About Me

ABOUT ME

I've always wanted to meet people from around the world and I joined CS in order to be more of a citizen of the world and enjoy the company of people from different cultures. I think you learn so much about yourself and life in general from meeting different kinds of people from different ways of life. It always gives you a new perspective on things which I love. I hope to be able to host in the future as well.

PHILOSOPHY

One of the biggies that pops into my head since I think it's related to travel are the quotes from "Lost in Translation." Loved how that movie summed up the feelings of awe and wonder, loneliness, adventure, fun, and meeting new people you'll never see again while traveling haha

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've only surfed but want to eventually host and for now just trying to meet new people.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far I've only couchsurfed on a trip to France and absolutely loved it. Every experience is different which makes it a much more interesting way to travel.

Interests

So many things. But off the top of my head art, philosophy, travel, nutrition, cooking, music, languages, yoga, plants, and meditation.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Paraglided off the coast of Peru. The feeling of the rushing cold wind and flying at the level of skyscrapers with the ocean underneath was amazing.
