29, @Taipei, Taiwan
Hello! My name is Jonathan and I'm an Australian who's in Taipei to learn Mandarin. I really enjoy trying new things (my philosophy is to try everything at least once) and so I'm really keen to explore all that Taiwan has to offer from its food, to its culture to its mountains. I'm also very keen to practice my Mandarin by joining local Taiwanese people doing their regular activities with their friends (sport, hiking, eating etc.)
Australia is full of amazing things to do, I've visited every state but there is still a lot more to do! There's great activities like camping, going to the beach, snowboarding, snorkelling and hiking. My hometown of Sydney has great food, I especially love coffee and gelato! My travel style is to explore and try new things whilst soaking up the atmosphere and culture rather than just ticking of things on a list. I enjoy doing life with the local people to understand what their lives are like and joining people in the things they enjoy doing.
I love trying new things and can get interested in nearly any activities, sport, cooking, shows etc. Back at home I studied a Business degree and worked as a management consultant specialising in marketing before changing careers to be a high school teacher. I love basketball and soccer and all things outdoors. I also really enjoy cooking, live shows and reading. Most of all I love doing any activities with fun and welcoming people :)
