About Me

a current Mandarin teacher, ex sino-french translator, traveler, nature-lover. My students and friends said I’m a cool girl, sincere, smart, thoughtful, professional, helpful, cute, mature and naive haha.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I’ve been Shanghai, Yangshuo, Kunming, Tengchong, Rizhao, Qinghai, Lanzhou, Dunhuang by hitchhiking during 2012-2015, surprised and frightened by some dangerous and funny experiences. I started to try CS because of safe issue and met my soulmate here during 2018 and we are still best friend. I’m open to do more spiritual interaction with people and to know better the world by making friends.
