Join Couchsurfing to see Elaine’s full profile.
Conquor the world, one couch at a time.
All about me... well to start off with the basics my name is Elaine, that's right Elaine like in Seinfeld. I am an elementary school teacher which might not sound exciting until you realize i get two months off per year.. jokes jokes, i love the children.
The one thing which we seek insatiable desire is to forget ourselves, to be surprised out of our propriety, to lose our sempiternal memory and to do something without knowing how or why; in short to draw a new circle. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiam. The way of life is wonderful; it is by abandonment.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have moved to the NORTH OF QUEBEC. If you have a car..or awesome thumb skills, you should come. I live a beautiful Cree Reserve which is on the biggest lake in Quebec. You should come check out the Cree culture (I can bring you to a nearby village called Oujé-Bougamau) where there is a beautiful museum designed by Douglas Cardinal a world-renown architect, maybe you will get to witness some northern lights if you are lucky, I can probably hook you up with a ski-doo ride if it's winter time, you can participate in a crash course in Cree language with my students or experience the local culture in a place called Murrey's lodge...after 8 km of snowshoeing you will arrive to camp where elders of the community hunt, trap, cook food and make stuff. You will be served the day's catch and can learn how to make Cree mittens.
