Join Couchsurfing to see Rachel’s full profile. It’s free!
I'm a happy-go-lucky, warm hearted, open minded individual who places a premium on friendship, learning, honesty, creativity, exploring, and optimism.
Wise words I live by from some of my favorite all-time greats:
"Life itself is the proper binge." Julia Childs
"A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved." Kurt Vonnegut
"I've got ants in my pants and I need to dance." James Brown
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I am a newbie to couch surfing, although I have informally crashed on many a couch in my past.
Memory, books, food, smell, culture, imagination, coffee, riding bicycles, storytelling, surprises, language, small wonders, public transport, old friends
