when I decided to move to Hong Kong for a while. I met many great people who let me crash with them or otherwise enriched my journeys in HK, Southern China and Vietnam. I can't host anyone right now, but I hope I can again in the future or find another way to give back to the CS community.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most amazing place I've seen may be the Old City of Jerusalem. I'm not religious at all, but it is crazy to see a place with so much different significance for different religions that has been through war and constant political turmoil continue to serve many of the spiritual and communal functions it did in ancient times.
