About Me

I'm new to this, I'll take any help and advice I can get:)

*Planning to do a huge backpacktrip across the world, I'll be visiting: New Zealand, Australia, Asia, then Europe.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Spent 4 years in Otis, where I ceased to see the light of day. Unfortunately this school rarely offered any travel/study abroad programs. I was stuck doing the same routine, pulling all nighters back to back and dreaded being in one place. Now that I have graduated, I've made a promise to myself travel as much as I can before I get stuck in a job. More importantly, I'm doing this to discover new places that may inspire me or offer me creative opportunities as well as meeting new people.

Also interested in being a future potential host, so what better way to gain experience :) I would like to offer the same treatment and hospitality that is offered to me, and build some friendships that will last a lifetime.
