My mission is to meet other respectable individuals who like to celebrate life while traveling
I am a bright,energetic, well rounded young lady. I love participating in diverse inter cultural activities. Such as going out to eat at various ethnic restaraunts. i am always exited about any opportunity to couch surf.
Silence is the absolute poise or balance of body, mind and spirit. The man who preserves his selfhood is ever calm and unshaken by the storms of existence--not a leaf, as it were, astir on the tree; not a ripple upon the surface of the shining pool--his, in the mind of the unlettered sage, is the ideal attitude and conduct of life.
If you ask him: What is silence?" he will answer: "It is the Great Mystery! The holy silence is His voice!" If you ask, "What are the fruits of silence?" he will say: "They are self-control, true courage or endurance, patience, dignity, and reverence. Silence is the cornerstone of character."

EASILY IDENTIFY YOUR LUGGAGE
If your anything like me you have matching luggage with with matching luggage strap. Make an embroidery with your first initial using fabric gel paint. Personalize your straps to stand out and not get confused with the other luggage coming out of the carousel at the airport.
Bring food with you to the Airport. Its a lot cheaper. I try to bring foods with me to the airport that don't spill like ramen noodles,vacuum sealed foods,pop corn freeze dried foods or bags of chips. pack a water bottle some mino or other dried flavors for water
Make sure you bring entertainment for long flights. Magazines, Books, a journal, dvd player, laptop, iPad. It's ok to tell the person next to you that you don't want to have a conversation with them.
When you at arrive at your vacation airport or destination. Don't share a cab with anyone and let them know where you are staying. Sometimes they'll hang out at the front of the hotel or hostel talking to people. Like they had friends there already. If you do not like their behavior let the staff of the hostel know or the security at your hotel. It would be horrifying if you got abducted on your vacation. Let you family know the drivers license plate of the persons license plate
Police Text Numbers
Police in every country usually have text codes which are in general non emergency. You can text your your concern about a suspicious person to the police text number. Example : Text the word DARTpolice to 41411 . This is for the Dart public transportation ride in Dallas,TX in washington,DC you can text video or suspicious info to 50411
OVERSEAS Police Text Code
UK Wales Northern Ireland Scotland 18001 101
DOING RESEARCH ON YOUR HOSTEL
Sometimes doing research on your hostel is key. They're are some Hostels that are known to send for underage girls and the manager has been caught and sent to jail. Beware of BED BUGS usually meaning that you have to dous your room with diatomaceous earth pour along the sides of the wall. In dealing with BED BUGS you can also buy orange and pine needle essential oils or go to a another hostel or hotel. In dealing with BED BUGS you have to steam all your clothing and possessions or throw them away. Also in dealing with BED BUGS a stronger manlier soap is suggested like IRISH SPRINGS,ZEST,ORGANIC SOAPS or get a MANLY BODY WASH from the store. In dealing with BED BUGS get a strong MANLY scented TALCUM POWDER like SHOWER To SHOWER ocean scents.
If you happen to get LICE or FLEAS herbal essences has great GRAPEFRUIT shampoo and conditioner also any shampoos with EUCALYPTUS and PEPPERMINT oils are really helpful. Also you can suffocate the bugs by using vinegar,menthol rubbing alcohol, or ammonia but not all at once. For MOSQUITOS i would use garlic oil citronella candles or incense
Places that have high traffic areas like the middle east ,china, san francisco,ca, new york. It is best to where deep pocket clothing, hidden pockets,zippered pockets and zipped purses. This type of clothing is pick pocketer proof. The more prepared you are on vacation for the better.
LOSING YOUR I.D
Usually you have to get a new birth certificate sent to the address of where your staying. It usually takes 30 days for the birth certificate to drive in the mail.You can show proof of residency with your Hostel or Hotel receipt. Although you do not need a I.D to travel to another state. Usually a TSA officer will ask questions and then you enter the x-ray luggage checkpoint. Few states that do allow you to apply for another license online are florida and new york.
If you don't trust the organization that your staying with pack light. Like a stow away carry on luggage or a backpack. So your not worried about your belongings.
puma shoes are definitely not good walking shoes for long term walking shoes. Pumas are just good for putting the petal to the metal
If your host is being flirty with you....GET OUT OF THERE IMMEDIATELY!! If you don't the whole time your there your going to feel uncomfortable around them and regret your couchsurfing experience. Book a hotel as soon as possible! Tell a family member what happened and enjoy the rest of your vacation. Or with some other sophisticated levels of flirting they may show up to a bar that you go to and to show that they're "friendly" start flirting with girls at the bar and then it escalates to infinity amounts of stalking
What I Can Share with Hosts
†he first thing i want to do is get a tour. I'm not a snooper but if i have to show myself around i will. During the go see to the lavatory let me know if a 15 minute shower is too long for your liking
To be a better host you should let me know if you work in the morning. or if there are scheduled times that you don't want anyone in your house.
let me know if i can't use your computer or if its going to irritate you that I've been on your computer for 30 minutes.
If you find a girl attractive i wouldn't suggest flirting with her or him. Taking advantage of someones vulnerability isn't going to lead to a good couch surfing experience. Remember this visitor is only at your residence for a short amount of time.
one bad experience does not denote a whole lifetime of bad experiences. you can point the finger but you've got 3 pointing right back at you. unless your just in a unforgiving mood. the blame game is for toddlers; it tells me that your mind stagnant and narrow-minded.That you don't know how to deal and personify with all walks of life
