About Me


Have a great time traveling in Europe!!!


Hello, my name is Poeta and I am from Taipei, Taiwan.

Although I was born in New York City, I essentially grew up in Taipei, Taiwan (3 to 16-yrs old) and later on spent 12 years studying and working in California (both So. Cal & Nor. Cal), USA.

That said, I have spent the past two years in Asia, caring for my mom who went under a major surgery in 2011 and working in Hong Kong and Shanghai from 2012 to 2013 until July.

I am currently studying in the United Kingdom for my masters and would love to take this opportunity to travel to all the European / African destinations that I have dreamed of visiting ever since I was a little girl. Hope to meet people who are friendly and interested in having cultural conversations.


Enjoy life while you can

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I still prefer staying in hotels or hostels but would love to meet up with locals or other travelers for coffee, lunches, dinners, and other day-trip / tours / events!


I have never couchsurfed or hosted anyone before! That said, I have met a few of couchsurfers and just join them for local tours in Hong Kong and Shanghai.


Reading, watching movies / musicals / plays / ballets / operas, listening to music, dancing, playing boardgames / poker (Texas Hold'em), online shopping, trip-planning, and of course just hanging out with friends and family :D
