Travelling Central Asia - Nepal, Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos.
Enjoy small town life in beautiful places with really special people. Hike, bike and run through breathtaking landscapes with vibrant autumn colors. Eat delicious local food and cook new innovative dishes. Volunteer on a project with a real impact in a place where my help is really needed.
I just finished a project with Change Heroes to help fund houses in Latin America for people living in slums and now it's time to travel again!
I like to smile and laugh often and make others laugh even more with dead pan sense of humour :-D
I live for creativity in any form of expression whether it may be in conversation, music, dance, cooking or improv. I'm a social entrepreneur taking break to travel and find some more external creative influences for my next projects. At home I like to try new things such as acting, international cooking, startup work, simple guitar songwriting and volunteering with kids!
I really enjoy outdoor travel adventures with hikes and beautiful photography, but also like finding cool local spots like unique neighborhoods, cafes or anything that can easily be turned into a memorable+laughable experience :-).
I want to volunteer during my next travels to give back more across the world and experience travel in an even more meaningful way.
I can't wait to host you, surf your couch or just hang out at a cafe or on a mountain top!! :-)
Make deep connections, Be open-minded, Dance freely, Make music, Live actively, eat healthy and local, Discover incredible Places with amazing people, Avoid rushing through life!
