À propos de moi


I don't want to have a dream job, I want to have a dream life


I've been living in Beijing for four years. I originally came as an English teacher, but now I have a day job doing real estate valuation and a night job in a cultural center and a travel company developing culinary programs, teaching cooking classes, and organizing trips.

I eat vegetarian as much as possible (seriously not easy in a lot of countries) so I'm happy to give and get advice on traveling vegetarian or vegan.


It's not good, it's not bad, it's just different

This goes for countries, food, cultures, religions, clothes, lifestyles, everything. No one country or culture is inherently "better" or "worse." Each has its strong and weak points with different things to teach us.

Pourquoi je suis sur Couchsurfing


I host when I can, and if I can't I can probably still show you around. My area is food and cuisine, so if you want a market tour or cooking lesson I'm your gal!


I've been hosting, and I haven't gotten out much to be hosted lately, but I always enjoy meeting fellow CSers when I travel.

Morceaux de musique, films et livres

My favorite author is Haruki Murakami, my favorite actor is Will Ferrell and my favorite kinds of music are jazz, classical, and super upbeat pop music that I am way too old for but still love anyway.

Une aventure extraordinaire que j'ai vécue

ONE amazing thing?! I have to choose just ONE!??!?! OK, the Angkor Wat half marathon

Enseignez, apprenez, partagez

As a cooking instructor, I can teach you all kinds of Chinese and western dishes. When it gets colder, I can teach you how to knit a hat for the Beijing winter. Plus,I used to be a language teacher if you're looking to brush up on some English grammar or Chinese characters while you're visiting ;)

Ce que j'aimerais partager avec mes hôtes

Anything I can! I'm more interested in learning than sharing when I'm with a host, especially in a new country. If you want me to bring something from far away, or teach you something while I'm there, anything I can do to make the most of our brief time together.
