Join Couchsurfing to see Emily’s full profile. It’s free!
Short, chatty, trying to find some sense of truth while traveling.
I make books for children for a living- so I'm always interested in learning more about books, art, architecture, history, film, fungi networks, ideas!
Living in London, but grew up in Hawaii- so stereotypically laid back, will take shoes off inside the house :-)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I enjoy travelling alone, but sometimes come back fanatical about whatever readings I've taken as a companion. Want to keep my mind open and external rather than flipped in. Would be great to make new friendships, and have a better understanding of a place through the people I meet.
Like to think I'm a pretty relaxed guest-- I can keep myself occupied most of the time, but would be down to watch films, wash dishes, cook together- I make a good sous chef!
Music, Movies, and Books
For books I really like classics - especially Steinbeck, Kafka, Orwell, Greene, Tolstoy, Hesse, Hardy, Zola :-)
All over the place with music- I go from Jimmy Cliff to Talking Heads to Beatles to Joy Division, I'm very open
Not into too much sap, I like teary movies and dramas, but will be super glad to sit and watch a documentary or cooking TV programme with you-- also been guiltily watching Say Yes to the Dress ;-)
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can cook okay - I'd give myself a C+ , I can tell a good story though!
Countries I’ve Visited
Austria, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Scotland, Spain, Switzerland, Ukraine
