About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoy my life,do some amazing& meaningful things when I'm young!

ABOUT ME
I'm a native of Hangzhou. I was born&grew up in the suburb located in the Zhijiang NationalResort,a famous leisure area among locals. I've never left my city except traveling.The WestLake Scenic Area & the Qiantang river (the 2 most famous attractions )are parts of my life.They are on my way to my workplace,so I will drive through everyday.
I'm friendly,easygoing and enjoy the happiness after I help others.When I was a student, I always be a guider for my classmates,and now for my friends.My friends are from all corner of the country. Thanks to CS, now my friends are from all corners of the world.
I would travel out if I was free.I also enjoy funs that DIY tour brought.
As I'm a science &Chinese teacher, my love of the nature cannot be described .I'm a environmentalists.I teach my students to protect the environment,animals n everything in the nature.

PHILOSOPHY

And I'm interested in Chinese traditional culture like Taoism.lol.it influences our culture a lot!so it's only tradition,not religion. I believe in people are basically good.:)Tomorrow is another day! I will forget unhappiness soon,cause Life is beautiful. I won't waste time of being angry. Keep smiling & enjoying life:)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Internet &newspaper&hosting,I think it's cool to get know other people around the world through CS.We have different life experience and different cultures.But we meet.Maybe we share same world n life values.Wow!so so .....nice!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My past travel experiences seemed like that driving somewhere,staying in star-hotels.that's too boring! thanks to Cs, I would travel as a native:)..
I've hosted lots CSers.I'm so glad to show visitors around.It's so amazing when I am telling the stories about Westlake n my city. I've known since childhood.
I've heard some bad story from my friends about CS.But luckily,I never met.All the PPL I met on CS are so nice! I really want to have more wonderful experiences @ CS.

Interests

Traveling,reading(most are Chinese edition),music(I like English song, but I have problem of remembering names), DIY( as string of beads,Quilt etc, if I had time, I'm glad to make 1 for u) , explore the unknown things,explore nice food in city.I'm a real "CHI HUO".

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Setting up a stall in night market when I was in the college.That was so interesting when the policemen get rid of the illegal salesmen. we ran&ran to hide ourselves well. ;)
Did volunteer work on an small island in Indonesia, I helped to build an Eco hostel till opening pArty.there wasn't water for days. So we could take shower in the sea (10meters in front of hotel) swam & saw turtles.

Teach, Learn, Share

teach:I can teach u something about China. Chinese,calligraphy,Chinese traditional handmade,Chinese flute……
learn: everything new to me
Share:stories,cooking(I love noodles although I live in south China :p)

What I Can Share with Hosts

Everything u can use.just make urself at home.free wifi,free pick up,free tour guider+private driver(if I was free)...anything u could imagine.
my mom is always thinking I'm not warm-hearted enough when guest were @ my house! She's always asking me:why not...why not? It's not true.T.T That's traditional Chinese!ENJOYING CHINESE CULTURE!
But if u just wanna get everything free,don't send me request. I think the meaning of CS IS NOT ONLY FOR FREE! I would rather host someone who's interested in Chinese culture.Don't always say' AA '. Sorry AA is not our culture. It feels sooo bad when u calculate so clearly between friends.
