About Me


Find the best mojito in the world


I'm an easy going girl who's been all over the United States, and just starting to discover the rest of the world.
I'm living in the Netherlands on the coast and doing what I love which is taking care of kids.
I love to dance and sing, sometimes get crazy, and explore. Oh and karaoke = amazingness.
I enjoy good food, good wine, good friends, and good times. I LOVE meeting new people and making connections.
Apparently I have a fierce dancing face. Although I think it's more blue steel. I do it when I'm not thinking about it and then it gets captured on camera.
I'm writing a blog about my travels, and hopefully YOU can be a part of it!!! Check it out! http://5371milesaway.blogspot.com/

"I want to hang a map of the world in my house then I’m gonna put pins into all the locations that I’ve traveled to. But first I’m gonna have to travel to the top two corners of the map so it won’t fall down." -Mitch Hedburg

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


As an aupair, I don't make enough to visit all the countries in Europe without the help of fellow couch surfers. Which is just a great excuse to meet new people! Although I can't currently offer my own couch, come and explore Holland with me! I'd love some travel buddies!
So far I've surfed in:
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Rotterdam, The Netherlands (CS Weekend event)
Vienna, Austria
Davos, Switzerland
Brussels, Belgium (CS event)

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Princess Bride, Little Mermaid, Singing in the Rain, High Fidelity, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Shawn of the Dead, Eastern Promises, American History X, Godfather I & II
It's not a movie, but it should be noted that Arrested Development is possibly the greatest form of long form improv ever. I'm in love with almost all forms of tv and have watched several old school shows from start to finish. Tivo is dangerous.

Music: I like most stuff from classic rock, to musicals, to comedy tracks, to a good jazz singer (Etta James being my favorite) But if you put on Lady Gaga, I will probably love you forever, and I ask you not to judge me on that fact.

Books: Princess Bride, Great Gatsby, Thank You for Smoking, Shopaholc Series, The Five People You Meet in Heaven, Trashy Romance novels that I read on vacation so the people staring at me will never see me again

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In 2002, I ran with the Olympic Torch for the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics.
Once I wrote a rap about being a bear...it's pretty amazing and I'll sing it for you if you're real nice and maybe buy me a beer.

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Bahamas, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Mexico, Spain, Switzerland, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In

Netherlands, United States
