About Me


See the world!

I think I'm calm, curious and open-minded. I like meeting and talking with people who are from different cultural backgrounds.
I believe if I want something and think about it over and over again, it comes true. I experienced it lots of times. So I try to be super positive and keep dreaming.


“When you were born you were crying and everyone else was smiling. Live your life so at the end, your're the one who is smiling and everyone else is crying.”

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


By chance, I saw a video clip on Youtube which was introduced couchsurfing by a guy. I found out it was a great idea, so I started using it.


I've surfed several times and luckily all were great so far.
I've also met some travellers, and I enjoyed hanging out with them.


I like taking photos, knitting, felting, sewing... I like making something.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like action and drama movies. My favorite movie is 'Together' directed by Chen Kaige.
Basically I like most kind of music (which is easy to listen to) but not so a big fan of heavy metal.
I like inspiring books which keep me awake and make me follow my dreams. "Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho is one of them.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I eventually travelled to Galapagos! One of my dream destinations. Swimming with sea lions, sea turtles, rays and sharks!!! I can't swim though.. I did it with a life jacket..haha

I met his holiness Dalai Lama in India and took a picture with him while holding his hand. I haven't washed my hands yet. lol Believe or not.

So many more amazing things on my way.

Teach, Learn, Share

I might teach something unintentionally, who knows.
I learn something from people, through their behavior, thought, talk and so on.
I share my life.

What I Can Share with Hosts

We can share our life stories include travelling stories.
I will happily clean the place I stay and cook some simple Korean food.
