To be amazed, to explore, to learn..
A bit about me...hmmm...I am a generally happy and friendly person, I enjoy surrounding my self with creative souls and anyone with a passion for life (pretty much everyone on this website right?) There are so many lives to live, I want to experience it all and learn from everyone in my path.
Breathe and be present. Life is a playground, enjoy it!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I surf and go to meetups. One day I will host...
I've been couchsurfing in Portugal, Spain, Italy, France, and Hungary last year....it's the best way to travel in my opinion! Such a fascinating experience being thrown into the middle of someones life, so much to learn and share. I can't wait to host when I finally settle down somewhere.
Dancing (salsa and anything else), guitar, photography, live music, reading, listening, singing to my own little tunes, yoga, meditation, waterfall hikes, climbing trees, accordion, currently learning how to play the ukulele on my travels...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Swimming in Pokhara, Nepal and watching the Himalayas appear as the clouds parted...breathtaking!
Hitch hiking on the back of an open air flour truck in Myanmar while the sun set and the stars began to shine. The combination of that feeling of complete freedom, the kindness of strangers, and the surrounding nature made it a stand out moment in my life.
