About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To meet and greet the human race!

ABOUT ME

I've always had this feeling as if everyone, this entire human race, is connected in some way or another. Although I don't have much travel experience, I've always felt a strong desire in my soul to travel to as many places as possible and meet as many people along the way. I've felt this way ever since I was a small child, I would collect stamps from around the world and always wondered about how it must be to live in those countries. My first time flying on an airplane was this year (to Iowa in fact) and I LOVED IT! If I can appreciate traveling to that area of the United States, then I can just about imagine what the rest of the world has in store for me! I especially want to travel to India and the surrounding region eventually in my lifetime....

PHILOSOPHY

Expand your horizons, both physically and mentally....

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Although I don't have a "couch" to offer currently, I would be more than happy to meet anyone for coffee, a good chat, etc. I'm pretty laid-back, and a good listener.

Interests

I love language, which is why I'm going back to school for speech pathology. I also LOVE chocolate and food and trying new cuisines. Meditation is also another interest of mine, although I'm not as diligent as I should be. I would like to speak to "seasoned" practicioners in this area and learn from their expertise. Art, writing, psychology, spirituality, religion, mythology, environmental issues, ethnic cuisine, music, politics (sometimes), history, animals, business.
