About Me

CURRENT MISSION

taking advantage of every minute to learn and explore

ABOUT ME

Once i read a book. It says you will never know when you will die. So do your best every day. Only in this way you will never feel regretted even if you cant wake up in the following day. I think im trying this and hoping my friends to make the best use of every day.

I like outdoor activities and hanging out with different kinds of people. I can get engaged in a new culture quite easily.

Im very aware and conscious of what im doing and im straightforward to tell you what i think.

PHILOSOPHY

There is no fail in your life if you are willing to try

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I was told about CS by a friend who had fabulous experience when he was hosted in NYC. So im here. Its really bad that i cant hold anyone in france because my room is so small. But i can do it when i come back to Beijing.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I started my CouchSurfing experiences during the xmas vacations in 2010 when I was in Paris. Most of the people I met were great and really nice. I also met some people who held very different point of view for CouchSurfing and for life but we respected each other.

Interests

I love reading a nice book with a cup of hot tea during the weekends or in the park when the weather is good. It feels so good to be lazy when you want to.

I also love exchanging ideas with people from different cultural background. Like im in France rignt now, i always discuss with Europeans about different subjects. sometimes i get really shocked but its good to know the difference!

Learning a new language is such a self-fulfillment for me. But since the chinese is quite different from the language that origins from Latin, i have to get through TONS of difficulty.

New passion of my life: fencing!

Music, Movies & Books

I like indie music. Recently i began to listen to classical music which helps me calm down.

I love all kinds of love movies: romantic, family and friendship.

Influenced by some friends, i began to read books in philosophy. It helps me get wiser in life!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

When i travelled in Jiu Zhai Gou, a fairy-tale village in the southwest part of China, i took a french girl with me to spend one night in the local Tibetan family. In fact, its forbidden to spend the night inside, but we tried anyway. We didnt harm the environment at all and gained some experience that is hard to imagine by other people

Teach, Learn, Share

i can teach some traditional chinese food and at the same time, i hope u can teach me your local food
