About Me

I Grow Food! In May, I'M EXPANDING MY GARDENING EFFORTS! YOU HAVE A PLACE TO STAY * FOR SURE * if you can assist in the project ! The help I need is basic and would only take 60-90 minutes ( stuff like pulling up weeds , mulching, and HARVESTING ) .

We will GO ON SOME SORT OF FOOD ADVENTURE for sure too ! :)

I've been here on Oahu for over 4 years after coming for a "week long" vacation. :) I am looking for adventures outside the city such as hikes , yoga, morning WORK OUTS, growing food , lunch outings, snorkeling, or North Shore day trips.

I work in the event industry and work EVENINGS AND WEEKENDS OFTEN . * I am most free Mon, Tues, Wed., and Fri 9a.m. - 3 p.m. ! *

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I have met AMAZING FRIENDS .

I've wished there was a way to figure out right away if new people that you meet are into travel (it would be ideal if they had a stamp on their forehead). CS is great for that.

Fishing ( if anyone wants to invite me on your boat, please DO ) Any other Hawaii outdoor activity!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I saw lava SPILLING down the side of the arenal volcano in Costa Rica. The rocks would hit the side and pop open ... it looked like upside down fireworks.
