One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Last year I was part of an eco-tourism trip that donated 12 brand new yamaha 200AG motorcycles to National Park Rangers in Lake Hovsgol National Park in Mongolia. After fundraising for the motorcycles and our trip, we flew into Mongolia's capital Ulaanbaatar and rode the motorcycles 1,200 miles to Lake Hovsgol on the Russian border. It was my first time on a motorcycle and it was quite a crazy adventure of dirt biking through mud, up mountains, around lakes and finally able to donate the bikes to the rangers at the park.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to share language and stories. The thing I love most about traveling is the people I meet and the stories and laughter we share, even if they are brief. Traveling allows the exchange of cultural ideas, traditions and personal anecdotes that colors each place differently depending on who you meet.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Warmth, laughter, good book suggestions, house warming gifts, learning to cook!
