About Me

I want to get to know this life, this world and myself through reading, walking and meeting new people. I am always motivated but never fully convinced. I study law, but I am quite flexible :)

[Updated in Jan, 2015]:
Currently I'm taking a gap year after undergraduate school and would continue my study in the U.S. this August. Before starting law school this autumn, I am taking a three-month travel in Europe from April to June. Look forward to meeting new people and making new friends on the way.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Someday the idea of couchsurfing occurred to me, then I found this website.

I think courchsurfing is a unique way to learn a place and encourages communication between us from different cultural backgrounds.

My past experience tells me, encounters and conversations on the way leave the most impressive memories.

Up to now, I've benefited a lot from the CS experience and the CS community, and I will pay all the kindness and warm welcome I've recorded back when I settle down in a place.

Teach, Learn, Share

Learn, how other people live their lives and their perspectives.
Share, my life stories and my perspectives.

What I Can Share With Hosts

If you're interested in China or Asia, I can definitely share my insights and my traveling stories.

Although I am not a master in Chinese cooking, I can make some dishes.

If there is a China Town in the place you live, I can show you around and let's have a dinner in a Chinese restaurant (I will take the "burden" of understanding the menu and ordering the dishes : P)

Countries I've Visited
