But for now we are young, let us lay in the sun and count every beautiful thing we can see...
I'm back in Iowa City teaching ESL after a year of training teachers in the Philippines. I love meeting new people and welcoming them to Iowa City.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've surfed in Russia and Mongolia...it's by far the best way to travel. Since I've been back to Iowa, I've been a host several times. I never thought anyone would be surfing in Iowa, so I'm always very happy to host here!
Couchsurfed in Mongolia and Russia while taking the Trans-Mongolian Railway...greatest travel experiences of my life! I love to share and swap travel stories with fellow couchsurfers.
people, languages, biking, mountains, good conversation, writing, adventuring, yoga
Music, Movies, and Books
movies: eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, science of sleep, across the universe, big fish, the prestige
music: mewithoutyou, folk and mellow-ish music, also i can't deny my love for carly rae jepsen.
books: the little prince, c.s. lewis, twain, dickens, the kite runner, half the sky
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
slept in a ger in Mongolia with a nomadic family...spent 4 straight days on a train going across Siberia....climbed the Great Wall in the peak of summer and winter....immersed myself in Korean culture for 2 years as an English teacher....biked across Iowa (500 ish miles) in one week on RABGRAI...and many more!
