Adjusting to life in the DC metro area.
Originally from Tampa, Florida, I've spent the past few years overseas. Most of that time was spent in Warsaw, Poland. I recently relocated to Washington, DC.
I've done a couple long-term solo trips in Europe and have spent several months at a time in different regions of sub-saharan Africa. Though I am a very independent traveler, I am looking to feel more settled in my new location by establishing some new friendships with other expats and couchsurfers.
"Difference is normal"- advice given by my Intercultural Communication professor my last semester of undergrad.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've surfed quite a bit and hosted a few times. I also attend meetups.
Couchsurfing has been a great way to meet people when moving to a new city.
coffee, culture, photography, food, shopping, language, hiking, history, geography
Music, Movies, and Books
My Spotify radio is usually set to anything 90s.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Each trip has been a unique experience, though the most exhilarating feeling was boarding the plane leaving JFK for my first solo travel (which was also my first CS experience!)
Teach, Learn, Share
I'm new to the area and am keen to explore it with someone!
I'm also learning Polish, though very elementary at the moment.
