Exploration and new experience
I am currently a flight attendant, based in LA. I have lived in Spain, and recently returned from 18 months living and teaching ESL in Shanghai, China. Most of all I'm an easy-going person, up for trying anything new, because what's life without a little adventure? I'm always down to do/try anything, especially new foods! I crave the outdoors, and a good conversation. When I meet new people, I love to hear their opinions about the world and their own personal experiences in life and travels. I'm not good at writing long descriptions of myself, but I think that about sums it up. I hope to get to meet you!
I'll just put some favorite quotes here that fit my personal philosophy perfectly:
"Expect nothing, live frugally on surprise."
- Alice Walker
"Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently."
- Henry Ford
"The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails."
- William Arthur Wardenry Ford
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have traveled a lot outside of the US, but have not given enough appreciation to my own country. So I am hoping to take some time this year and discover more of the land right under my own nose!
I have never hosted or stayed with anyone, but I have met up with people on several occasions. I lived in Spain for a year, and I would show people around the city. I also met with people in my home town of Atlanta, Georgia. I haven't been active for over a year, but I'm excited to be back in action.
Music: mostly Indie, depends on my mood...play a little guitar, still learning
Books: love to read, usually have a book by my side
Active: love dancing (mostly salsa), love the outdoors (camping, hiking, kayak, rafting, etc.)
Travels: the best way to get to know a city is to get lost in it
Languages: fluent in English and Spanish, studying chinese, about to start Arabic...interested in cramming as many language into my brain as I can fit!
