About Me

I'd like to think that I am an open-minded, adventurous and most-of-the-time reckless traveller who is always lucky enough to receive help from fellow CSers.

I try to go out and see what the world has to offer as much as possible - life would be too boring to stay at just one place. I enjoy meeting with people and exchanging travelling stories - I'm often amazed by how these funny reckless travel stories bring people together despite the difference in our culture - maybe it's exactly the cultural difference that draw us together. ok here please excuse my overuse of dashes! I'm a talkative person full of ideas, or at least i'd like to think of it this way.

I am now pursuing my study so I don't get much chance to travel around. but I want to use this platform as a way for me to interact with the world through conversations about cultures, beliefs, stories and more.

I am respectful, and I try my best in being considerate and amiable .

*I can only host female guests as I live with other people in the flat

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I surf to meet the people, experience the culture, and be a part of the place that I visit.

I started couchsurfing when I was first volunteering in Poland two years ago and continued to host people after returning to Vancouver. Hosting people really makes me appreciate the city that I live in. Now that I have moved back to Hong Kong, the city where I grew up, I would like to share with people the experience of what my hometown has to offer. From busy modern streets to mountains, beaches, fishing harbours to old towns - I enjoy going to places over and over for that I still get amazed by the city's beauty after almost 20 years of living here. My hope is that anyone whom I show the city to will leave this place sharing my appreciation for the city's beauty and its culture.

*I don’t live in HK at the moment but we can also walk around in the beautiful town of Oxford and discover what this town has to offer :)

Interests

I'm into outdoor activities. I'm not good at one particular thing or especially interested in any - I'm always open to trying new activities. Kiteboarding, surfing, kayaking, hiking, biking, paragliding ... you name it!

I also love arts. I play the piano, guitar (a little) and yangqin (a Chinese instrument); I love singing ( though not exactly a good singer); I like drawing, dancing and basically everything related to creativity.
