Wants to Meet Up

Join Couchsurfing to see Laurel’s full profile. It’s free!
To live freely and find out how I can help others live freely. I feel privileged to be able to move about the US and world, and hope someday everyone has that freedom. I also hope to meet many people along the way to learn their truths.
curious, silly, adventurous, spontaneous, caring, questioning, trying to stay optimistic
I want to find a way to live in complete freedom so that I can both do what I want to do and also allow those around me the confidence and space to do what they would like to do. I'm still working on my personal philosophy though...
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
So far I've only surfed on couches/floors/beds. Someday when I "settle" somewhere I'll open up my home to others in return. I've hosted a bit through my roommate's acct when I lived in Oakland, CA.
Spent my first night in Colombia couchsurfing and was hooked ever since.
I enjoy interacting with people, observing people, being with people to the fullest extent, but then I also enjoy having time to myself to reflect, read, relax...
live music with a beat, hidden and unassuming coffeeshops and bookstores, mountains, swimming holes, bike rides to quirky little spots in cities or to epic mtn/ocean/lake vistas
Music, Movies, and Books
Give me some George Saunders short stories and I'll laugh and cry to them. Give me some Tom Robbins and I won't put the book down until it's done.
Live music I can jump around to
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Rafted in the Alaskan wilderness and nearly killed my sister when I steered us into an unbeknownst to me rapid
Teach, Learn, Share
Love to cook with/for hosts. I also weirdly love helping people with their resumés. I'm from the US...Ask me about it, but don't expect I have the right answer to how we ended up electing our next president.
