Join Couchsurfing to see Ari’s full profile. It’s free!
to enjoy the adventure of being alive
This is what my bud says- "I've known Ari for years. I can tell you from my own experience that she's very sociable, honest, reliable, diplomatic and lots of fun. She has an uncanny ability to connect with people and has a lovely, positive nature"
Nothing too profound. I believe in the goodness and beauty of simple things. These poems articulate my beliefs better than I can- The invitation by Oriah and Desiderata by Max Ehrmann.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Happy to host and can't wait to surf
Having my first couch surfer guest come and stay next week and will start my own traveling escape in three weeks. Yay!
I've finished my undergraduate degree in social anthropology- so naturally I have an interest in all things people and culture. I love all artistic endevours- music, drawing, cooking and writing. I wish I did these things more. I'm most happy when I'm with my friends in the fresh air- taking bush walks and going for swims in the ocean.
As well as my artistic interests, I'm also conscious of how individuals, including myself can make a worthwhile contribution to the world. I'm still trying to figure out the best way I can do that.
Music, Movies, and Books
Some favourite writers- Oscar Wilde, Bronte sisters, D.H Lawrence & Thomas Hardy.
Music- an eclectic mix to say the least.. just to name a few...Jeff Buckley, Velvet Underground, Jesus & Mary Chain, Sigur Ros, Otis Redding, Grimes, Beach Boys, Beach House, The Cure, The Shins, Cat Stevens, Azealia Banks, Camera Obscura, The Smiths.
Films- Pan's Labyrinth, Wes Anderson films, Hayao Miyazaki films.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
1) walked 800k's from France across Spain!
2) watching an elephant give birth in a rural Thai village
3) Walking in the dark and rain, through an abandoned train tunnel to find thousands of amazing glow worms. It was like looking at another galaxy!
4) Meeting orangutans in the Sumatran jungle
