About Me


to not slack off


We are a couple from Korea. Both 24 years old, respectful and friendly. We love going on picnics, taking walks and all outdoor stuff. We are on a 2-month backpacking trip in Europe and would love to make friends along the way. To find out about Sunyoung, click! https://www.couchsurfing.org/people/sunyoung.gong/

About Jiwon
I'm curious, easily amused and easily pleased. I love being surrounded by unfamiliar climates, languages and people. Music, sunshine, good food and company make me happy.

Being able to watch French and Japanese films without subtitles and still laugh at the right moments is my goal for.. this decade.

I was born and raised in Korea until I was 15. I went on an exchange to Vermont in gr.9 and i've been living at many homes away from home ever since.

In 2010, I did an internship at Hokkaido University as a research assistant. I fell in love with the city, got addicted to Soup-curry, exclusively drank Sapporo-Limited Edition only available in Hokkaido, learned to bike in the harshest weather while holding the transparent umbrella with my left hand. During my stay, I discovered the wonderful world of CouchSurfing! I'm so excited to finally be part of the community:)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I sometimes go out to CS hangouts. During our europe trip this year, Sunyoung and I surfed on five couches. My CS experience has been incredible so far and I'm sure it will continue to be!
