About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To meet, support, and learn from fellow travelers! I love to have new fun experiences with vibrant people.

ABOUT ME

I came from a small town and really got the travel bug after I moved to Brazil. I have since been to 5 continents and some really amazing places. However, I feel like there is STILL so much to see and experience! I'm very open, social, and fun. I believe in balance in life and consider myself pretty Zen. I feel so alive when I travel and grow personally so much by having that experience.

PHILOSOPHY

All we are is a result of what we have thought. -Buddha

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have been able to Couch Surf in Sao Paulo, and stayed with my past couch surfers in Lisbon and Seville. I've also surfed in Texas! I usually would stay at hostels when I travel and have met great people that way. However, when I lived in Brazil I really "lived" with the locals in their homes and in their lives. I am very excited about Couchsurfing and showing you around my city! I'm also excited to come and explore yours!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have Couchsurfed now in Sao Paulo, Lisbon, & Seville. It was an incredible experience because I surfed with people I previously met through couch surfing. Absolutely wonderful time. I have hosted many friends from all over the world.

Interests

People, culture, languages, travel (obviously), alternative medicine, dogs, cars, beaches, men, etc.

Music, Movies & Books

I love something with a good beat. Not into rap or crazy stuff. lol I love to catch a movie now & then. Electronic music is great or vocal trance. Also love various musical genres from around the world.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I traveled by myself to Thailand and rode an elephant! I learned Portuguese from scratch as an adult. I've become what I have envisioned my life to be.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you Portuguese or English. I can also teach you massage techniques. I do many different things, ride a motorcycle, play golf, scuba dive, rock climb etc. I am happy to share my travel experiences with you.
