Find a steady paying job, save up, & travel to my heart's/pocket's content (preferably w/ a companion) ** already achieved :) so my current mission is to better understand my place in the world
I'm a young/old lady thriving in nothing but love, who wants to be well traveled, well-versed, and have given all I can offer to this world before I rest my eyes for an eternal slumber. I believe that what you give is what you receive, so I'm all for sharing and loving and spreading good energy :)

Be you. Be true. Be happy.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Open to hosting/meeting up any CSs in my area when possible! Also, I was hosted by several people in Europe, and I hosted when I lived in Oregon.
My first experience was with a couch surfer & roommate (couch surfer host). I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and hope to host or travel in the beginning of 2012.
*currently traveling, after a year long stay aboard a cruise ship traveling
**did a Eurotrip by rail, and visited 7 countries in a little over 2 weeks. Had wonderful experiences meeting different cultures and sharing stories/drinks alongside my then partner.
***uprooted from Portland due to just a changing life! I live in Norcal now! Let's explore!!
****traveling via cruise ship in the Caribbean & Mediterranean
I can say that I very much enjoy tea :) and cooking, reading in parks, practicing yoga, and dancing!!! I also like to try new beers/wines with different cuisines. And listening to live music, especially in unexpected places.
Music, Movies, and Books
Finished and loved Stieg Larsson's series, after watching the Swedish films. My favorite book of all time though must be "The Giving Tree". I also enjoyed reading Jack Kerouac's "On The Road" (haven't finished) and "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" by Stephen Chbowsky. I very much enjoy Paolo Coehlo.. his words seem to come into my life at the right moment. And I've been getting into Wayne Dyer and Eckhart Tolle lately. Brilliant!
Any Tarantino's or Woody Allen's films are great. I really like watching documentaries (and mockumentaries!) as well.
I feel I have a varied taste in music, which probably is reflected by my mood at the time. But I can always listen to White Denim, Chet Faker, and Nina Simone on repeat.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Meeting new people & gaining new experiences define the "amazing things I've done/seen". I don't feel like any moment is wasted.. Life's experiences are all of value.
Over my travels, I've enjoyed improving/jamming with musicians/dancers in Ghana, dancing for very appreciative crowds in Mexico, and going to the Top of Europe!
Teach, Learn, Share
I am open to learning anything and everything the world has to offer me in this lifetime. Anything physical or dealing with observational tasks are entertaining for me. And I can try to teach you some dance moves, maybe? And some yoga/pilates. But I can definitely share in cooking a meal! Or lets bargain shop!
