About Me


Wishing everyone a happy journey!


I have spent the last four years living in Shanghai, Tokyo, Saigon and Mumbai. I just moved to Taipei with my sister and we are now starting some traveling!


The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, or a hell of heaven.Milton, Paradise Lost

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I enjoy both hosting and surfing. I move around a lot so I also use CS as a platform to make new friends when I'm in a new place. I have been couchsurfing for many years but my sister just began so I am excited to show her how awesome it is!


I am interested in people and their stories and learning how to write these stories.
