Join Couchsurfing to see Ashley’s full profile. It’s free!
Live life to the fullest & attempting to bring positivity to others wherever I go!
Fun loving, adventurous, free spirit, that enjoys copious amounts of music and the finer things in life! I live in the moment, love to travel and have new experiences (preferably with others). Making connections with people is something I greatly value. Every soul has it's own uniqueness and beauty and it's incredible to be able to explore the similarities and differences in all of us.
Travel to the beat of a different drum.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm fairly new to the couch surfing world, but am quite excited to be able to experience it both in the hosting realm and also as a traveler. I love meeting new people and experiencing new places, and feel like this is such a great way to be able to do both!
Hosted several travelers so far and fully enjoyed each experience! Would happily have the opportunity to treat others to the finer sights, sounds, and tastes of good ol' Harrisonburg, VA!
I enjoy music in all forms, listening, singing, dancing, playing (guitar mainly), and on and on... Meeting new people, hanging out, hooping it up (hula hooping), gettin crafty, yoga, playing games, delicious beer and wine aaaand whiskey, cooking up a storm, working at a co-op restaurant. Living life like there's no tomorrow.
Yea that about sums it up for now. :)
Music, Movies, and Books
Books: 1984, The Handmaid's Tale, The Giving Tree, The Lorax, The Song of Ice and Fire, The Alchemist, Harry Potters, etc
Movies: Almost Famous, V for Vendetta, Blow, L.A. Confidential, The Little Mermaid, All the Pixar movies, everything Hayao Miyazaki,...I enjoy movies, but also don't like to spend too much time in front of a screen. I refuse to watch bad movies, and dislike really dumb comedies...it feels like I'm wasting my time.
Shows: Downton Abbey, Firefly, Law and Order SVU, Avatar the last airbender, Game of Thrones, True Blood, Mushi Shi, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, Cowboy Bebop
Music: Always changing!!
I love so much music and have very nostalgic attachment to so many different genres/decades this list could go on and on.
favorites including 60s pop, classic rock, 70s folk rock, 80s hits, 90s!! How I miss radio of the 90s. Ska/reggae/some punk.
I dislike rap and country. But like their friendly cousins hip-hop and bluegrass.
But right at this moment I would say favorites include:
Jack White(Blunderbuss), Delta Spirit, Band of Horses, The Civil Wars, Dr. Dog, The Head and the Heart, The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket, The Devil Makes Three, M. Ward, on and on and on.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Sitting on the Santa Teresa beach in Costa Rica at sunset and watching the surfers in the red light. If only I'd had a boogie board I would have been right in there with them!
Whale watching from a peak on Oahu, HI. The strenuous hike up was worth the sunset over the whales far below...and of course the PB&Js that accompanied the view. Classy!
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach hooping lessons, perhaps cooking, yoga, and music, I dabble in poi, devil sticks, and contact juggling as well! Or would enjoy sharing any and all of those things and more!
