About Me

I have traveled to 46 of the 50 US states as a tourist (i.e. to explore & experience, not because of business). In my 20's I backpacked through Europe for 3 months twice, once around northern Europe & the other around southern Europe, which also included Egypt & Israel. My most recent trips have been to Australia, Costa Rica, & Belize. I love history, culture, languages, & outdoor fun like hiking, snorkeling, & low-adrenaline adventures. I don't seek out the high-adrenaline activities when I visit a place, but every once in a while I'll try something new, like zip-lining in Costa Rica.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am trying to become more fluent in Spanish & would love a community of like-minded learners & speakers.


I love to hang out with & hear stories from other world travelers. They are some of the coolest people I've met. When I can't travel myself, I love to travel through the travel photos & experiences of my Facebook friends, watch TV shows on travel, or do something locally, like a cultural festival or restaurant.
