About Me


Live out an adventure to remember!!!


I recently got back from an Au Pair adventure in Amsterdam. I am now "home" in Boston and trying to live an exciting, adventurous life like the one I had in Amsterdam but out of my home town! I love art, music, food and life in general and I am always up for an adventure to a new gallery, cool artsy shop or a long discussion over coffee. I am also born and bred in this city, so I am a good person to ask for tips, if I do say so myself ;)


It's corny and from elementary school but "What's done is done and what's not should be FUN!!!"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


After meeting people in Amsterdam and while traveling my friend Iwona and I gave it a try and couch surfed through Stockholm, Talinn and Helsinki. Needless to say it was one of the best travel experiences of my life and I am so excited to host myself!


People, places, things. The world. I am really open to discussing everything and everything. But, if food and cute children can be thrown in there I will be even more interested!

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies are not really my thing but I am in a quite, calm music phase. Jazz, soft rock and classical music styles are definitely my favorite for now but I am also known to listen to a ska album or two every once in a while.
I love books, as long as they have a great story line. Most of my favorites are kids classics like Holes, Walk Two Moons and The Curious Case of the Very Last Whangdoodle, but I am up for it all!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I recently went to Australia and was lucky enough to experience a day in the Blue mountains. There i walked through the rain forest, took a ride on a glass bottomed cable car over a ravine, took a ride on the steepest train ride in the world and saw some of the most beautiful views of rock formations and mountains I have ever seen.

Teach, Learn, Share

Well, I am a trained primary school teacher so I can always teach you to read, write and do simple math, but I think the best way to learn form someone is to talk to them about their perspective and their culture! Come to Boston and chat and I am sure we will both learn from each other!
