About Me


Enjoy my life which is only traveled once! :)
Keep wandering around the World. This heart of mine was made to travel this world!

I am new here in Barcelona in order to complete my another adventure♥
I was born and raised in Korea (Asia), had lived in Canada (North America) and had lived in Argentina (South America) for 5 years, it is time to live in Europe! (a plausible excuse). Since 2014, I have lived abroad and have traveled around the world in order to make my souls blossom.


I've been using Couchsurfing to get to know new people and help travelers.
*Couchsurfing is not Tinder, hope that all the men know it*

Since I was 21 years old, I've traveled without any financial support besides my first trip with my sister. I've saved my travel budget while working for full time/part time. Plus, after traveling around South America, suddenly I decided to live in that continent. That's why I had lived in Buenos Aires for more than 5 years. While living there and even discovering Latin America more, I had worked for an US financial company. The life is absolutely unpredictable! I quit my job in Korea, as it was not the way that I wanted to live. That is how my journey were started.

One of the online newspapers (Sorry, but of course, it's from Korea) published my life in Buenos Aires and my travel around South America ;

Love People, Travel and Culture! I think these words are represent myself :)
I'm positive and outgoing person as I don't hesitate to get to know people and things around. I'm also enthusiastic person who would like to say "Now" rather than "No".


"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover!"
This is what I've thought about my life :)
