About Me


Delay adulthood as long as possible. Explore the world. Don't settle for a 9 to 5


I am a 21 year old, 6 feet (1.8 m) female who is trying to become a person who loves adventures. I get intimidated easily by adventures, but every time I embark on one, I realize how much I love it. I love to learn and speak new languages, and am open to new cultures and world views.


Live simply, so that others may simply live. And, to borrow from Hallmark,, dance like nobody's watching

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love politics, but I'm a complete hypocrite and didn't make time to vote last midterm elections. A mistake I'm never making again!


I'm a brand new member of couchsurfing, but I've had so many people tell me what an awesome experience it is. Since I've recently moved to Barcelona, I thought, why not now? What a perfect time to join CS!


Linguistics, rugby, outdoors, indoors, great coffee, horrible dancing, laughing until i get stomach cramps, respect, human rights

Music, Movies, and Books

Johnathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. I recommend Roald Dahl to all my english students. Nothing too classic, except I did love the Odyssey.
