About Me

My name is Sonia. After traveling around Asia and teaching English in China for 2 years, I have settled down back home with a 9-5 job. I left a part of my heart in China though and yearn for the day I can go back.

Please do not request to stay with me if you snore, I am unfortunately very sensitive to this. Somehow I can tune out my cat who frequently meows in the night, so if you are also a light sleeper, please consider this. To ensure that you have read my profile, please let me know in your request that you don't snore and that you don't mind my cat.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I loved Couchsurfing for so many reasons! I'm always impressed by the generosity of strangers. I appreciate the local culture, advice, etc. Or just simply meeting someone new :)
