ABOUT ME

I'm an openminded person, loving to travel, enjoying the process of on the way, as well as the time staying at a place, along or with friends.Life is beautiful, so why not step out of the cozy home and hug the world, or, let the world hug you:)

PHILOSOPHY

生命不止,丢人不息。Life is short, enjoy it:)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

2013-CS has made my past year's travel experiences more diverse and interesting, all the way from Europe to Africa. I enjoyed meeting new friends and getting to know local people's life through CS. Sometimes, I also enjoy the flexibility of staying at hostels and being by myself. So I'm kind of combining CS and staying at hostels and attending CS events so that I'm keeping the flexibility of my journey and enjoying/sharing the happiness meeting new friends on the way through CS.

2012-I'm a new comer to CS:) but have enjoyed the CS experience so far! Currently mainly travelling around Europe on weekends or breaks during my master study. Some day when I have my own apartment back in China, would love to host people from all over the world:)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have enjoyed my CS experiences so far. I'm really grateful for those lovely CSers who have hosted me on my way and shared their stories and passion for life with me. I hope I can spread the love, passion and inspirations to the rest of the world that I'm visiting or stopping by.

It's a pity I haven't been able to host as much as I would love to due to my always-on-the-way status. But as long as I'm settled down, I would love to host as much as I can.

I would perceive CS as a system based on trust and faith. I mostly would trust people who would kindly provide their help or would turn to me for help. But to some extent, I would have more trust in CSers who have friends/references to base my trust on:)

Interests

Swimming, reading, watching movie, writing blog, Chinese painting, Calligraphy

Music, Movies & Books

Life of Pie, Django Unchained and Argo are the most recent movies that I have watched. Love all of them from different perspectives.

Openminded towards different kinds of music, pop or rock, R&B or jazz, Chinese or English, etc. I enjoy listening to local music when I visit a new place, cuz music is the form of art that also speaks out people's mindset and tells the story of a place:)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Kilimanjaro! I made it to the summit in 5 days on my very first visit to Africa:)
ICELAND!It took us 5 hours to wait until we saw the Northern Light.
JiuZhaiGou@Sichuan, China...the most beautiful water I've seen.
