About Me


to discover what it really means to be human


friends say I'm
"always smiling"
"easy to talk to"
"super smart"


Treat others the way you would like to be treated.

If you don't know both sides to anything, then you don't really know about it at all.

Think about the thing that's bothering you. If it won't affect your life ten years from now, it's not worth lingering over.

Don't panic.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


If you want a buddy for exploring, eating, or just to grab a beer at a pub, I'm your gal! :)


Had a great time couchsurfing in China with amazing hosts and guides who really showed me a real side of China. :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hiking the Great Wall and having it practically all to myself. Eating sheep's eye (among other things) in Mongolia. Travelling the Gobi Desert for 7 days, climbing the incredible sand dunes, and watching the gorgeous and unspoiled stars in the nightsky.

More to come....

Teach, Learn, Share

I don't have a lot of skill, but if you like I can teach you how to write your name in Korean Hangul or Japanese Kana. :)
