About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Writing my travelogue and publish

ABOUT ME

------Important Note------
-For food lovers, see my reference.:D-
--------------------------------

Travelled for 10 months with a half-full 35 lit backpack and just returned.. Am I really travelling? Or living aboard? Not easy to tell, though, is that important?

What I do in travelling?
- Cooking: Chinese food, if you think "sweet and sour chicken" is from china, think again.
- Sending postcard: for some countries, it is a mission impossible..
- Learning to cook local food.
- Chill out.

PHILOSOPHY

Softest tongue breaks bones.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have surfed once in Berlin, and I meet and guy when I traveled on a ship from Iceland to Denmark. We hitched from Denmark to Berlin, and he share a couch for me.

For me, couchsurfing is not about "free accommodation", it is a close encounter with locals. (Some of my friends enjoy to rush "photo spot" then rush away for another...submerging is all I want from travel)

Interests

-Listening and Chatting
-Music: Chinese, jazz blues...I LOVE to sing<3
-Sending and receiving postcards

One Amazing Thing I've Done

*****
A friendly handshaking, by two drivers (bus and a BIG truck) after crashing in Iran, and I was almost killed on the bus...

*****
Sleep in desert:
desert in Pakistan, under the protection of gunman.

*****
Hitchhiking: well, it is quite common in Europe.

*****
Meet the same girl 3 times in 3 different cities.

*****
Me and my wife walk in Florence (Basilica of Saint Mary of the Flower) in wedding dressing, everyone said: "Auguri!(Congrats)" and giving applause by several hundred strangers knowing that we are just married!
