About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Find a couch, ride with joy, enjoy the exchanges

ABOUT ME

I'm traveling at the moment with no real plans and an expectation that things will just work out and I'll end up going where I need to go. It's an exciting part of the journey and I'm so happy to be here. I like meeting new people, having new experiences, seeing beautiful places, and watching the world do it's thing. I'm vegetarian and a vegetable couch would be a real score but I have friends who eat meat too and I'm cool to meet more. I'm a chilled out and independent girl.

PHILOSOPHY

I love my planet. Look around at how incredible everything is and how much life has evolved! I am really excited to see how things continue to change and I have faith that we will eventually move closer to peace and unity. All of the things that divide us as people seem so trivial. I live to observe and learn, not forgetting to get saturated in life experiences along the way. We are constantly surrounded by amazing feats, which I think we should live in awe and respect of. Sometimes we forget, but it's easy to open our eyes and remind ourselves.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I spent 4 1/2 months traveling around India and Nepal have seen and done some amazing things. Spending three weeks trekking through the Himalaya was pretty incredible, as was a week spent camel trekking through the desert and sleeping under the night sky, visiting the biggest Sikh pilgrimage sight in the world, and seeing some cool and exotic creatures along the way. Amazing things to be seen in the mundane as well though!
