Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Hiking is my main joy in Hong Kong, I enjoy taking people hiking :) If not hiking, I like to give visitors a great experience of the country, I can take you on simple tours to places with little expense, show you the city from interesting point of views, take you places to shop for your needs or just give simple advice.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Many of my best travel memories is from surfing and hosting. I enjoy attending local CS events & meetups.

Interests

Hiking, hardcore adventures, diving, freediving, snorkelling, collecting nik-naks & random natural inanimate objects, movies mostly sci-fi, my kinda music, foodie & food lover/experimentalist & learning to cook ;P, Love my whiskey & drinking, fitness, photography (with my Gopro!!) indulging, and chilling out.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Ambient, Electronica and Post-Rock Music, like the band Hammock or Mogwai. Otherwise pretty open as long as it's not rapping or Chinese Opera.

Movies: Mostly Sci-fi/Action. I spend much of my time commuting so I watch many different TV shows to pass the time while traveling. Some my favourite examples of shows includes: Breaking Bad, Hannibal, House of Cards, Game of Thrones....etc

& Books: Not much of a reader because I'm very Dyslexic.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Road trip of Japan, hosted by my Japanese local CS friend. **"Mochan WISH CLUB"** Look this man up on CS!!

Nepal ~ Annapurna Circuit. (I get ask this many times) **If you want a trusted local tour operator for Nepal, Annapurna, Himalayas, EVB etc. Message "Hem Mugrati" in my friends list**

Diving in general. Love Diving ;) (I still consider myself a beginner)

Otherwise always spoilt for seeking great adventures anywhere & everywhere ;)

Teach, Learn, Share

I learn and experiencing whatever I can. Always seeking local knowledge & inspiration from people I meet and places I go.

I will be happy to help anyone who wants to improve their English speaking skills (British English).

What I Can Share with Hosts

I don't see myself as that person to show my appreciation by only exchanging "travel stories" or giving random gifts which you can already get like dried mangos. I take interest to the person that host me. I enjoy to spend time with my host and give fair exchange in hospitality however I can.

Cambodia, China, Georgia, Japan, Laos, Nepal, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, United Kingdom, United States, Viet Nam

Countries I’ve Lived In

Hong Kong, United Kingdom
