About Me

Hi, おはよう, Hola, Bonjour~:)
How are you?

I am Caru. I have made my name by myself since when I was high school student. I took it from 'Carpe diem'. It's meaning of 'leaving a heartful life'.

After graduated I do not go university directly. I do not know yet what I want to do exactly but I do not want to decide it hastily.

I have started to learn everything from my daily life, the outside at school. Walking alone, reading novels, meeting new people, attending some interesting lecture, journeying countryside in Korea with close friends and sometimes I snuck into friend's university class! haha.

Every places became my school and every people who I met they made me happy. I am being with full of great and thankful moments.

but One day, I thought deeply about my safety boundary and I doubted my ability. I can not explain about whole thing in here but the important thing is 'I live so comfortable. I am so lucky! but if I content it, I will be a coward!' I thought-Let's we talk face to face of it :).

I hope to extend my imaginable scale beyond my boundary. I decided Journey alone. I am really afraid of it but I want to dare of it. I believe 'Everything will be okay If I meet people, existences and place indeed heartfully.'

After a few days later I decided to go to Camino de Santiago. I can not chose one reason 'why Santiago'. It was just came to me quite a few diverse ways through my dream, new papers, songs book and someone's voices..

So My big plain is..
-Paris, France
-St. jean pied de port
-Camino de Santiago
10/12~ more 40 days.
-Burkina faso(South Africa)

I hope to explore diverse culture in the world. And at this moments, I want to meet you :)

Thank you for your reading

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

First, I have curiosity about every difference thing! 'meeting people' is best way for knowing it and also 'place' give many thing like atmosphere I think.

Second, I guess It will be make more diversity opportunity each other! share food, paly new game, find interesting place and give happiness.

Third, It will be give a chance talk more deeply. I always express my deep emotional in my favorite park near my town.

Fourth, actually every cost for my journey are my own money without only ticket by airplane. Since in this February I have been getting some part time job and working hard. I hope to continue my journey at least on February next year.

And last, actually I also did touristic trip. But for me, without exchange with people to people, I can not feel something special!!! And I realized, I prefer to sharing the stories, cooking together and singing together with diverse people!!! Without touch meeting, everything is not thing special for me.

So that is the reason why I started Couchsurfing!


Mainly I have learned South African dance for 3years with improvisation dance. The interested part in Those dance are open to all people. In this world, there are a lot of reason about unconnected people to people like age, gender, academe background, language, race but my teachers always say. "we are all connect through dance and music."(I really love them!).

And also 'finding connection with people living under the same sky' and 'empathy' are big subject in my life. I feel responsibility from knowing about the voices of minority and meeting hidden situations. so I am finding my method how can I make a connection with people and in this world. And If you have interest about it, I want to ask to you.
'How do you make a connection of this world?'.

During the Trip, I have started drawing. I did not learn about drawing skill but I love to drawing and I am enjoying well. I like to meet drawing people. So interesting!

Music, Movies, and Books

My Favorite Artist is Mikaël Theimer. He connect with strange people through his camera. I wish show his several projects:

I like folk songs like 'five hundred mile', peaceful songs like 'imagine', 'one love', playing for the change team's songs, Jazz like 'take five', some feel deeply soul like 'yellow', 'hello' and a lot of Disney's songs! And also several movie soundtrack songs(OST!!) like 'searching for sugar man' and 'once'. in addition I love The Beatles, Mika, Phil soon-Jang's songs and Myung whun-Chung's conducting.

And when I do my work, I prefer to listen 'Ludovico Einaudi's live concert' on the youtube. It is AMAZING!

But the most beautiful and make me being most happy music is people's live voices with simple instruments for love and peace :)!

-Antonia's Line

And I eat everything very deliciously. Chefs like me💕 and I also love cookers!

I walked Camino de Santiago and I made every moments was beautifully in my pilgrimage. I able to say, I am proud of me!

In addition, I live my daily life seems like journey :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I have learned daily life thing like cooking, making clothes/furniture, playing the guitar/Korean traditional instruments, farming... for 9years in my elementary and middle school.

And after I have studied social state in this serious Capitalism generation and humanity through nuclear power plant system in my high school

Now I am learning African dance!
I can share several things like those-!

I have curiosity about your country education system. Because nowadays Korea all of people really living tired even if earn money a lot. Many people can not enjoy their own life. Basically one of the main reason is Korea regular school education. So I wonder about students education experiments in the other nation.

I can share all of thing with my heart.
I can cook korean food, I can singing with guitar, I can teach how to make colorful lug by using useless clothes.
