I'm a very nice, friendly person. A bit of a social recluse but I'd enjoy showing you around my hometown or even just meeting to hangout. I'm currently couch surfing in Germany with my mother. We really love to travel together. I love all animals but I have a cat and dog so if you are traveling with pets they must be well-behaved and get along with my fur-babies. I have no children, but I think I manage a full life while I'm getting things figured out.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I was traveling through Canada and there was a woman struggling with a man, practically on the sidewalk, but in the entrance to an alley. I was shocked and stunned that he was trying to undress her so after my initial thoughts about 'what's wrong with everyone on this street for not helping' I concluded that I was there for a reason and this honest Alaskan must do something!! I ran up and kicked him as hard as I could, knocking him to the ground. She ran one direction and I the other so even though it was terrifying, I am very proud of myself for being a good person and able to stop a crime simply because I was traveling in the right place at the right time!!!!
Teach, Learn, Share
I am learning German because I was born there, have lots of German in me, and my mother has lived there for about 7 years. This prompted further exploration of Europe and I'm happy to say I've been to Paris and all over Germany and the 'lower 48' United States.
