Join Couchsurfing to see Shannon’s full profile. It’s free!
showing people my light (and my city)
I am a city girl who loves the nightlife, shopping, dining and dancing. I also love the great outdoors and have no problem camping in the wilderness or hiking in the jungle without a toilet or shower for days on end. I see travel as a valuable form of education and it has been my focus for the past 12 years now.
I do not host surfers without references for safety reasons.
Travel now while you can, don't wait till retirement! Retire every year for a month or three.
Be kind to all.
