About Me


improve building skills, and improve felting skills!


i don't know everything about myself. but here is a bit i do know, i'm kara and i'm not sure where i'm going but i really love where i am. i've been out of canada since april 2010, and intend to continue moving. i am embracing a freedom i have always dreamt of and it is bitter sweet in the most beautiful ways. since 2013 i have been working as a massage therapist i'm most interested in all kinds of people. i am easy to talk to, love to talk, and relax. i love to cycle! I have a good sense of humour and appreciate others. did i mention im half-blood scrappy ass rowdy muthafucka? Well I am.


everything is a cycle, you've got to let it come to you
and when it does you will know what to do.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


i surf, host and meet with people and share what i have and can.


i've surfed, hosted, met for drinks, and attended meetings - each experience is different and special.


listening and talking, the art of not giving a fuck, laughing, meditation, massage, nature, hiking, natural healing, sewing, wool working, photography, painting/illustraton, history, philosophy, music/live music, crafts, water, minimalism, listening to stories, new friends and strangers that feel like old friends, poi, warm hearts, free education- you know the kind that you learn by doing and experiencing? yeah that kind.

I love potatoes and eggs. That is extremely important to know.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

see my dogs' smile, traveled the road from a strangers passenger seat, lived with nomad families in Mongolia, practiced a depth to massage therapy that most people do not even know of.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am willing and wanting to learn anything that you can teach!
I am happy to teach anything to do with felting, and I am also happy to learn to do anything with felting. I can teach one how to travel long term.
