About Me


To earn money to travel


I was intereseted in travel and became a leader in a travel association in university.With great passion do the association work about travel. I spent much time going hiking in many places.On the road,I have experienced variety of life and felt more and more happier.

Before I graduated,I gave myself three months to travel to India.There are many poor person in the street without houses and money,but they are still smile and optimistic to life.This trip changed my life and values,then I gave up working after graduation and decided to working holiday in Newzealand.

I realized life is too short to do what I have to do,it's barely long enough to do what I want to do.So I
choose to go more places and experience the real world.


I have always focused on the external circumstance in the past,so if there is something disorder ,I felt anxiety and uncertain.

Two years ago,it's a mess in my life .I realized maybe I should make some changes .I began to be a vegetian and pursue the inner peace.As a excerpt says:"There is nobody in the outside world except yourself."When we encounter hardships,the most important things is our thoughts and attitude ,then follow our heart to active.

I want to change myself to a constant happy.I will keep
learning to love ,to gratitude, to share ,to smile.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have read some reports about couchsurfing on the website and newspapers.I decided to sign in on couchsurfing org. so that I could hang out with more friends.


On the road,I have slept different strange beds.And I have always encountered some kind-hearted person to do me a favor.


Travel.It teaches me more things than in the books.I can realize something though diffirent experience and travelers.

Swimming.When I grew up,I like this sport more and more.I like to affect the connection between my body and heart in the water.

Reading.Books can guide you to another beautiful world.And it brings some new ideas and value to change our life.

Music.I can feel relax when I listen to the music.It's the best mate on the road and not let you alone.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have slept in a desert mountain in DunHuang,then the sandstorm was coming.1 hours later in the midnight, 2 policemen guided us to leave.

My friends and I kept walking for 6 hours without rest in stormy weather , a high-mountain lake which located in the north of XinJiang.

Sitted on the roof of bus through a desert in India.

Walked 50 miles in 10 hours for a public service activities.

Teach, Learn, Share

Everyone is a book that teach us knowledge about life.
