Join Couchsurfing to see Sarah’s full profile. It’s free!
To stay open-minded, meet great people and be grateful. So far, I've been very lucky in experiencing these three things and it's always led me to story-worthy moments and meaningful connections.
A little shy but fiercely independent. I'm from Portland but just spent the winter in Chicago and decided enough's enough -- I'm newly migrated to NYC. I'm hoping to use CS in the fullest which DOES NOT mean just a free stay to me. Being a part of CS is meeting other members of the community and learning from each other.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've hosted when living situations allow for it (when roommates are willing) and have been lucky enough to be a guest many times.
- I met one of my best friends through couchsurfing (in Australia) and we went on to travel together in Indonesia and then moved to the same city in the States!
- a group of neuroscientists attending a convention in Portland
- fun-loving Israelis who enjoyed playing ukulele
- a warm Mexican family who took me in as their own
If you're looking to be a guest, I would love to have you! Please mention the keyword 'scuba' in your message :)
listening, baking, scuba diving, poetry slams, bad puns, storytelling, web development
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I think these headers have changed since I last filled this out. I don't remember having to limit it to one!
If limited, I'd have to say my first solo trip. It was to Europe and it opened my eyes to traveling independently. I learned that you're never alone, no matter where you are in the world.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can offer....basic piano and clarinet lessons? I've played for 12 years and can offer a few tips here and there. Tennis lessons as well, if you feel so inclined. I've also recently acquired some web skills but please keep in mind that they're a new development!
I would love to hear stories--new viewpoints encourage growth and understanding.
