Save the world
I believe in the power of authentic love. I'm usually quiet and introspective, but can be totally unhinged when the stars are aligned. Wild at heart, open minded, positive, chaotic, laid back and a little naive at times, love to meet and listen to people tell their stories, enjoy diversity and good solid conversation. When I make a new friendship, they are almost always friends for life.

"Walls exist only because we build them." - Me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Talk about CS to everyone that crosses my path, and spread the good vibes along the way.
I have been quite active with CS'ing since I joined in September 2006, including dozens of stays with truly great people, many of who have become my very close friends! I try to go to CS meet's whenever I am able to, and help travellers along the way.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Spent 7 months travelling across the U.S. Building houses in Monument, Camping in Ouray and Utah was deathly cold (camping in December), and very astounding! Cooking Debbies homemade talames in the Mojave Desert was magical.
My 5 month stay in Europe (mainly Belgrade the beautiful!) was pure and true. Met so many beautiful people. one magical day flowed into the next.
