Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've mainly surfed especially since the cities I live in are rather small and don't really have a lot of people visiting them. But I'm hoping one day in the future to live somewhere where I can host surfers and give back some of the amazing experiences I have had.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have stayed with some amazing people so far in Paris, Vienna and Bratislava! Every single one of them were more than hospitable and amazingly kind and generous people. I am so glad I was able to have them in my life even though it was for such a brief period of time.
I have also met some lovely travelers in Alaska that allowed me to travel to the Arctic Circle with them. Impossible without coushsurfing! =)

Interests

I love to dance. Everything about it is so enticing to me. I love the way bodies move.
I love skiing, but not super intense skiing, just the casual long pretty trails where I can daydream and just be a dork about nature.
One of my favorite things is to laugh. I laugh at everything and anything. I never want to be a person that can't find humour in a situation.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The scariest thing I have ever done was jump off the Verzasca Dam at 220 meters[with a bungee ;)] I'd love to do it again! It happened so fast it was hard to understand what was happening! But the feeling I had when my feet left the ground is completely indescribable.

I was skiing in Canada and it was incredible! I was able to ski at points higher than the clouds and then ski through the clouds themselves (which is a beautiful thought, but in reality very cold and misty), but the view was incredible.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am so interested in different cultures and languages.
I love hearing stories about how people grew up and the things that are important to them.
If you speak a different language I would love to learn a phrase or two!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can try and teach a bit of basic French or if you like to dance I know a little bit of belly dance and swing dance if that interests you. =)
