About Me


To discover more about myself. Who am i?!


Some of my best travel experiences have been through doing things like CS but at the same time both hosting and surfing give me mad anxiety. Having to ask to stay at someones place, and meeting new people or showing somebody my city are all things that terrify me. Why do I keep doing this to myself. Because the challenge is always interesting, and you grow from experiences that make you uncomfortable, not when you feel comfortable.

But I am interested in so many different things, especially if its something I don't know much about. I want to see, smell, taste, feel, hear new things everyday. I love to explore new places and talk to people about their different experiences. I ask many questions, and I will try my best not to interrupt. And one more thing: I will admit that I am a bit gluttonous. I love to eat! I like learning about new cultures and getting to know new people through cuisine.

At school, I study Indigenous studies and social agriculture.


“After you are dead and buried and floating around whatever place we go to, whats going to be your best memory of earth? What one moment for you defines what its like to be alive on this planet. What is your takeaway? Fake yuppie experiences that you had to spend money on, like white water rafting or elephant rides in Thailand don't count. I want to hear some small moment from your life that proves you're really alive.
--Generation X: Tales of an Accelerated Culture by Douglas Coupland.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My first experience was when I visited Portland, in the US, and was hosted by this totally awesome guy who showed my friend and I so many cool things and I didn't even realize I could love a place so much in such a short amount of time! Thanks to this local person who took time out of their life to make two girls from Canada feel welcome on his turf. It was...amazing.
Since then I've only had good experiences all over the world!


Reading new books and travelling to new places, or re-discovering already been to places. attending BBQs and picnics. foood/cooking/baking/eating! ALL AT ONCE! haha

Train rides and roller coasters; Joseph-Gordan Levitt and his movies; meandering; rainy days; I enjoy Kyudo; and I dabble a little with the local yoga club.

Music, Movies, and Books

exploring new sorts music or dancing to catchy music, or relaxing to calming music or singing to any music or rapping to hip hop music.
movies that are creative, or movies that make me feel or think or just laugh at.
Cookbooks! New books! Old Books! Graphic novels too! I'm all over the map here...well, figuratively...
If you want some more solid answers these are some books that immediately come to mind: Girlfriend in a Coma by Douglas Coupland, Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Movies: Gigante, Amelie, No Country for Old Men, Sentochihirono Kamikakushi,
