Save the world with art! Be spontaneous and travel lots
**I'M TAKING A BREAK FROM HOSTING FOR MARCH 2014 but I'm happy to recommend some hosts in Van. Thx
I have a small loveseat again and limited floor space but I'm happy to host 1-2 people @ a time.
I'm a registered nurse/ kinesiologist / artist who is from Ottawa. I love meeting new people from all walks of life and have a curiosity for culture. I can say that I have "itchy feet", no I don't have foot fungus... I just have a great desire to experience new surroundings and be spontaneous. I find that being in different environments inspires me as an artist and person. I'm creative, generous, friendly, accepting and fun-loving.
live. love. be compassionate and artful. I strive to understand how someone else's surroundings/experiences shape them.

Teach, Learn, Share
