About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To find happiness, the hard way...

ABOUT ME

My life has been a bit of a roller-coaster of recent times. The high's have been high and the low's have been equally as low. No matter what, it's made me a stronger person and made me more determined to make the most of my life and learn from my mistakes.

I believe in pursuing personal happiness, regardless of what others may say, believe or think of you for doing so. I believe in having big dreams, even though they may never actually come true. I believe in being my own person, my own character and having my own mind, regardless of where I am in the world.

I try to live life spontaneously and take things as they come. I always seek adventure and I get bored very very easily! I travel whenever I can because that's when I am at my happiest! I love to learn new languages, meet new cultures first hand, and eat all the different types of worldwide cuisine as humanly possible! Hitchhiking is one of my passions and I hope one day to hitchhike a very long way for no particular reason at all :)

PHILOSOPHY

To make the most of every second and try to live life will a smile on my face!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Couch Surfing never ceases to amaze me, it restores my faith in people and it reminds me of just how beautiful our world can be!

Interests

Languages, Travelling, Writing, Foreign Cinema, Hitchhiking.

Music, Movies & Books

I love Japanese Cinema, for example films such as Love Exposure, Battle Royale and Ichi The Killer. I enjoy British Cinema too, films such as Human Traffic, Boy A and The Business. Can't go wrong with animated movies, some of my favourites are Spirited away, Grave of The Fireflies and classic Disney as well :) Others on my list include: Forrest Gump, The Motorcycle Diaries and BIG

Oh, and seeing as I am about to come back to Korea again, I should probably give some Korean movies a mention. I like Old Boy, A Tale of Two Sisters and I even like My Sassy Girl :)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Exploring China with new friends. Exploring the coloured lakes of Jiuzhaigou, hiking through Yading national park and watching a sunrise over Meili Snow Mountain. Maybe the happiest time of my life, never felt so free!
