PHOTOS NOW UNDER COUCH DESCRIPTION
Something to note: I am very "directionally impaired". I can get lost ten minutes from my own house, so if I show up a little late that is why. sorry.
I love music, arts, crafts, plants and animals, hula hooping, dancing, talking, learning, teaching, having fun, and dressing up like a bumblebee. I ve met through this site.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I am happy to build "couch karma" with everyone, even though nobody wanted to stay in my hometown of Langley, BC.
Living in Berlin allowed me to host a lot, and attend meetings. I became a nomadic ambassador on the road too :)
When I am traveling, I am rarely a one-night surfer. I like to get to know people, but if you are busy I can also entertain myself :)
I do dishes if they are not in my own house, and I sleep like the dead so you won't wake me up if I'm in the living room.
I like being involved with meetings also! If you like to attend cs meetings in your area I am usually happy to come along!

Traveling seems like the most obvious one so far.
I'm interested in sustainable living, going to the pub, ideas, conversation, getting creative, and being very silly.
I live to learn, so whatever you teach me - no matter how useless it may seem at the time to you - might come in handy.

Music, Movies, and Books
This would take ages to type out fully...
I LOVE watching Planet Earth, but my DVD collection ranges from Kubric to Tarantino to B Horror movies (<3 Bruce Campbell) to Monty Python to kid's movies (Dark Crystal, the Neverending Story etc) to Documentaries to Fear and Loathing to Tim Burton... a wide variety...
Books also range hugely. I'll read pretty much anything - fiction, nonfiction, "inspirational" (ie the Alchemist), tragic, sci fi, classic, fantasy, sometimes I will even read the instruction manuals for things.
Music may be the most varied of all, although I tend to stay far far away from bad country or bad pop.
Breaks, DnB, Dubstep, rock, indie, folky, classic rock, reggae, alternative, hip hop, classic country, oldies, + all others I can't assign genres all get honorable mentions...
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Thats hard to think of on the spot... "Amazing" is relative, no?
Teach, Learn, Share
I enjoy using my hands, so I can supply some skillz:
crochet (with anything yarn or cotton)
hula hoop making and basic moves
health and massage tips
I'd like to learn how to better use my SLR, and some fancy sewing moves if anyone's got 'em! I also like learning about plants, nutrition, and alternative healing.
