About Me


proudly made in China, polished by New York City, accessorized by the World


A Dreamer, who tries to live in this real world but cant help having the free spirit sneak out of my forced soul.

Life is an experience led by courage and passion which cant be restrained by man-made rules and standards.

Though, living truly and free is my own rule.

Vacation on stranger's land is the door way to my pure happiness....


Life is only once...though having no regrets in life will be a lie...but I am trying to live my life w no regrets

Life is more like a contradiction to me, like nothing is absolutely right and wrong...it's all about where you stand and what you choose..

I am rather paradoxical myself....But I believe that's how the beauty of life lies

Life is not perfect but wonderful!

Being able to live is the greatest thing ever in life

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I believe it's not the Eiffel Tower that makes Paris Paris, not the the Colosseum that makes Rome Rome, not the Great Wall that makes Beijing Beijing.....It's the PEOPLE.

I have been staying in places long enough to know what locals' favorite dry-clean store is without visiting those so called "places of interest". To me, it's the PEOPLE who interest me and make up my memories of the place


I had great couchsurfing experience in Argentina and has made amazing friends from couchsurfing. Unbelievably amazing!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Drove to Tibet and camped out for 26 days before the existence of rail road in Tibet;
Got lost in Tierra del Fuego in Argentina by myself in a cold rainy evening and almost couldnt make it out;
Being stunned by Ushuaia; Bag packed on my own since my teen years; Broke my elbow when snowboarding, wrapped up like spring roll and being pulled down the hill by the patrol while watching the stars in winter sky;.....and more coming up

Teach, Learn, Share

Would love to exchange cultures and host in my city
