Join Couchsurfing to see Connie’s full profile. It’s free!
I am a seeker of meaningful experience, whether that be on my own, with a friend new or old, or within a community.
My favorite human qualities are awareness, openness, curiosity, creativity and compassion.
I've been traveling through Europe for 2 months now - made it through Portugal, France, Denmark, and Sweden. I'm headed to Gernmany next and then hopefully through some of Czech Republic before I head to Spain!
I'm doing a mixture of workaway, couchsurfing , staying with friends and hostels . Already met sooo many amazing pepper through all of these things and I can't wait to meet some more :)
The past few years I have spent working with a few different educational non-profits and farms around the U.S. and I just finished up a work-study program at a folk arts school, working in their garden in return for free ceramics classes.
Besides ceramics I paint and draw and play the violin, hike and walk in beautiful places, read a lot, bike and I love to cook.
My vices: chocolate, thai/indian food/any delicious food really.
