About Me

Hi! I'm Alorah - I've just moved to Eindhoven to work on a masters degree. I'm excited to get to know my new home better and better.

I can't host at the moment, but I like building community, meeting up, and learning & sharing. Let's go do something around the city.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

We hosted a buch of CSers in college. I got most involved in the community while living in Rio de Janeiro. You guys are awesome :) miss you a lot

Music, Movies, and Books

I like a lot of different types of music. Most represented genre on my Spotify is maybe hipster coffeeshop. ;) Living in Brazil a couple years ago got me into a mix of samba, hiphop and funk. I'm trying to learn salsa/bachata now, so add that to the list.

I read some denser things for my studies, a ton of pop-psychology trash for fun, and once in a while a nice novel that really hooks me... some all-time faves: Lolita, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands

I love movies, almost always down to go see a new one. 👍

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My 3 favorite travel memories:
- Stargazing from a tall ship in the very middle of the Atlantic ocean (so clear!)... completely drunk on stars
- Listening to the wind on the Siberian taiga
- Sitting in front of boiling lake in Dominica after a hike through the greenest jungle :)

Teach, Learn, Share

- I'd love to learn more social dances. I'm beginner at East Coast Swing, Lindy Hop, Bachata, Salsa, and Tango... would be fun to get out to any local events.

-I'm studying design philosophy and social impact, so I'm happy to be your existential conversation partner :D

-I'm really into nature and being outdoors surrounded by green, can you teach me: how do you do that in the Netherlands? :P
