About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to move positively throughout the world while being open to adventures as they happen and savouring all of the special moments along the way

ABOUT ME

I have had the travel bug for nearly 20 years now and enjoy exploring new places, learning about different countries and experiencing life with the people of those countries. I live a very active lifestyle and have a positive disposition. I have been a vegetarian for 25 years and am mostly vegan now, care for the environment and consider myself a 'greenie'.

PHILOSOPHY

I try to move energetically and positively through the world and experience as much of it as possible.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I like to meet new, interesting people and CS is a great way to do that. As I'm traveling now, I'm also looking for couches from time to time.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've couchsurfed several times and have met great people and had great experiences. I've also introduced some friends to the wonderful world of couchsurfing....although my mother still thinks it's a crazy idea! haha!

Interests

I have a wide range of interests including TRAVEL!, dancing, yoga, museums, good conversation, pottery, art, theatre, ballet, animals and most outdoor activities (paddle-boarding, SCUBA diving, canyoning, kayaking, tramping, skiing, blading, biking, white-water rafting, sky-diving).

Music, Movies & Books

I read mostly non-fiction and enjoy reading about international travel and peoples' experiences in other cultures.

I prefer independent, art house films.

I enjoy listening to and going to concerts for most types of music: latin, classical, rock, folk, world, country, jazz, etc!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've had some amazing experiences throughout my travels so far and most of them had to do with the people involved in the situations....staying with a friend at her family home and experiencing where she grew up on a small island in Estonia...playing an impromptu game of 'tag' with wonderful and inquisitive children in Lesotho....spending time with a woman in Lesotho and sharing a meal together in her hut as we shared about our different cultural worlds.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm open to learning new things and I'm specifically trying to learn Spanish right now.

I could teach Latin dancing and cooking.

I love to hear and share great travel stories and experiences. There is so much to learn through meeting our 'neighbors'.
