About Me




I'm trying to learn to travel light. I bought a one-way ticket to Istanbul to live out the "dream" I've had since I studied abroad here - or did the dream come before studying abroad? Tough to separate. Right now I'm trying to figure a thing or two out, maybe save a lil skrill, and in the meantime I'd love to share as many adventures/laughs/music/food as physically and mentally possible.


Never settle.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I. While backpacking along the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, my friend and I accidentally couchsurfed. It was an awesome accident.

II. Couchsurfed in a Turkish neighborhood in London and made friends around every turn and over every fence! No doubt!
