About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoy South America!

ABOUT ME

I'm teaching English, learning Spanish and drifting my way through South America. I think I'm your average traveller...I make new friends easily, am always up for an adventure and am respectful of other people's physical and emotional space. I'm a good person. Your mom would like me.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is strange, I try to take it as it comes and sqeeze as much joy from it as I can, if I can't do that, I just grab on and try to pay attention, because surely there will be something to learn from it!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm new, but I've already met a few fellow travellers for drinks and shenanigans and it has been really great making friends with local people!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I'm new!

Interests

dance, good food, good wine, good conversation, learning other languages, scotch whisky, ice cream and the beauty of the natural world.

Music, Movies & Books

Too many to mention! I love science fiction films, mostly because of the futuristic themes, stuff blowing up and robots. (What's not to like?) I have always had a passion for reading, but my tastes vary a lot. From the top of my head, some books I like include: Slaughterhouse 5, Blindness, Ishmael, The Golden Compass, Lamb, The Martian Chronicles, Dandelion Wine, The Expats, I could go on and on. My musical tastes are just as varied!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've been skydiving over the Swiss Alps...it was one of those things that was exactly as amazing as it sounds. :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I have danced Arabic dance for about 4 years. I sometimes perform in exchange for dinner and tips, or around a campfire just for fun. I'm always happy to teach what I know!

Countries I've Visited

Canada, Costa Rica, France, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In

Chile, United States
