About Me


To visit all my friends that I met during my trip from different countries around the world


I can't stop traveling. I think I need to move a lot in my whole life. Just want to see more, learn more and enjoy more. Life is so short, do whatever I want and go as many places as I can when I still have energy. I'm easygoing, pleasant, positive, active... Sometimes I'm crazy to book ticket and fly away without thinking too much. No plan is also a good adventure. Life is a journey~ I would like something different.


Life is like a trip.. need to explore and enjoy more. Everyone you meet in this trip is meaningful. Be nice to people and open your heart to meet new friends, to accept new things. Your would will be full of wonderful things.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


When I traveled... some friends asked me to join this project...


Actually I have couchsurfing some places during my trip but not via this website. I was lucky to stayed with some nice people in New York, Mexico and New Zealand. I met a Mexican girl with her mother when I joined a local tour in Yucatan, Mexico. They invited me to their traditional Xmas party and stayed at their home. It's a little town called Comitan. Whole family welcome me and they are so nice to me. Even I speak poor spanish, they can understand me. I remember I slept in grandmother's room and I felt so warm to have such experience. If you have a Mexican friend, you have a home. It's true.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Traveling and learning Spanish in Mexico. Climbing on the pyramids and snorkeling in Caribbean Sea is so wonderful. Many people helped me when I traveled alone. I got discount and even free food and lodge many times. I also help some people when they don't speak Spanish but have problem there. It's always nice to help each other and exchange travel experience.
