Join Couchsurfing to see Meg’s full profile. It’s free!
Thinking of going to Cairo, Petra, Cappadocia, Tokyo or India next....or back to Australia/NZ ... or....
I'm open to meeting new people and learning things about places from local folks. I enjoy wine/beer, etc. and good conversation/food. And I'm not intimidated by meeting a group of folks at once.
I like to laugh, sometimes have a dark sense of humor, and am not opposed to hanging out and showing you the city when I have a free minute to do so.
Carpe diem. You only live once (I think...).
I'll try anything. Twice.
Go big or go home.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I traveled through Spain and Croatia by myself September-October 2011 using CS. I also returned to Spain/France/Portugal with some CS friends in 2012, and then spent a month in Australia in 2013 with some Aussies that I had hosted at my place here in LA. I have met so many kind, amazing people via this project. I've honestly made some amazing life-long friends that it kind of breaks my heart they are now all so far away.
music, movies, seeing live music, wine, food/cooking, yoga, laughing, dancing, talking, etc.
- live music
Music, Movies, and Books
The Wind-up Bird Chronicle, The Great Gatsby (book), Secretary, most all indie rock (e.g., Metric, Mew, Arcade Fire, Beck, Everything Everything, Andy Bull, Bjork, Cornelius, Ed Harcourt, Girzzly Bear, Jeff Buckley, Jellyfish, Bleu, LCD Sound System, Ratatat, Spoon, Soulwax, Tom Petty, Hooray For Earth, Elbow, The Shins, Radiohead, Dale Earnheardt Jr. Jr., etc.), too many to list.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I have jumped 108 stories from the Stratosphere hotel in Las Vegas. It was amazingly peaceful.
Also hiked the Great Wall of China (non-touristy part of the wall). Apparently the part we hiked was closed due to "tourist accidents" (i.e., deaths), but we didn't know that until we were done. Oops.
Seeing how a CS host's father makes his own brandy and wine in the middle of nowhere, Croatia.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you a few chords on the guitar or piano. Or how to cook some really good veggies. I could also teach you how to make a delicious croissant pastry from scratch (but it takes a really long time to make the dough layers).
