About Me

Hi everyone, this is Samuel! I am a bit slow to warm up with new friends, but I know I would become kind and tender after we open our doors to each other. XD

After I have graduated from university with my bachelor's degree of Chinese language and literature, I try to be a good editor in different area. I edited news and pop culture books, I really treasure my work as I think I really can make change to this society with my little pen, although the influences may be small.

However, editors are always editing experiences of others, I want to create my own experiences also, the best way to let myself explore this world more, is to travel myself, that's why I often quit my job after I earn enough money to go for a long trip.

Work hard and travel, come back to work and travel again, so far my life is going great.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I was used to stay in hostels because I can meet more friends from different countries and cultures, but now I prefer knowing more about every places I visit, I think couchsurfing is better for me to know more about local culture from my hosts!

Interests

Reading, writing and travelling. Everytime I go travel I would bring several books and notebook with me, I think reading can help me think more deeply and open my senses to feel more about my trip. And I can write down what I think and feel on my notebook, and travelling always stimulate good ideas of new stories.
