Join Couchsurfing to see Kelly’s full profile.
Hi, I'm Kelly! I have had great experiences with couchsurfing over a period of many years and several countries. I'm introverted, but I also crave rich connections with fascinating people. Couchsurfing has added a lot of flavor to my travels, and hosting has been a great way to get some travel vibes while I'm stationary.
January 2019 update:
*****I only host solo travelers... I think that it's a bigger help for them, and it's more fun for me. I couchsurf to connect, not to save money, and prefer to host travelers that feel the same way. I also prefer to host people who have references as hosts.***** I don't respond to group requests for hosting. Happy to meet up though if y'all are just looking for someone to hang out with.
This is my third year in Monterey, after moving here for grad school (environmental policy) and then becoming employed here afterwards. I rent a one bedroom apartment outside of downtown.
Hosting in Monterey: I tend to get bombarded with requests. I don't always send back a message if I can't host you, but I'll click "decline" so that you know. Sorry- It doesn't mean that you're not an amazing person worthy of being hosted.
My space is small, but very clean. Privacy is a bit limited, but the bedroom and living room are separate, and the couch folds out into a bed. I would enjoy showing you a hiking spot and sharing some meals and drinks. As a couchsurfing guest, I am very generous and like to treat my hosts to a meal. I don't expect that as a host, but I also don't really want to go out with you and spend a bunch of money.

Music, Movies, and Books
movies: Dead Man, Royal Tenenbaums, Big Lebowski, A Scanner Darkly, Stanley Kubrick films. I like sci-fi, and I like old movies, and I love watching a good film with someone.
Teach, Learn, Share
Always happy to teach yin yoga, meditation, guitar, English, vegetarian cooking, and whatever else I might know that you'd like to learn about. I think that I have a unique outlook and way of living, and I like to share that with other interesting people, and learn from them as well.
