About Me


To be the best me


My name is Lara, pronounced La-duh for all the tongue twister-challenged out there. Sometimes I introduce myself as Lar-ruh, but in my experience, people get lazy and start to call me Laura instead, which is not my name. Anywho, I'm just a girl looking to travel the world and make light of it. I won't bore you with all the details, but Couchsurfing has definitely been a great friend in all this. So thanks!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've been on the surfing end mostly since I joined in 2009, but I'm really hoping to settle down into a place of my own someday soon and never tire of hosting and learning from traveling CSers passing through.


Three great experiences as a surfer in Amsterdam, Padova and Buenos Aires, and a very cold but memorable Berlin Beach Camp adventure.

Music, Movies, and Books

Yes, yes and yes!!!! Some stick out more than others, but I won't name any favorites because all of them have brought something new to the table, if only the realization of what I do and don't like.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I saw Fall for the first time with my sister as a 'New England leaf-peeper' last October. It convinced me that I might be able to brave a winter, somewhere outside the tropics, so that I may savor every last drop of Fall.
