About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Get out and see more of the world, and meet interesting people along the way.

ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm Yoyo! :)

I just got back from visiting China, Japan and South Korea! Now I am back home in Seattle. I miss traveling! Sometimes I like to just feel like a tourist. So if anyone visiting Seattle wants to go sightseeing, I can go with you. :D

I'm a very open minded, laid back, reasonable and independent person.
I like to daydream and think a lot so I come up with ideas that other people think are strange.

I've been told that I'm very nice and funny, but also weird and crazy.
I think the world is crazy! And sometimes very funny too.

I try to not take things too seriously, but some things just drive me crazy!! So I try to turn it into a joke. Some people don't understand that, but it's my way of laughing at life and staying positive. :)

PHILOSOPHY

Keep your mind open and experience all that you can!

And don't settle for any situation that makes you unhappy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I really wish I could host someone at my house in Seattle!
I think it would be awesome to meet travelers!
But right now I am living in a place that is not very safe or convenient for sight seeing.

So I will have to wait until I move to a better place for you. :(

But I am open to meeting with anyone and hanging out in Seattle!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I recently couchsurfed around Asia and I met some very awesome and generous people through this site! I attended couchsurfing events as well and made some friends.

Interests

I'm interested in many things!

I love coffee and tea, seafood, beef, animals (hahaha! I'm sorry, even if I love animals I can't become a vegetarian!), foreign films, non-fiction books, experimental music, fashion, making crafts, art, design.

Right now I am beginning photography, I want to take a lot of pictures!

I like to learn about different cultures, languages, spiritual practices, etc, I like anything obscure and eclectic.

I like spontaneous plans and taking things as they come.

I'm happy just walking around and taking in the sights.
I also like shopping and thrift store shopping, hiking, and going to local events.
And I enjoy riding public transportation and getting a feel for everyday life in that area.

I can go out and experience nightlife, eating and drinking and going to clubs a couple days of the week and it will be a lot of fun for me.
But if it's more than that I get tired!

I am not a person who needs a lot of adrenaline, I'm more of a laid back type. So I prefer hiking over bungee jumping.

I'm not afraid of dirt or bugs or things like that. I'm not a princess, hahaha.

Teach, Learn, Share

I speak native level American English and moderate level Spanish. I can help you with those languages if you like! :)

I have a lot of knowledge about weird, random things that I can share with you whether you want to know or not! hahaha.

I've recently taken up Tarot card reading, I can read your future!

I would like to learn how to cook authentic dishes!

I would like some help with pronouncing chinese words, it's very difficult for me! ;_;
