Today, my teacher made fun of my two class mates and me because we talked about how much we loved pink, girlish princessness and Hello Kitty stuff. He said that his own daughter, who’s only four, had already passed her pink Hello Kitty period. We all laughed but it made me think about this cultural difference in Chinese and Scandinavian societies.
When backpacking through Southeast Asia, I meet a lot of interesting people but I only meet a few who really make a great impact on my life after they’ve left and I am alone again. Today, I want to share one story about my meeting with a girl who changed my online destiny.
This post is dedicated to my absolute best couchsurfing experience. My host Yeoung made my Korea trip more than awesome. Thank you so much for taking me in and be my bestie for a week while discovering Seoul.
I’ve done couchsurfing for quite a few years now. I started in 2012 when somebody close to me excitingly told me about the advantages and benefits of this arrangement. At that time, I was ready to join the international society. I’d already been traveling abroad twice on my own and the thought of helping other travelers while I was staying in Denmark made me excited.
My trip from Thailand (Chiang Mai) was planned down to details and I was ready for it. Everything went fine until it wasn’t fine anymore.
It was evening in my hostel and I was looking for my camera. I was looking and looking and I was sure I’d put it in that bag. When it wasn’t there, I’d in frustration thrown all of my stuff on my bed but it just wasn’t there. I had to acknowledge the truth. Somebody had stolen it from my luggage during the last ten-hour bus ride.
