About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To become a polyglot.

ABOUT ME

Pretty easy-going and usually get along with all types of people. I find the humor in almost anything and I tend to have a sarcastic sense of humor. Very independent but like to have a close group of friends to rely on and vice-versa :)

PHILOSOPHY

I highly believe in and have experienced the law of attraction: think and speak the things which you want to become true and they will. Remember your words are very powerful!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Spreading the amazing CS culture and returning the hospitality whenever I can!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

CouchSurfed during my cross-country road trip from Vancouver, BC to New York City. Everyone we met was amazing and treated us like their lifelong friends. I also CouchSurfed in Morocco and Spain and experienced the same hospitality.

Interests

Tennis, language, viticulture, agriculture (anything ending with 'culture'), good wine, good company, anything involving being outdoors or being active: running, hiking, cycling, rock rappelling, camping, bungee jumping, exploring.... (I get into being obsessed with one activity or sport and now it's spinning classes). And of course......TRAVELING!

Music, Movies & Books

All Wes Anderson films: The Darjeeling Limited, The Royal Tenenbaums, Rushmore. Also: Beginners, Like Crazy, (500) Days of Summer, Before Night Falls, Amelie, Into the Wild, Garden State.......

Tons of music. Caroline Smith & The Good Night Sleeps, Wild Child, Cults, FM Belfast, Tame Impala, The Strokes, Bob Marley, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Of Montreal, Brazilian Girls, Alexander Ebert, Spoon, Andrew Bird, Radiohead, Beck, Muse, Doves, The Shins, Iron and Wine, Sublime, Angus & Julia Stone..... I need new music- any suggestions?

Also love jazz (Earl Bostic, Lionel Hampton), classical (Chopin, Vivaldi), and flamenco (Camaron) when in the mood. I will listen to anything as long as it's not country or rap.

Books: Many. Currently reading The Vertical Farm. I'm also a National Geographic fanatic.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Volcano boarded down the Cerro Negro in Nicaragua. Jumped from a 80-foot cliff into the sea in Greece. Bungie-jumped from a 240-foot bridge in Costa Rica. Climbed Mount Toubkal, Northern Africa's highest peak. BUT the all time most unbelievable experience was the 953 kilometer walk through the Camino de Santiago, the ancient pilgrimage route throughout France and Spain. I want to go sky-diving!!!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach anyone how to play tennis! I've played and coached all my life. I can tell people about places I've lived in Canada and the US. I would love to practice my spanish while helping someone else learn english (and Arabic- just now starting to learn the alphabet).

Countries I've Visited

Morocco, Nicaragua, Panama, Spain

Countries I've Lived In

Canada, Costa Rica, Greece, Spain, United States
