Saving to travel again. The big plan is to circumnavigate the world by train where possible. Fly to Europe, and take the Trans Siberian to Asia then down to Indonesia.
I am an adventurous soul who would love nothing more than to be able to freely travel to any destination at any time. Over the years travel has become my main passion in life along with my sport, Gymnastics/Trampoline. I competed nationally and internationally in trampoline for 14 years, and I now ocassionally write and film for Gymnastics websites.
Don't look feel or act my age and don't think I ever will.
My life's dream is to travel and blog and write.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I joined couschsurfing before I left for a one year working holiday in Australia with the intention of doing some couchsurfing. It turned out that I mainly used hostels during my trip.When I returned to Vancouver I hosted a few travellers. I have been to some local couchsurfing events and have met a lot of really great people.
I have hosted two guests so far and it has been a great experience. I loved being a tour guide and found a great appreciation for where I live and work, by showing it to someone from somewhere else! I have also met some people at CS events and have made some great friends. Travellers are the best kinds of people- open minded, friendly, adventurous, welcoming... I really miss travelling right now so by hosting and meeting other who love travelling it's like the world is coming to me!!

Teach, Learn, Share
I teach Gymnastics and Trampoline and have done so for the past 14 years. I also have taught English as a second language. I love to learn languages and find I pick them up quite quickly. Would love to introduce people to my language and my sport!
I recently presented at my local library on my travels and this may become an ongoing thing. Many people ask me how I travel alone and how I do it affordably so I like sharing this info :)
What I Can Share with Hosts
I'm friendly, kind and fun! I'd love to learn about new cultures and languages
