About Me


To explore more opportunities abroad and explore the many adventures of the sea


This was me 18 months ago. I went after my dream, sold everything, quit my full time job and booked a one -way ticket Nov 2010 to Bangkok. Open book, open road. I'm still going strong and loving this life! After a year of surfing Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, snowboarding the Himilayan Peaks, and dropping down into some deep spiritual teachings I'm now ready for some western culture. From India to back to Indonesia then Australia! A land I've been curious about for ages~~~~
I guess you could say I'm just a simple gal living in the U.S. and feeling the pull to explore another journey in life---travelling the globe. For how long? Who knows...what will I do? Who knows....what will come out of it? Pure adventure!
I currently live in San Francisco and have a full time 9-5pm job. It's great, I feel truly blessed to have such an amazing job that allows me to be free and creative, but the issue is I'm no longer challenged. The roots are splitting and need to be replanted. And not planted by moving up the corporate laddder, but rather by selling all my stuff...who needs stuff right...and travel! Since May I've been couch surfing with friends, housesitting,and subletting. I'm still working, yet living out of bag with no stuff! It's been an adventure soo far but the true adventure starts just around that next corner.
A month ago I booked a one-way ticket to Bangkok---an open road, an open book...why not, right!
The story begins mid Nov. May the adventure soon begin!


Live life as if it's your last day. Look into it deeper rather than just the mask- take it off.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


By spreading the word....once I get my first stay.


Well I have not couch surfed using this site- but recently I have been couch surfing amongst friends, and friends of friends. I can say that it's been a blast and an experience.


Travelling of course, anything under the sun,yoga,beach, mountains, good music, friends and embracing life!, laughing! the best therapy, surfing-snowboarding-mountain biking- socializing- and exploring new roads, new books, peoples stories, and strive for pure inspiration--

Music, Movies, and Books

I love music! Live concerts, festivals, in prompt 2's, etc. Books- I don't have a favorite as of now I need a new one and time to read one! Magazines are what I pick up-that is until the suitcase goes away and the backpack back comes out.
Not much for television- however a good flick is always nice. Favorite movie- gosh there's soo many- I'm a sucker for 80's- the color purple- and the breadkfast club- I know boring right...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Lived in Costa Rica for a year and trekked and worked in New Zealand for 9 months---this took me to where I am today.
Oh and graduating from college of course! Wow was that a great day! ----- and since this entry- travelled Thailand, Lao,Vietnam, Indonesia, Malasyia, India, and Sri Lanka

Teach, Learn, Share

I would love to learn about your culture- whether it's through just having a place to rest and checking out your couch, or exploring what you call your culture.
I can surely show you mine through cooking, conversation, a beer, some coffee, a surf, a yoga session, massage, a hike a laugh!. I'm just an easy going Cali gal that tries to live life in the sun! :)
