About Me

I have a very curious heart, what I haven't seen, experienced or tried are always attracting to me, that's why I love travelling, because I can always try new stuff .

My dream is to be a drifter, travelling around the world and get to know different kinds of people from different culture, Now I just finished my delayed Gap year for 2 years and came back to work in Guangzhou.

From 2016-2018 I have already finished my trip around China, and visited Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia, Vietnam, India and Nepal. In 2017 I was on Working holidays in Australia, employed in beautiful Cairns city as an underwater photographer.

Now I’m working in the marketing department of a Real estate company. sometimes I like the fulfilment this job gives me, but sometimes I get really exhausted, because you know the Real estate market goes crazy in China and the price is soaring far more than you can even imagine.

I'm a very helpful guy and I used to do a lot of volunteering works, both in India and Thailand, I'm happy to share the experience.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love this idea of exchanging couches, through which you can both get accommodations and make new friends.
I think getting to know the local lives, spending time with local residents are far more important than just sightseeing.
In the past, due to the reason that I can't come out to travel around, CS brought a part of the world to me through hosting and surfing. Now, I'm on my way of getting into the world. Thanks CS community!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

when l was travelling in Mt Wuyi in Fujian Province, I happened to choose an abandoned path, that day I got lost in the mountain, but also saw great great scenery! I even found a very beautiful big wild bird which you could only find in the zoo or books. that was quite amazing. Fortunately, I found my way, and return to hotel. but thinking of that , I'm still a little scared, cause I could be attacked by wild animals or else. Anyhow, this experience is quite incredible and memorable!
