About Me

CURRENT MISSION

living the dream

ABOUT ME

currently living in Gernika, Spain teaching English at a coastal language school! :) thinking about what to do next. i'm looking to travel around a bit whenever i get the chance, and think couchsurfing is a great way to do it to meet local people and make new friends!

PHILOSOPHY

be interesting - if you can't be interesting at least be nice - if you can't be nice, at least bring food

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We've had positive experiences couch surfing and enjoy experiencing the world through the eyes of its locals. Some places like Tokyo we would have failed miserably without someone to give us all the insider info! We like getting involved and getting to know some of the more fascinating people on this planet, however don't mind being left to our own devices either if people are busy saving the world/working a day job.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

had a really great time couchsurfing one week in tokyo - a super overwhelming city made so much nicer by our generous hosts! couchsurfed in paris over new years this year with shikhar who was super helpful and friendly, unfortunately only for a short amount of time but a good time :)

Interests

Languages (german, french, spanish ), music (guitar, saxophone, melodica, harmonica, kazoo), experimental cooking, travel!

Music, Movies & Books

animated films (ghibli studio, miyazaki, jan svankmajer, yuri norstein, sylvain chomet), wes anderson, michel gondry, pedro almodovar, woody allen

One Amazing Thing I've Done

saw a giant golden buddha, played pachinko!, flown a plane, Survived a night lost in the waitakere ranges, saw a double rainbow, made an amazing blue berry milk shake the other night

Teach, Learn, Share

we'll teach you everything we know! and more things we don't! we'll just make it up, it'll be great. i think as long as people are talking to each other and listening they will always learn something new
