About Me

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I haven't done couch surfing in quite some time--and couldn't remember my account name that I used before--but want to get started again. I am doing a cross country trip this summer and hope to explore some cities (where camping will not be an option). Exploring new cities with locals is always more fun and having a place to park and a place to relax would be much appreciated.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

After college I decided to take a year off to travel. I worked for a time and saved money for a flight to India. I spent the better part of four months exploring India by bus and train. My travels took me from lazy canals in Kerala to the hectic bustle of New Delhi.

I met lovely people, camped under the stars in the Rajastan desert, participated in Holi, was in the hospital twice, stayed at two Ashram, and tasted my way through as much chai and Indian food as possible.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I am passionate about cooking and about exploring new places. I am very relaxed and am happy to relax and stay in as much as I am eager to go out and explore.

Countries I’ve Visited
