About Me


Inhale community


Newness is addicting. I recently stumbled into a grocery whose main clientele were of another race than I. Invigoration swept over me, the unfamiliarity made me feel somehow secure and inspired.


Love, preparing for the next step with an eternal perspective.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I open-mindedly move around, absorbing, attempting to share, growing. The CS mentality is so beneficial for this planet. This generation of citizens of the world can do so much, and certainly will as it grows... simply facilitating such a vast community of those willing to engage in open peaceful dialogue about anything will no doubt result in helpful tolerance and understading of different lifestyles, different races, different cultures.


I'm new and exctited to develop a CS reputation that will enable me to share and be shared with more, to move around more freely, receiving more real experiences than a Lonely Planet travel life might provide.


Arts, Creating things, getting into the bush to receive understanding/ inspiration, urban strolling to receive understanding/ inspiration.
