explore the world of possibilities
I am always curious about the world, I want to understand the world inside out. And traveling happens to be one great way to do it!
But that wasn't always the case. I didn't quite get the backpacking idea until around 2010. But since then, I've been getting addictive to this habit.
I love new ideas and fresh thinkings on our world and our life. That's why I am a big fan of TED. I have learn to embrace the diversity in this world, it makes me appreciate more the richness of life and of being alive.
If you are a Chinese, you can also find me on sina weibo at @TonyYet.
Be the trouble maker you want to see in the world.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
i've hosted a couple people in Guangzhou and Hong Kong. when i was travelling in cities like Kunming, Zhuhai, Shenzhen, Hongkong, Shanghai, Austin and Vancouver, i couchsurfed with local hosts and try to get as much a local experience as possible.
my first CS was in 2010 when I was visiting Kunming, my host there was very hospitable and that leaves me with much trust on the CS network. have since recommended this platform to numerous friends.
reading, cross disciplinary ideas, TED, TEDx, open source, online collaboration
Music, Movies, and Books
Movie: 3 Idiots
Music: anything Bach
Books: Walden, books by Steven Pinker, David Deutsch, and Bruce Sterling

joined a meditation retreat led by Thich Nhat Hanh in Hong Kong in 2013 which was attended by over 1200 people. it was life-changing.
