    Travelling

  • Description

    Hi I’m Marsha! A super happy, easy-going, brave and open-minded human being. I am adventurous! Read on and you'll know :)

    I have been traveling alone around Australia, Asia, Middle East and Europe for almost 5 years already! I'm from Hong Kong and left home at 18 and started my journey around the world. I worked and traveled in Australia for 9 months, explored South East Asia for 7 months, volunteered in Nepal for 2 months. Then I spent 3 months hitchhiking from Iran to Turkey. I then spent 5 months in Greece, workawaying and volunteering for the refugees. After that, I hitchhiked from Greece to France! (I basically hitchhiked from Iran to France, alone, beginning at 19) I then worked in London for half a year. Then bigger adventures began: I cycled alone across one of the hardest "roads" in the world, across Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, over numerous 4000m high passes. Then I went to Afghanistan's Wakhan Corridor alone, where I hired a donkey and walked for 19 days straight, across "the roof of the world". I then went to Pakistan, cycled across the northern mountainous areas alone. I ended up staying in Pakistan for 6 months because I loved it there! I then returned to Afghanistan again. This time spending 3 weeks exploring Kabul (capital), Bamiyan, Band e Amir National Park (most beautiful place in the world) and Kandahar (ex-capital of the Taliban). After that, I went to India to learn Yoga. I'm a 200hr YTT certified yoga teacher! I spent 2 months in SriLanka teaching in a hostel.
    I went to Australia again to work. Then Covid hit, so I went to Germany and stayed half a year. It's now time to leave and grow!

    My up bringing in Hong Kong made me a responsible, diligent, well mannered and hard working person. I always try my best in everything. I'm eager to learn and I always put a lot of effort and care into what I do.

    I have a lot of experience working in hospitality. That's my main career.

    I like cycling, surfing and scuba diving.
