Join Couchsurfing to see Kaylin’s full profile. It’s free!
I am a 27 year old female from Alabama, USA.
I have previously taught English in South Korea (Busan), France (Dieppe), and in Hong Kong. I have also been an au pair in New Zealand (North Island). Additionally, I have traveled to England , Scotland, Wales, Italy, Germany, Netherlands, Japan, Thailand, Cambodia, Australia, Fiji, Macau, Vietnam, Malaysia, China, Philippines, and Canada.
My bachelor's is in Anthropology, (war eagle!) but I would one day like to go to graduate school for International Relations/Development.
Basically, I try to live my life to the fullest and I believe that everyone should be able to do basically whatever they want as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else.
I'm pro-choice, anti-organized religion, and LGBT friendly. I also support healthcare for all.

Music, Movies, and Books
I love fantasy and sci-fi, doesn't matter if books/movies/tv shows. I will probably watch/read it.
Books: Harry Potter (been a fan since I was 12), any sort of travel books, Shakespeare, Edgar Allen Poe, the Hunger Games trilogy, A Song of Ice and Fire series, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, just started reading the Outlander series, Zombie Survival Guide
Movies: The Breakfast Club, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings trilogy, Terminator and T2, Ghostbusters, 28 Days Later, Zombieland, Shaun of the Dead, Marvel Cinematic Universe (Thor, Captain America, Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, etc).
TV: Doctor Who, Supernatural, Firefly, Buffy, Gotham, Sleepy Hollow, Game of Thrones, The Strain, and my absolute favorite right now is The Walking Dead.
Music: Almost anything! I'm very open-minded and there's little I won't at least try out and give a listen to. I do have a soft spot for 90s pop music!
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Too many to name just one!!
Angkor complex in Cambodia. SO. FREAKING. COOL. I felt very Lara Croft exploring all the temples.
Climbing the stairs at the Eiffel Tower. 30 stories! My friend Marie and I were champs that day!
Going to the border between North and South Korea (the DMZ) and seeing the North Korean soldiers staring at us from across the line.
Visiting Pompeii and standing in the shadow of Mt Vesuvius in Italy. It has been a dream of mine since I first learned about it in history class years and years ago and I finally made it a reality in 2013.
Hiking through the jungle for several hours to reach Hang En, the third biggest cave in the world, in Phong Nha National Park, Vietnam.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you how to do some swing dance, salsa and merengue moves. I'd love if you taught me some words if your native language is something other than English.
What I Can Share with Hosts
My witty personality and where to find the best Mexican food in HK. Also all the useless trivia knowledge floating around in my head that will one day make me a Jeopardy champion (I'm convinced I'll be on that show one day).
