About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to learn as many new recipes from different cultures as possible

ABOUT ME

I love to travel and meet people from foreign cultures. A favorite activity of mine is to be outdoors, whether it be biking, hiking, walking or backpacking. I am also very interested in special education and have considered studying occupational therapy. I also love to cook healthy food, knit, and am a person who always smiles. I have a good sense of humor and love to make people laugh.

PHILOSOPHY

Smile. Laugh. Surround yourself with positive energy.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I share about my own culture and travels and participate in local meet-ups.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Really positive. I have gotten to know so many cool people through CouchSurfing and have gotten to do so many cool things. Hiking and camping throughout Austria, joining a sustainability group, biking with other Couchsurfers in Critical Mass, organizing a Laughter Yoga workshop, and traveling to so many cool areas are only a few reasons why CouchSurfing rocks. I love that you learn from locals and get to go beyond being merely a tourist. I am impressed by the open-mindedness that CouchSurfers have and how much you can learn from other people.

Interests

Hiking, cooking, drinking tea, watching foreign movies, knitting, speaking foreign languages, learning about new cultures, wine tasting, going on adventures, working with children, being creative, camping, biking, painting, massage, talking through problems, making people happy.

Music, Movies & Books

I love documentaries and foreign films. Yes Men, A Day in the Life, The Lost Boys of Sudan, Food Inc, Mother, I Loved You For So Long, Plastic Planet, The Corporation, and The Princess and the Warrior are only a few of my favorites.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Riding my bike naked in Critical Mass in Vienna. Running the Frauenlauf in Vienna. Running a Laughter Yoga workshop. Giving up public transportation and Vienna and only biking everywhere. Giving away free hugs at the Gay Pride Parade in Vienna.

People who are young-at-heart and adventurous and love the great outdoors.
