About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Spend more time exploring Canada.

ABOUT ME

I'm easy going, optimistic and have a healthy sense of humour. I tend to see the best in situations and in people.

I love fully immersing myself in different cultures. In my ideal world, I'd travel to a new place and stay there for at least a few months!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've done a fair amount of couchsurfing in the summer of 2012 while backpacking through Europe after a semester in Sweden. Lately I haven't been too involved in the local CS community but I've been to a few events in Vancouver. Currently in Edmonton for grad school.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Amazing! I have been met with unbelievable hospitality everywhere I've been, and have made great friends along the way.

Interests

Experiencing new places like a local, being spontaneous and enjoying the simple things.

Meeting people from all over the world and learning about different cultures and ways of thought.

I love being out in the nature, hiking or whatever. I paint and sketch every now and then. I like playing sports / trying new sports.
