I want to meet people from all over and never stop learning.
In April 2012 I hopped on a one-way flight from San Francisco to Bangkok without any idea of what I was going to do when I landed, or how long I'd be traveling for (I may or may not have purchased the flight while I was drunk...), and have been spending the subsequent months trying to figure those parts out. Currently on the ensuing adventure; I've got some pretty good stories on the way to right now. Never expected to still be traveling at this point, but 4 months in to it I ended up getting an online job I can do from anywhere, so here I am...
I'm pretty much always having a good time, it's almost impossible to stress me out, I'm always trying to learn more, and I don't take life very seriously. I like saying yes and I'll try anything twice. I have pretty varied interests but basically like things that are exciting, interesting, provoking, and new.
For more about me and my trip, you can find my travel blog at http://lauriewashere.com/ if you fancy a look :)
Life is too important to be taken seriously
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I go to meetups a lot when I live in or visit a city, such a great way to meet interesting people. Some lovely surfing in Asia.

Good at finding jobs for people, editing your resume/CV, explaining weird American politics, social media whatever, skipping rocks, and making absolutely delicious bloody marys when you're hungover.
