About Me


To learn, live, and love the cultures of the world


My name is Claire. I'm embarking on a year-long adventure with my boyfriend, Derek, to travel in Europe and Asia. I recently graduated from UCSD with degrees in Sociology and Spanish Literature. I'm passionate about social and environmental sustainability and have been building my life around these values. I am a vegan, a nature lover, a people lover, an inquisitive and caring soul.

In the upcoming year, I hope to expand my mind and learn from the cultures and people of the world. There is so much knowledge to gain from listening to people's stories and from taking time to live as others do.


Love yourself, love others, love the Earth.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


As I will be traveling for the next year, I hope to participate as a Surfer. In the future I'd like to also be a Host.


I'm new to CouchSurfing, but looking forward to starting!


I enjoy backpacking and hiking, gardening and cooking, dancing and art making, intense philosophical discussions and working with others...among several other interests.

10 Things I Hate About You

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've had the privilege to experience many amazing things...I'll get back to this.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to cook (vegan food) and would be happy to teach you, share some recipes, or even just feed you!

I'm learning language and I'd love to learn yours. I speak English and am proficient in Spanish, but I have much to learn and would like to start discovering new languages.
