Join Couchsurfing to see Julia’s full profile. It’s free!
To see the world, meet interesting people and make the world a better place.
I currently reside in Vermont, USA. My main endeavor is my consulting business, which helps young people plan a gap year before or during college. I also love to mountain bike, hike, snowboard, enjoy the outdoors and keep chickens!
In 2010, my husband Tom and I embarked on a 10-month, round-the-world trip. We visited 13 countries with fascinating cultures and met interesting people along the way. We are an out-going, friendly and courteous couple that will be thrilled to stay with new friends and learn about their country.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
We hope to strengthen ties between couchsurfers and hosts by being fun, respectful guests. We also look forward to cultural exchange that comes from being current surfers and future hosts.
I have couchsurfed in New Zealand but have met couchsurfers in Turkey and have kept in touch.
Hiking, photography, being outside, writing, traveling, learning about new cultures, eating and enjoying food and drink
We are also very interested in politics, music and society and love talking late into the night with thoughtful people.
We are passionate about the slow food and localvore movements. We love visiting markets - both craft and food. They really give you a sense of place!
Julia is currently authoring a book about weddings around the world and would love to talk to people about this celebration in their country.
