About Me


the idea nomads - traveling the world 2009-2010 with creative activites on the way


Working together at design office in Shanghai. Trying to escape the urban jungle as often as possible. Leaving Shanghai in April 2009 for a looong trip - see our webpage! www.onizou.com

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We make an effort to show CS guests the best of 'our' city Shanghai, and tell them about the best of China.


We enjoy meeting new people and share travel and life stories. While having been 'stuck' in Shanghai, we've still felt like being on the move as we've meet so many people from different places. And we've got lots of inspiration on where to go for our own big world tour...
