About Me

CURRENT MISSION

see more of my own country before i head out across the ocean again:)

ABOUT ME

I have always loved running around exploring natural environments, learning about the creatures of the earth and their connections to each other and the worlds they live in. My boyfriend and i are building a farm together in west central alberta and already have a bunch of cows, a dog and a cat. We'll have some chickens, bees, horses and a milking cow soon. I love spending time outside doing whatever, wherever, especially if it involves water or hiking up to some insanely beautiful, secret views:)

I love to meet new people, especially in very random situations hehe I especially love collecting recommendations for local eats and activities from the locals wherever i go:)

I want to continue to travel as much as I can when I can until I can't anymore :P I also want to continue my PADI dive training around the world - next: diving the Seychelles and mafia island (hopefully!)

PHILOSOPHY

"there is no road to peace, peace is the road." -Ghanditry to live like you are halfway to heaven everyday. if you suddenly feel like this without even trying then consider yourself incredibly lucky, and live in itsometimes the hardest thing is the right thing

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I live in West-Central Alberta on a farm with my boyfriend, our dog, cat, and the cattle.. I would love to show you around the west country... places i know and explore new places with you!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

i have slept on so many friend's and peoples couches while in university! Sometimes I even slept IN the university.. heheit is quite humbling when you are offered a couch on a night you didn't have place to call your own. :)However, I must say that my CS hosts so far have been the major reasons why I enjoyed my vacations so much. I never really ever felt alone, and yet i was travelling for much of it alone. But CS people are a different kind of people I think:) xo

Interests

in the summer I love to go swimming in lakes, the ocean (day-long drive now).. go camping, biking. riding, go on road trips to visit family and friends Canada. go to outdoor music festivals.

i love food. mm food! especially spicy varieties

i love love love to dance and even though I am not fluent in Spanish, I think it is the most beautiful language in the world and absolutely love Spanish music.

and cant forget the animals. mammals, birds, fish, i love em. k i'll stop now.

i love to volunteer. some of the most exciting and memorable experiences happened while volunteering:)

Music, Movies & Books

live concerts, especially if they're outside. Just about every kind of music except intense, angry metal.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

hiking 19km of fishermens' trails along the cliffs in the Algarves, Portugal and finding the fishermen perched on the craziest of ledges, only accessed by a simple rope

trekking through the outer edge of the amazon in peru for 4 days by bike and on foot, no poor porters - i carried my own things. so absolutely amazing. saw my first fireflies.

seeing a mom and baby cougar out in Nootka Sound on Vancouver island one morning! the best views ever there too.

Teach, Learn, Share

i can teach others about the environment, local ecosystems, plants and creatures

I love to learn local significances of ecosystems to those living near them or actually depending on the landscape for sustenance :) It is a very humbling thing to learn your place - to know how the earth is providing you with what you need to live and how you can take care of it
