About Me


To learn


Searching for happiness and exploring the world developing the depth of her life, no much differences than anyone else deep inside..
I used to do a lot of travel/road trip/mountain trekking at my home country China, have done some rock climbing as well, and enjoyed them all. But never felt enough.

About some years ago I get addicted to sailing, so spent all my weekends for sailing, and have raced in a few sailing regattas in China, won a couple champions in China in 2011.
I decided to come to NZ at the end of 2011, primary for sailing since this is the best place for sailing in the world. I quit my job as a VGM at an american company two months before I came to NZ .
I had a wonderful amazing time in New Zealand for almost two years, that experience had make this country my second homeland.
Then I travelled for a few months in Asia. And then I went back to China, and still miss being aboard!
and I plan to go back to New Zealand in March 2015.


Life is always hard, why not laugh out loud.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hang out, I walk around, I see things happening with or without me.

I seriously started looking at this website after attending a couple CS wednesday night's drinks at Welly, New Zealand.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A sailing trip from Qingdao all the way down to Xiamen China, groups of dolphin go along with you, you are in nowhere but just the sky and ocean.

Teach, Learn, Share

I learn.
I'd love to teach you whatever I know, but I always feel like people know so much more than I do!
I love sharing- sharing is caring as people say!
