Poorly and reluctantly transitioning to adulthood in Australia
I'm a serial wanderer, connoisseur of fine breads and cheeses, avid napster & gym rat.
I had five years of sanuk while teaching abroad in Southeast Asia, then spent 15 months seeing as much of the U.S. as I could.
Current Travel Bucket List: the Maldives, Seychelles, Iceland, Mongolia, Croatia, Portugal
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've couchsurfed in Mexico, the U.S. and Australia. Hopefully one day, I'll live somewhere where I can actually host people... but I'm more than happy to meet up for drinks!
The Chicago Cubs and Bears, University of Iowa football, sandwiches, Mexican and Thai food (not necessarily together), being active--running, yoga, hiking, rock climbing--but also sleeping as much as possible, drinking extreme amounts of alcohol and seeing the world with an insatiable case of wanderlust.
- rock climbing

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Camped on the Great Wall
Watched the Men's Olympic 100m from the front row (Gold - Usain Bolt WR 9.79)
Watched an orangutan snack on some leaves from about 10 feet
Climbed the epic Mt. Kinabalu in one
Hiked to The Wave in Northern Arizona
Walked among the largest trees in the world at Sequoia National Park (It may not sound so impressive, but see for yourself - it was a religious experience.)
