About Me

CURRENT MISSION

basically my mission is to just see the world and try to understand the way we all live. I want to find what makes everyone happy, bc it changes everywhere you go and i love that

ABOUT ME

The first time I lived abroad was right after I graduated College and I moved to teach Kindergarten in Cairo, Egypt for five months. It was the most intense time of my life but I have never learned so much about myself, life, culture, EVERYTHING. Now all I want to do is explore the world bc I really don't think I can feel educated or alive if I just stay in my country. And the weirder the country, the better!

PHILOSOPHY

Right now I am living life to make sure I do everything I want. I'm tired of thinking that I want to do something, instead I am just going to do it. I'm also living for happiness, if something doesn't' provide me with happiness then I don't want to do it, but at the same time I look for happiness in everything. I'm exploring the world to help explore myself.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have had the best couchsuring experiences and I can't wait until I can host people as well...I'm sort of in a transition stage right now moving back to the states but as soon as I get a good couch I can't wait to return the favor!!!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've couchsurfed in Spain, Portugal, and France and every time was amazing! I stayed in a hostel one night and hated it because I didn't meet anyone from the area and didn't feel like I was really seeing the culture. I will always choose couchsurfing when I can because it's amazing the people you meet. Thank you to everyone who has hosted me and to all the people I have met through couchsurfing meetings!

Interests

I am very interested in food, yoga, holistic healing, reading, and pastries. I love long walks.

Music, Movies & Books

I'm a big reader, I love novels and memoirs. I'm currently reading Thomas Pynchon and he is very interesting to get into.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The Pyramids, just touching something so historic, old, and famous was incredible. I could never get over it no matter how many times I saw them

Teach, Learn, Share

I am happy to teach yoga or cooking lessons and to just talk about life and experiences.

What I Can Share With Hosts

Dinner and yoga!
