About Me

CURRENT MISSION

My mission is to assist all my fellow travelers and to get assistance when needed.

ABOUT ME

Outgoing and adventurous person that likes to have fun and play sorts. I like to do just about anything, as long as it is fun. I love to Travel, been to 76 countries already... and will continue to add more! My next trip planned will be to Nicaragua in October 2015 and Dubai in Summer of 2016. I have to try to determine where I will go in Oct 2016 for my Birthday, I am thinking Malaysia or Venezuela... any recommendations?

PHILOSOPHY

Do unto others as you want done unto you; Treat others how you want to be treated!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I participated when I was in Norway, and I couldn't find a hotel. The hotel receptionist only had one night each in 4 different hotels, so she recommend to me to try CS. I didn't get a "couch", but my next trip to Turkey really go me started. I didn't get a "couch" there also, but I was invited to so many events and met great people. I had already PAID for my hotel, so when I was offered a couch after each meeting, I declined, but got a lot of references. And that's how I started my CS career! LoL

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I had my first "Guest" on 31 Mar 09 and ended up hosting over 15 in Germany. I have only hosted 8 in the US... Guess Fayetteville is not a place people want to visit! LoL I have been hosted at least 50 times by some awesome people! I have had nothing but a great experience so far... I love it!

Interests

Sports, bowling, shooting pool, traveling, discovering new cities, taking pictures, exploring new places, music, literature, people watching, smiling faces, skiing, snowboarding, movies, theater plays, reading, talking, walking, yoga, great conversation, dancing, running, lifting weights all outdoor activities, giving massages (I was a licensed massage therapist), theater, skiing, snow mobiling, learning about different lifestyles and other activities. I like animals and going for long walks in the nature. As stated, I am adventurous!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I have seen 76 different countries, visited 6 of the 7 continents in the world and I have bungee jumped off a bridge. Updated!! The pillow fight in Cologne was so much fun, see my pictures for details.

Teach, Learn, Share

UPDATED!!! I learned that there are different types of people all over the world... there are some we will never understand, based off of norms, beliefs and culture. But to get to know them and how they "tick" (like a clock) is so incredible. I have learned so much about people and their culture by CS. It's not all about money, it's about life experiences!
