About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Hang in there~~

ABOUT ME

It is always difficult for me to describe myself in any language. One thing I am pretty sure about me is that I am not yet grown up.

Currently I am working as a doctor in the small town of Korea.
In the past, I had spent quite long time in a few foreign countries for my master degree and work also sometimes for a long vacation.

Talking about the things that I like, nice and warm beach, animals and romantic comedies, genuine people, yummy vegan food make me smile.
Living as vegan means a lot to me. Unfortunately it is kind of a barrier to get along with people in Korea though.

Hopefully I could meet more friends through CS. *^^*

PHILOSOPHY

Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.
- Albert Einstein

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have surfed several times and lucky enough I met lovely hosts. I have hosted only one time. Since my life is too busy also because I am staying in the hospital dormitory. It is kind of complicated to get a permission to host someone here. Now I can only host friends I met before.

Every Wednesday I spend time in Busan. Busan is the second big city in Korea. It is located in southern part of South Korea. So I can join some dinner or tea meeting in Busan on Wednesday. The rest of the time I am staying in another small town near by Deagu.

Anyhow I still love to meet people from all over the world. ^^

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Surfed two times in Singapore in January of 2013, those were really sweet and awesome!!
2013 summer, I surfed in London, few cities in France, those were also nice and warmhearted!!!
2014 winter, I was hosted in Boracay!
2015 winter and summer I was hosted in Mexico for a long time~~ During that long holiday I faced horrible liar host family and huge fraud. Nevertheless I met more of good and kind people at the same time. It is such a shame that kind of bad people exist in couchsurfing website. I learned very painful and expensive lesson from that. However it doesn't change my personality nor my nature that I love to meet people and trust people without any doubt or guard, truly enjoy living with people I met.
