With another year of university under my belt the travel bug has caught me again!!! This time Mat and I are heading to Europe, the land of mystery and tiny tiny countries! We want to play and explore and make new friends!
We like to have nice times with nice people and despite Vancouver being a perfect place for that, the time for travel is here. I'm travelling with my boyfriend Mat who is lovely, and we like to tear up dancefloors and meet rad people and tell good jokes! We're hoping to do a lot of neat things while in Europe- we've already bought some festival and concert tickets, and while we have friends to visit and stay with in some places, we'd LOVE to see others from a local's perspective!! Food, music, sights, parties, relaxing... we like it all!
At home we like to do stuff like ski and enjoy the beautiful features of BC, but it seems that travel bug just won't let us stay here for too long. Last year we went to South America for 4 months, then school dragged me back in, now we are free again!!
Life is a flat circle something something alright alright alright
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Mat's house takes a bunch of couch surfers and they are always stoked!!! Once we had a guy that worked for GOOGLE!!! I used to in my old place but now I have a small basement suite with room for no one... :(
everything is interesting! Mat is an incredible brewer of beers and now we grow our own hops so we can make them locally and organic. We both ski and love going to concerts and running around the streets of Vancouver at night. We do a ton of camping when the snow melts and we're always down for good times with friends like cooking great feasts or playing in the sun!!
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I'm on a festival buzz right now so here are two neat things!! when I was 16 this festival suddenly popped up in my hometown. it was transformed from 2300 people to 40,000 overnight! I pushed my way to the front to see JayZ, Coldplay, Tom Petty and so many more amazing artists sing to me in my backyard!! Now it is coming back to me in 2014!!! That's why we are coming home
Another time I was at a festival in Washington, USA when I realized I'd lost my bag which held every possession in my life while dancing on the crowded hillside. 3 days later, after losing hope, a guy walks up to me and says 'hey I've got this camera filled with pictures of you on it... here you go!' I've never felt so good in all my life. I was left crying with joy in a dubstep pit at 4 am, watching the sun rise and feeling the true beauty of the world and the goodness of people in it.
