About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica. I love traveling/hosting and couchsurfing has opened my mind to so many cultures and places I wouldn't have imagined visiting. So far, I have lived in four different countries. I moved to the island of Jeju in South Korea about three years ago and I have been teaching English here ever since.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have only had wonderful experiences through Couchsurfing! I have met amazing people that I hope I will always stay in touch with. I want to show people around the city and join events with other couch surfers. :) I can't host for the moment but I will hopefully when I finally settle down.


I love being outdoors, hiking, swimming, running, learning about science, traveling, and photography.
