Join Couchsurfing to see Emily Rae’s full profile. It’s free!
Learning things, finding new places and meeting new people all along the way.
I love to travel, explore new cultures, languages, cuisine, art, history, etc. I play the ukelele and a bit of guitar, as well as sing. I can cook a good meal and plant a good garden.
Live life with joy, lots of music and good food!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING:
Surfing around the world and hosting when I can!
I'd rather Couchsurf and meet strangers than stay in a hotel by myself, 100%! You get to experience a different side of the local culture, more than what tourists get to see. I have many long-lasting friendships around the world that have come from Couchsurfing and hosting.
I love poetry, reading, music, food, cooking, gardening, exploring, hiking, Capoeira, rock climbing, swimming and basically everything outdoors. One of my passions is sustainable agriculture and the teachings of Michael Pollan. I am a Christian - I'm not really for religions and organizations, but for justice, grace and Jesus! I run a Christian Travel Blog called The Christian Backpacker - www.thechristianbackpacker.com
