About Me

CURRENT MISSION
Explore life and food culture.

ABOUT ME
I enjoy traveling and cultural exchange a lot. There're many ways of travelling and I tried a few: airbnb, hostel, guesthouse, hotel, motel, CS etc. I will definitely opt for CS . Normally I'll spend same money on buying ingredients for cooking for the host and prepare some calligraphy stuff and some souvenirs from my hometown. Even I gotta spend same amount of money as the hostel or airbnb, I'll still love to do this. CS makes the relationship between surfers and hosts simpler and less pressure and no obligations. My money can be spent on facilitating our communications and cultural understanding which I think is better than pay and stay.
