Join Couchsurfing to see Melissa’s full profile. It’s free!
My passions are hiking, food, traveling, and working in hospitality. After college, I spent two years working as an Innkeeper at a bed & breakfast in Southeastern Utah. I hiked the Appalachian Trail (in two sections) and then moved to The White Mountains in Northern New Hampshire to work at a back-country hut. In between jobs, I've spent time traveling around Panama, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, and Australia. I've settled down a bit since my travels and am now working as an Event Planner.
Meeting people from other countries and learning how to cook the local food are my favorite things to do while traveling outside of the US.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Couchsurfing seems to be a great way to meet the locals and experience a new culture and country through their eyes. I love the idea of making new friends around the world who could potentially come visit me in the future!
Hiking, cooking, FOOD, reading, exploring new places
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

What I Can Share with Hosts
I'm friendly and very easy going. I would love to explore new areas with my host, but I am also capable of doing my own thing if they have prior commitments. I also love to cook and would be happy to prepare a meal or two with my host :)
