About Me

I love walking slowly in the gardens and parks, reading books in the long arm chair with tea, and having candle light in the evening.
Sound so romantic, right? that's my dream life ^^
For the past few years, I had been living a quite busy life, so now, I live at very slow pace...
And I love traveling to new places and see how the locals live.
For me, it is really exciting to get to know a new culture and enjoy local foods.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because I want to meet the locals and get to know their homeland from their stories. It's the people and their life, which make my journeys become more unique and special.

Interests

Reading novels, about children and their growing-up stories.

Exercise, yoga and interacting sports such as tennis (eventhough I studied tennis for 4 months, and I hardly hold the racket and serve the ball in a right way, I still want to try more ==')

Traveling slowly without a defined plan. I prefer walking slowly around the streets, eating local street foods and watching the locals.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Gathering a group of ten children in my hometown, learning English and playing badminton with them.
When I was in Vietnam, I was always scared of exams and homework. Some of my friends studying abroad now still have nightmare of pop-up exams in literature class. Thus, I just want to make studying more interesting and relaxing for those kids.

Eventhough, I am living abroad now, those children still keep contact, study English and have fun together.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share about Vietnamese culture, food and our normal life. If you want to come to Vietnam, I can recommend my favorite places and traditional food (not on tourist website). Vietnam has dozens of food better than Pho (Vietnamese noodle) ^^
