About Me

Always up for a drink / walk.

CURRENT MISSION
Meet ppl from the planet. Travel and learn as much as I could.
Exchange, share, understand. Have fun!

ABOUT ME

Hey there, I am a NEUROSCIENCE researcher @Free University of Berlin.
Being reliable, and eager to explore the world through the perspective of locals, meet new people, eager to share our stories and have a blast.
Love sports and being on the road. I play almost all kind of ball games, especially volleyball.

PHILOSOPHY

Making a big life change is pretty scary. But, know what's even scarier? Regret.
Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I already had quite some host experiences. I also look forward to surfing at my would-be host's place when I backpack on the road. Would be always awesome if I could surf at my surfer's place one day to re-connect, or vice versa.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far so good, CS experience for me has been great, both as a host and surfer! Surfing in Belgium, Poland, Germany, Italy, USA and Hong Kong are unforgettable. Besides, I also participate in some CS events. Throughout, I have met some great people, and with some become friends.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Always ready to be exposed to cultural impact and try to understand them, which is actually not easy.
Wrestle with a guy while surfing in Venice.
My bagpack got sliced by policemen, and my passport got checked in Capitol Hill
Hitting a stone and get a flat tire while driving along a volcanic mountain in Canary islands.
Hitchhiking in Cyprus.
Better ask me for the rest:) XD

Teach, Learn, Share

Able to show you some neuroscience knowledge. Sounds cool,aha?
Open-minded to everything new. I would like to get to know you better, and learn something from your country and people.
Ready to listen to your stories, and exchange life perspectives.
Couchsurfing is about giving and taking, I personally prefer hosting surfers who already have hosting experiences.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Besides sharing traveling stories, I consider myself a good listener. Oh!!! I could share Cantonese cuisine(Dim Sum) and basic neurosciences knowledge.
