About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To boldly go where I have not gone before...(modified Star Trek quote)

ABOUT ME

People who know me think I'm quite sociable, but I can be a little shy initially. I enjoy learning about other cultures. Good food is one of the keys to my heart :)

PHILOSOPHY

I try to be open to new things, to improve myself, to live life to the fullest and to keep things in perspective.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Prior to knowing about couchsurfing, I've hosted a few friends: a friend I met in Japan and a few that I've met on the internet: two guys from the Netherlands and a gal from the U.S.

After joining CS, I've surfed on several couches and have had 6 CSers stay with me. I also hosted a gal from Canada, who isn't part of couchsurfing.

Several things that I really look for when surfing couches: meeting new friends, exposing myself to different culture and viewpoints and lastly, I really like looking at different homes to get inspiration from the way different people decorate their places, different layouts of their rooms, etc. Actually, when I'm back in Boston (my hometown), I really enjoy going to "Open House." Open House=people, looking to sell their homes, who open their homes for potential buyers to view...kinda weird, right ^^

When hosting, I look for non-smoking, independent, respectful, clean, considerate people that are genuinely looking to meet me, interact with me and share themselves with me :) Freeloaders need not apply and will be asked to leave if they happen to come by.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

b)Spent 8 months traveling around South and Central America. The things I learned, saw and experienced were amazing!

Teach, Learn, Share

I love learning bits and pieces of different languages and have picked up words and phrases from friends I've met online and in person.

Culture and food are two other important things that I enjoy knowing more about.

As for teaching, I have grown up mostly in USA and can help you with your English. I am good at giving and showing others how to give a relaxing Swedish massage. I also enjoy cooking and would be glad to share/exchange my knowledge with you.

Sharing: I can share/exchange travel stories with you :)
