I've recently become a wifey and a homeowner. Although my husband has never tried Couchsurfing himself, he is intrigued by my stories and willing to participate! We both love meeting new people and swapping stories. We do a lot of biking and enjoy trying fancy beers.
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, reading, writing, teaching, adventuring, yoga, filling my house with more houseplants
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
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!

Stories, laughs, a comfortable place to lay your head and clean up, french press or Chemex coffee
