Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm new, so I haven't participated yet. I'm looking forward to meeting couchsurfers.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

In my teens and 20's I traveled throughout the Eastern US and Western Europe, staying on couches or in inexpensive hotels. It was enlightening and fun. Now that I have a little time again I find travel and meeting new people very refreshing and hope that couchsurfing.com can help create some safe and positive experiences.

Interests

Cooking, traveling, walking/hiking, reading, learning about other cultures, places, and languages, photography, software/tech, etymologies, word games, art, old French & Italian embroideries, gardening, långfärdsskridskoåkning (tour skating)

Music, Movies & Books

Currently listening to Kaki King, reading A Visit From the Goon Squad, looking forward to this season of Doctor Who.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I saw the Northern Lights while camping at Moosehead Lake in Maine. It was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.
