About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To travel the world: taste new foods, experience new cultures, learn new languages, all the while loving and helping people

ABOUT ME

I didn't know how to describe myself so I took a personality test and it seemed pretty accurate :)

Personality Type: Orange "Your strength is skillfulness. You are spontaneous, courageous and a natural performer. You prefer a hands on approach to learning and problem solving. You enjoy competition and must have fun and variety in your work. You like challenges, contests, and competitions, especially if they require talent, skill, and adrenaline. You stretch the limits and set new records. But if there is anything you truly need, it's freedom to be you-which is being spontaneous, free, alive. You focus on the here and now. You want to experience all that life has to offer, and you do it with gusto"

PHILOSOPHY

Life is a great big canvas, and you should throw all the paint on it you can.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I want to experience a side of traveling that is less touristy, more authentic. Traveling is about getting to know and understanding others while allowing your mind to be opened to new perspectives and cultures. I want to be a part of and contribute towards that experience. I try to provide information to travellers about places to visit and travel tips. I always try to meet other CS's, ask them questions, and look for opportunities to stay with/host other couchsurfers.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have used couchsurfing throughout Europe, South America, and the United States! My entire couchsurfing experience has been great so far and has enhanced all of my adventures.

Interests

Everything has an element of interest to me, but in case you ever find yourself running low on conversation topics with me it's not a bad idea to bring up futbol, human rights issues, or music :)

I graduated with degrees in Spanish and History and minors in Women's Studies and English Literature. I am currently pursuing a masters degree for Teaching Spanish and English as a Second Language.

Music, Movies & Books

(Currently) Music: Wild Belle, Florence + The Machine, Phantogram, AltjJ, Citizen Cope, The Beatles, Rolling Stones

Movies: Pan's Labyrinth, It's a Wonderful Life, Inglorious Bastards, Little Miss Sunshine

Books: "Don Quixote," "Amor, curiosidad, prozac, y dudas," "Wuthering Heights"

One Amazing Thing I've Done

All the places and people I've played soccer with...I love that the game is a language of its own. I've played on a gravel lot in a skirt in the pouring rain in Haiti, on a sand field looking over the volcanoes in Guatemala, and on the streets of Spain just to name a few :)

Teach, Learn, Share

Share: Southern Culture, my love for people and appreciation for the simple, beautiful things in life Learn: How to sew, to survive in the wilderness, play guitar, other languages
