Wants to Meet Up

Join Couchsurfing to see Cindy ’s full profile. It’s free!
To continue to experience as much culture as humanly possible
My name is Cindy. After I graduated from University, I decided to leave Chicago to see what else the world has to offer me. I got a TEFL certification and decided to quit my job and go abroad. I've spent some time in London, Spain and France enjoying what there is to see in Europe. Unfortunately, my tour has ended, and I'm back in Chicago. While I can't wait to go back, I've used couchsurfing here in my home city to meet people, and in hopes of giving the same hospitality others have given to me.
**While my profile says that I am maybe hosting, chances are my hours in any particular set of days are weird, due to the life of someone in the service industry. I may be able to host you for an evening (scheduling permitted), but it is a bit unlikely.**
I CAN however take some time to show you the city, do some of the touristy things with you, or meet you for dinner or drinks. I love meeting new people, so I'd love to be able to at least make your experience in my city more enjoyable!
You only see the things you expose yourself to.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Since I've been traveling, I've used CS to surf a couple of times, but aside from that I've used it to meet people. I've also hosted one person, and when I'm done traveling, I wouldn't mind doing it again ;) I've had a lot of good experiences and have made a lot of good friends with this site! :D
I like meeting new people, seeing the sites, hanging out, watching movies, reading books, going for drinks, and running.
- language exchange
Music, Movies, and Books
Movies: Moulin Rouge, Titanic, Pearl Harbor,
Music: Maroon 5, Michael Jackson, Pretty Lights, to name a few
Books: Brave New World, I loved Harry Potter, anything by Jodi Picoult.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I haven't traveled a lot as of yet, but the most memorable were the first time I saw the ocean in the Bahamas, and the first time I saw a mountain in Spain. I'm a city girl and nature always surprises me with how beautiful it can be.
Teach, Learn, Share
- I am certified to teach English, so if you need tutoring, I can help!
- I love food, and would love to learn recipes from different cultures. Also, I would be interested in language exchange.
- I love running, and am always looking for running partners, whether they are visiting or living in my city.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Insight on the differences between my country and yours. Traditional Mexican dishes (as long as the ingredients exist in your country!). I am a great running partner if you're into running :)
