About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To make Southeast Asia a more fun, safe, and exciting travel experience for women travelers

ABOUT ME

I'm currently on a mission to improve women's travel experience in Southeast Asia through BlondeTraveler.com, which is a travel support service, community, and magazine for women traveling Southeast Asia.

We are committed to helping travelers and communities co-exist in a friendly peaceful manner, where no one gives more than they take, and travelers are as respectful to the locals as locals are to the travelers.

Now...about me:

Restless and driven to the point of sometimes driving myself insane, I work hard and play harder. I dance on tables, drive too fast, and can kick your ass at beach volleyball (on a good day anyways...), but I also love a nice cup of tea, classical music, and reading Roald Dahl. I am living in Asia, and fantasizing about living in South America, despite the fact that I've never been there. Tango, red wine, and passion...what could be better?

PHILOSOPHY

Live life like you dance the tango - with passion, class, spontaneity, meanwhile making it all look effortless.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to encourage others to be informed about what's going on in the world. Don't let the media think for you. Learn to think for yourself, and you will learn the truth about life and the world.
