About Me

I am a recent University graduate from Canada spending a year living and working in France while improving my French language skills. I live near Paris and plan to visit as often as possible. This is the first time I am doing any serious traveling, and I plan to see as much of my surroundings as possible while I am fortunate enough to be here!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I would most like to visit the following places:

- Dublin, Ireland
- London, UK
- Bruges, Brussels (Belgium)
- Hallstatt, Austria
- Isle of Barra, Scotland
- Barcelona, Madrid, Cordoba, Ibiza (Spain)
- Croatia
- St. Petersburg, Russia

If you have insider tips, or currently reside in any of these places, I would love to connect! I will also be visiting Paris regularly while I am here, and would love some information about where to go/what to do!

Interests

I love music. It is very big part of my life, and of my upbringing. I don't know of many better feelings than discovering a new artist that you have never heard of, and going through their catalogue. Even better, discovering that you love an artist that has been around forever, but you have never been exposed to! Would be more than willing to have a jam session, if you have a guitar or bass handy!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Picked up and moved to a foreign country!

Teach, Learn, Share

I have not traveled extensively, but I want to. I am very interested in opinions different than my own, and enjoy talking with people of different backgrounds than my own. I love to learn about places that I may one day be able to visit!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I am not a fantastic cook, but am always willing to try! I can, however provide some music - I don't usually travel with an instrument, but if you have one laying around I would love to play together!
