I want to meet people from different cultures.

ABOUT ME

I like travel, and am joining couchsurfing to meet new people more often. When traveling, I definitely prefer meeting local people, over just staying in a hotel and visiting the landmarks.

PHILOSOPHY

Pursue beauty.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I saw a spider making it's web on a tree, by a creek. It was spiraling out as it wove the web. In the background was the setting sun. Felt good for the spider.
