About Me

I’m a singer/songwriter and restaurant influencer. I was born and raised in China(Chinese passport holder), but I studied in Los Angeles for 6 years, I have dual degree and I traveled more than 140 countries by myself. I don’t drink and I don’t smoke, either, also not interested in night club.

I’m a meat lover but I don’t like kebab, only pure meat. I don’t eat any sour food such as: Tomatoes , pickles, vinegar, lemon. I can’t suffer any sour sauce like: Ketchup, blue cheese, some of the sour white sauce. But sour drink I don’t mind. 😂I hate Turkish coffee and espresso, but I love juice and coffee latte.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

PLEASE READ 🌹

To all the hosts:

I would like to make everything clear so we can reduce unnecessary misunderstandings.

First of all, thanks for everyone who offered to host me, right now I’m on a graduation trip. It’s been 2 years since I started this trip (Started from June14th, 2022, none stop). As a female solo traveler I prefer private room, it will be my first consideration, but if you don’t have it’s ok, just let me know. 😚

I understand some hosts don’t like their guests to stay at home alone, but I might not be able to get up really early to match your working schedule. So if you need me to stay outside when you go to work and let me in when you go back home, please let me know the exactly time when you offer to host me. I had a host kicked me out at 7am and ask me to go back after 10pm, I don’t want to suffer this again.

If you willing to host multiple surfers at the same time, please make sure you have enough space to host me before you send me hosting offer. One of my host offered to host me and the other 2 girls at the same time, I never been noticed that there’s only one sofa left for me which was not even long enough to sleep.

I’ve been 51 African countries, and I know in some places, using bucket water is common and usual. But for me, I take quick shower every morning, and I figured it’s hard for me to use bucket water. So if your place doesn’t have running water for shower, please don’t offer to host me. It’s just my personal habit, please don’t get offended.

To all the surfers who ask me to hang out:

If you offer to pick me up, show me around, or invite me for a meal, I’ll consider it as a free offer, PLEASE don’t ask me to pay you money back afterward. If you want me to share the gas money, pay you as a tour guide, please let me know in advance.

How did I start Couch Surfing?

I traveled a lot before Covid. I used to book hotels and Airbnb only (Booking Genius level 3, Airbnb has 71 reviews shows up in my photos), I don’t stay in hostel, because I can’t sleep in the same room with too many people. I registered Couch surfing in 2019 but never used it, 😂because I thought “Couch” surfing means I can only sleep on the couch.

I started to use it since July 2022. After I booked the last minute flight ticket from Iceland to Greenland, I noticed that all the hotels and Airbnbs were fully booked until the following year, so I downloaded CS back. I didn’t find any host in Greenland but received host offers from Iceland and I started using it.

After traveled alone for several years, I feel lazy to research and plan everything, and I’m appreciated when local people show me around, tell me the situation about their countries, also without taking me anywhere but gave me some local tips or suggestions.
