Travel extensively by work, volunteer and just living life.
I'm one of the quieter girls you'll ever meet. Take the time, break a smile, say something random and open up to me.. and who knows? Always up for an adventure, outting or something equally challenging.
I hail from Oakland and up until 18, I've never stepped more than 50miles from where I lived. Now, I'm more than 469 miles away. I hope in my lifetime, I'll encounter great people, enjoy the simple pleasures I never had and travel further than my imagination can take me. I love listening to stories and perhaps that's one reason why I'm so quiet.. they take me away until I can do that myself. In the meantime, I'm going try to pick up as many languages as I can conversationally :)
Passed through: Tokyo (Japan), Salt Lake City (UT, USA)
Stayed: Shanghai (China)

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
A recommendation from a close friend
First time! :) I hope my experiences as a partial couch-surfer will deepen friendships and life experiences. I hope in this future, I will be able to open my home to traveling strangers who need a place to stay.
music, friends, food, running, tennis, learning about life and positive psychology, traveling
