About Me

I have just arrived in Montreal, where I will finally stay for a while!

I've been travelling a lot lately, this recent trip with another CSer Jesse Houle. We explored the US, Mexico, Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, and Uruguay, and Chile, using no money for a portion of the trip which gave us a new perspective on things. I learned about different cultures, language, farming, and food! Before that I was on a solo trip where I explored Canada and the states in my camperized van.

I like to work on organic farms and would like to start a small garden this summer on my little Montreal balcony (balcony TBD).

Sometimes I pet cats (www.jesspetscats.com) and write stuff (www.jesswritesblog.wordpress.com).

I am vegetarian - people ask this a lot so I thought I'd add it here. :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Sometimes I crash on people's couches, sometimes I let them crash on mine, and usually I follow other couchsurfers on spontaneous adventures. This site has lead me to experience lots of new perspectives, amazing stories, and crazy good times. It's also been a reminder of just how wonderful and generous the world can be if you open yourself to it.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like most kinds of music, especially live, but usually listen to indie/rock/alternative/folk.

The novels I read tend to involve unusual relationships. For non-fiction I collect books on polyamory and food but never end up reading them. If I'm reading online it's mostly random useless things. If I'm reading the newspaper it's probably the horoscope - totally legit.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Having the beaches of Ios to ourselves, hanging out with wild cats, and being the start of a spontaneous party when we thought we were the only visitors on the island.

Teach, Learn, Share

Want to play ukulele with me? I'm trying to be less shy with it. I'm also working on my French and Spanish.

I'm happy to share anything you want to know about Vancouver, or any of North or South America really.

I love talking about why we're here and what we're doing with it. I like discussing different perspectives on the world.

Did you know you can reuse leftover pickle juice to pickle other things you have lying around? If you don't drink it first, that is.
