** I have been traveling solo for over 6 years now, basically non-stop.** But was an English teacher in Taipei, Taiwan for the past 6 months & now I plan to travel Japan for the summer *about 2 months*
Have learnt so much and there is so many ups and downs. Now as I am arriving in my mid 20s I party less because cultural exchange and new places is enough excitment and reward for me. I want to focus on my health, fitness, and find some more balance and stability while traveling now. Still up for funky underground warehouse parties and drinking craft brew or homebrew beer though dont get me wrong. Excited to meet you all!! I used to help run weekly meetings in Zurich, Swizterland when i first started traveling and have been an active CS member since 2011, meeting a lot of people who work for the company or are very ingrained. I can show you the ways..? ** Make your own path and walk steady to find balance. :)

Alan Watts is my god..! I love also this book 700 days in El salvador with an australian journalist living and working with some rural poor village people during and after the us funded death squad war that was so horrifying .. still today now there is more less visible and therefor more dangerous gangs running around the area.. I had to go there a month to see it myself so this book moves me.
Rabbit proof fence is a great moving sad movie about the stolen generation of aboriginals in Australia.
