About Me


Travel around the world


We are Tae and Karina. We are currently doing a around the world trip, and we are searching for new stories to tell. Our never-ending thirst for adventures made us sell the little we had and travel around the world. We hope to meet incredible people to share stories. We are both film photographers and would love to meet all of you ! The beautiful conversations about life and inspiring stories is what keep us moving !

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I really love the Couchsurfing concept and I try to participate by going to CS meetings and keeping a close contact with local Couch surfers. Hosted and Surfed ~


I got into traveling in 2004, when I was hosted by different people not through couch surfing.
With couch surfing, I surfed in various cities during my summer trip in Central Mexico in 2009.
And I also hosted people from different parts of world.
