The world is a book, and those who do not travel, read only a page. (Saint Augustine)

"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you did not do than by the things you did do. So, throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
-Mark Twain-

Allow yourself to dream big and then set out to turn your dream into reality.
Live now as you dont know what will happen tomorrow!
-from one of excellent CS

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love stories, both sharing and listening to. Everyone has different lives and backgrounds which make them become unique. After my first backpacking in Thailand, I heard of CS on a famous backpackers' website. I read their rich stories and found out that there exits a interesting and amazing way to know,exchange,and get along with people all around the world. I was helped a lot(no matter during the trips or daily life, so I hope, as I have the ability and time, I am willing to help and share with others.


What I learned most from CS is TRUST.
How could people overnight with someone they even haven't meet before? And how could people let some strangers to stay in their house? All of that is about trust. We trust cause we still believe everyone is kind-hearted.

Moreover,we share.
the food, stories, lives, memories, and everything. CSers are always generous!
