About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Trying to expand my network for traveling and life.

ABOUT ME

About me? What couldn't they say? I've done a little bit of this and little bit of that. They'd have to say that I'm definitely the most adventurous out of the bunch. I'm a good time and just genuinely like connecting with people. Apologies for any spelling or grammatical errors, speaking 5 languages can becomes a tax.

PHILOSOPHY

''I am he who does not separate the values of his mind from the actions of his body.''

''Yesterday, today and tomorrow are all the same.''

''How will your mirror ever be polished if you are irritated at every rub?''

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Never done. Trying to get some experience under my belt before I head out on an adventure.

Interests

I love speaking foreign languages and meeting new people. With over 7 billion people now on the planet it does not make sense to have an isolationist mentality. So I spend my time eating out or studying, since I'm in school. Most times, I just really like to curl up with a glass of wine or cup of tea at hand and either watch a movie or get a book going. Also, I like to cycle, yoga, or run when I can.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Moments that left me awestruck?

The first one would be when I got off the plane at Charles de Gaulle Aéroporte in Paris. Paris is quite possibly one of the most breathtakingly beautiful cities on the planet. The Parisians, not so much. But that's another conversation. Smelling fresh croissants with butter or preserves is like walking into a readied hot shower.

Also, I think when I realized that I could fashion my life how I wanted that was a big moment as well. It is a hard thing to do in this day and age. However, I think having an irregular journey such as I have had is what will make my story so much fuller than if I had one drawn from a well of cookie cutters.
