About Me

Hello, we are 🙋‍♀️Seojin and 🙋‍♂️Jongsu from South Korea🇰🇷, embarking on our world🌍 journey now.

I had dreamed of traveling the world since I was young, but it wasn't until I was over 30 that I finally started my journey, held back by vague fears and practical reasons. I wanted to experience the world and meet many people before it was too late.

we eager to connect with people from diverse backgrounds, immerse myself in their cultures, and exchange stories about life and travel. Our goal is to forge friendships worldwide through travel, fostering lasting connections and unforgettable memories. We relish meaningful conversations, storytelling, and embracing cultural diversity, striving to create enriching experiences for hosts and fellow travelers alike❤️.

We're a couple who take care to be considerate and keep our surroundings tidy. If there are any rules or requests we should follow at your place, please let us know. We'll do our best to abide by your rules.

If you're interested in cooking Korean food together or need assistance with recipes, I'm here to help, and I can also treat you to some Korean dishes🥘. Here are some Korean dishes we can make👩‍🍳🧑‍🍳.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Cultural Exchange:
Many people use Couchsurfing to immerse themselves in local cultures, meet new people, and experience a destination from a local's perspective.

Meeting New People &amp: Authentic Experience:
Couchsurfing is not just about finding a free place to stay but also about making new friends, connecting with like-minded individuals, and building international networks. Staying with a local host can provide a more authentic and unique travel experience.

Personal Growth: Engaging with different cultures and meeting new people through Couchsurfing can be a valuable learning experience that promotes personal growth and broadens one's perspective.

Ultimately, the reasons for using Couchsurfing can vary widely from person to person, but it often boils down to a desire for authentic experiences, meaningful connections, and memorable adventures while traveling. Now in 2024, I am traveling as a guest, but when I return home, I also want to provide a home for travelers and share many stories.
