Damn it feels good to be a gangsta...
Where do I begin and where do I end?! Lover of life, music, art, coffee, culture, food...I love good food, beer and wine, conversation, cooking tasty meals, abandoned buildings, mountains, going for walks, learning, teaching, laughing until my belly hurts, embodying passion and compassion, I can be quiet at times - not to be taken as being uninterested in talking with you, just that, I find comfort in silence, smiling, good jokes! And that's just the beginning...
The core of mans' (and womans') spirit comes from experiences.
If you think you're too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito. -Anita Roddick
You are what you eat.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I really believe in this project...in it's entirety. It's not just about a free place to stay...it's about a cultural exchange...be it in conversation, cooking, debates, dance(!), music, etc. I love connecting with people based on our common humanity in addition to our interesting differences.
After living in Albania for 2 years, I decided to take on a new adventure. I am currently living and working on the Winnebago Native American Indian Reservation. Lately, I've been busy becoming acquainted with Indian tradition and culture; specifically that of the Winnebago and Omaha tribe. If you happen to be traveling through on a Wednesday, maybe I can convince the elders to invite you to the sweat lodge...an incredible and life changing event.
I am a participant in spreading the love and good vibes!
I'm always up for a cup of coffee or a drink!
I'm excited to be a part of this project...and I am very open to accepting guests even though I am working many hours during the day.
