To always immerse and absorb in, contribute to and enhance, and learn from my surroundings.
I'm a busy body. I love moving, dancing, cooking, gardening, hula hooping, swimming, skipping, swinging, yoga, hiking, climbing, biking and so much more. I also love to make art out of just about anything and everything. I work with many healing modalities and I love to share but not to preach. I enjoy the company of children though I don't have any of my own. And I love animals. All kinds.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
The over-the-counter, cookie cutter experience doesn't interest me - i.e.; hotels, fancy restaurants, and all the touristy things. Don't get me wrong, I love a nice bed, bath, and an excellent meal, but I'm more into quaint places, street foods, and true history per an area rather than that which is spoon fed to me. So that being said, I feel that in meeting locals, we receive a much richer and more true experience regarding what a place has to offer.
