About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live in the Bay Area and LOVE IT!

ABOUT ME

Basically I am a nice, friendly girl who will make pleasant conversation with you about anything at all, and if we get to know each other better, you will find that I am quite outgoing, love a friendly and respectful debate, am sometimes loud, I laugh a lot, and generally very positive about life, meeting new people, and going out and doing fun things. I love adventures and some could say I have a pretty rebellious nature. My background is that I am half-Korean, half-American, have lived in both the U.S. and Korea, have traveled to Germany, Spain, Peru, Bolivia, and Brasil. I am a 'city girl' at heart, love the hustle and bustle and anonymity of a huge city, but some new experience traveling recently have taught me to appreciate rural life and also enjoying nature and the outdoors!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I kind of informally participate in CS. If there is a local event that catches my eye, I will show up to it and make some new friends, maybe host a traveler I meet there. Sometimes if the mood strikes me, I invite someone to stay on my couch. I like the no strings attached approach.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Started couchsurfing for the first time in my trip to South America in 2012. I have only had positive experiences... I couchsurfed a few nights in Trujillo, Peru and Cusco, Peru and met great hosts and other CS members. In Salvador de Bahia, Brazil, the CS community really came through for me... I had just lost all my clothes and so many girls offered to donate some clothes to me! Went to a great concert and visited a beach on an island with the Salvador CS group too. I made amazing new friends all over Brazil.

Interests

Good music, good movies, swimming, bike riding, martial arts, hanging out with friends, speaking Spanish, speaking Portuguese, learning new languages, figuring out what to do with my life!

Favorite movies - Pulp Fiction, Mujeres al Borde de un Ataque de Nervios (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown) and almost any other Almodovar movie, The Big Lebowski, Little Miss Sunshine, many more I can't rememberFavorite music - 90s rap such as Salt N Pepa, Tupac, Biggie; lots of hip hop too many to list; mash ups such as The Hood Internet; DANCE MUSIC - Justice, Spank Rock; and of course The Beatles and The Talking HeadsFavorite books - Love in the Time of Cholera (Garcia Marquez), On The Road (Kerouac), The Name of the Rose (Umberto Eco), Niebla (Miguel de Unamuno), Calvin and Hobbes comics, soooo many more.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I traveled around Spain a lot, but my favorite day was when I was in Barcelona and I made it my 'official Antoni Gaudi' day. I went to see the Parque Guell, Casa Batllo, La Pedrera, and the Sagrada Familia! And I went to some other lesser known Gaudi architecture sites. It was one of the best and most beautiful days of my life! Oh yeah.. I also went to Macchu Pichu, Peru! No big deal... :)
