About Me

I love to travel and I miss home, and I love to travel so much and I love home so much that I'm expecting I'll feel this opposition for a very long time

I will always be missing someone, and I think that's the price of having an interesting life

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It started because I was broke and could only afford to travel this way. Now, I frequently prefer it to hostels or hotels! (And I'm still pretty broke, too.)


I love dancing and singing KTV and getting drunk and reading and eating fried food and eating salads and getting onstage and talking to children (which is okay because I'm a teacher) and being outside and climbing things and snorkeling and looking at animals

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Right now, I'm pretty proud of the full half-hour headliner set I was fortunate enough to perform in an all-female stand-up comedy show a few months back.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I think it's always a nice touch when people who stay with me are thoughtful enough to leave me a little something on their way out - a keychain from their home country, a beer, some Mexican tamarind candy, etc... it's a great way to build up a physical representation of mismatched memories.

So I try to do the same!
