About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Waking up in the morning, going to bed at night, and doing what I like in the middle

ABOUT ME

I love love LOVE to travel and meet new people. I am usually pretty happy and easy going. I am a bit of a geek, with a love of scifi, which inspired me to work toward a degree in Physics and Astronomy. After high school I joined the Air Force which I was a cop in for 4 years in Florida at Patrick AFB/Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, where, along with typical police/security duties, I got to watch rockets and the shuttles take off, as well as bump elbows with important people like astronauts, senators and Obama himself. While in the military, I made sure to see at least 1 country a year which included Italy, Ireland,and Afghanistan (although, that one was more of a business trip).

After four years, I decided the civilian life was more my style, and I headed off to Europe for a multi-month bike trip where I lived off my bike and got in GREAT shape. I developed a love of long distance biking and of Germany (where, due to my horrid sense of direction, I ended up for most of my trip) The trip was one of the most freeing senses of travel I have ever had, since I did no planning whatsoever, and just went where the bike path took me.

I currently live in Athens working toward my degree, and I live with my boyfriend who is not active in the CS community, but I hope to expose him to it.

PHILOSOPHY

The world may ask "why?" but I ask "why not?"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have not been very active in the CS community since I left Florida 3 years ago, but I would like to change that! We have a house that is just outside the reaches of city bus transportation, but if you have a car we are about 15 mins from city center. We have a spare bedroom, which is currently my work room, but it gives privacy. We also have a fairly comfortable couch.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have surfed in Ireland, and Italy as well as gone to CS get togethers in Switzerland, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Netherlands, and France. I was also fairly active in the Orlando CS group prior to moving to Georgia

Interests

Drinking, theatre, scifi, mountain biking, yoga, good music, good times, and any adventure I can get myself into.

Music, Movies & Books

Bob Dylan, Mumford and Sons, Norah Jones, Bright Eyes, Avett Brothers, Mountain Goats, and O.A.R. Anything with a piano or acoustic is almost automatically a good song. Movie wise, I love just about everything except scary movies or super gory movies

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Watching a shuttle launch just after sunset. Very beautiful.

My entire euro bike trip. I went over without a plan, and never planned more than a day in advance. I biked through, and stayed in villages so small they had never met people outside the local community. I saw sites that were unbearably beautiful. I lived with no responsibility and constant excitement (as well as constant leg pain from those swiss Alps!)

I also think my experience at a nudist festival in Florida is worth mentioning! I am the kind of person who will always try something (at least) once. I went with plans of meeting up with other CS'ers, but when they backed out, and I had driven over 2 hours to get there, I couldn't back out. I sat in my car for probably an hour to get the guts to get out of the car and strip. Once the clothes came off though, I realized just how easy it is to be naked with hundreds of other people. I made great friends, and was so comfortable with everyone! It was truly a great experience.
