About Me


Hey hey! I'm currently a student who's trying to have adventures when I'm not bogged down in school work. I like to take advantage of any free time I have to enjoy life and experience new places and people!


My name is Elizabeth and I am currently a college student attending UC Berkeley, studying History and Spanish. I love languages, good food, dancing, hiking, camping, reading, going to the beach, having good conversations with new people, going on adventures, and (naturally) traveling.


“For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you.” -Neil deGrasse Tyson

I think that sounds about right :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Since I'm currently a student living in a dormitory and sharing a room, I can't host couch surfers at this point. However, I am available occasionally to grab coffee, take a hike in the Berkeley hills, and explore with a new person! I hope to host couch surfers when I have my own place, and in the meantime stay with other hosts in my travels throughout Latin America and wherever else life may take me. :)


I´m new to CouchSurfing but excited to have a new experinece.


Music, both piano and guitar, spending time with friends, learning about people, language, and culture, taking off on camping trips, drinking good coffee, afternoon naps, good photography, good books, adrenaline rushes, stimulating people, and in general enjoying life.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Skydiving was definitely one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Jumping out of a plane high above the clouds and plunging through the air weightlessly...one of the coolest things I've ever done.
