About Me


To be where you are...if only for a little while..


I've spent nearly 10 years of my life working and living on cruise ships. As a result, staying in one place for vacations gets to be monotonous and frustrating. Therefore, it's my plan to see as much of the world as possible. However, staying in hotels and camping won't give me the personal exposure and experiences I'm in this for.


life is what you make of it

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I keep an open mind and heart and appreciate other cultures from first-hand experiences.


Since I haven't had a real home in 7 years, I'm accustomed to couch-surfing, so it seems to be the best way to travel.
