About Me


Trying to see everything,learn everything, and slow down the life blur!


Whovian, powered by tofu, trying to get the hang of traveling solo around SE Asia and chat with new people without being extremely awkward and scaring them away :-).
Into the introverted arts of listening and noticing, people watching, and latching onto a strange topic and going on a roll!

Love renting a motorbike or bicycle everywhere I visit and going for an exploratory cruise. Did Roller Derby in South Korea and would love meeting up with other derby ladies and widows.
Like discussing any and all nerdy t.v. shows or technology/gadgets. Think everything is humorous, people should just jump right into real conversation, as I am not really skilled at the art of small talk.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meeting up with people, trying to find activities while traveling, seeing the city through the eyes of a local who loves it and wants to share their knowledge


Trying to update for 2016! My first true couch surfing was outside of Melbourne in the suburb of Truganina, Australia, which was a funny and great experience, Austria, Italy, South Korea, hopefully more!
