About Me

Hmm about me...
My horoscope 'Aquarius' tells my character very well, basically I'm easygoing and love to be freedom but sometimes become too emotional and stubborn:-P
And always very curious about learning different culture, meeting new people, exploring all over the world!!
Love to travel abroad, my traveling style is visiting places where my friends are.
It's always good to have locals to hang out with so I enjoy joining CS meetup in abroad or in Osaka too;-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because it's awesome!:-)

Interests

I'm not an artist though I like modern art so I like to visit museum when I travel abroad or in Japan too:-)
My favorite art event is Setouchi art festival, which is held every three year.
And I like to learn Chinese and the culture too.
I've lived in China for 1 year and in Taiwan also 1 year, as you know we use same Kanji (character) though the grammar is totally different and the pronunciation is very hard for Japanese people:-0
But I'm getting better little by little (self-prize,lol) hopefully I can teach Chinese in the future!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Backpack traveling in Europe for 3 month;-)
My budget was very low so I tried to save money as much as I can,haha
Mostly visited friends and stayed at their place, sometime use couchsurfing, hostel.
I didn't take trains at all, took a bus instead. The most amazing bus trip was from Paris to London.
I went through Euro tunnel on the bus! I felt like I was in the movie:-P
Also the bus driver was very funny, he tried to make passengers laugh all the time in English with strong French accent!

Teach, Learn, Share
