About Me

CURRENT MISSION

love the life: love myself wherever i'm found and love those I meet each day

ABOUT ME

We are us.

Trazy - I don't even know what to put in here anymore. I'm 31 years old and trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up.

I've lived overseas a couple times, traveled quite a bit and have enjoyed learning everything I have. I loved working with NGOs overseas and would do it again when the next opportunity arises.

Life stresses me out too much sometimes. I'm learning to take it easier and live for the moment and treasure them all as they come.

I have some really crazy goals and each step I take is taken with those goals in mind ('eye on the prize, eye on the prize').

I like meeting new people because you never know when a new friendship will be formed or when a new adventure partner will arrive in your life.

I love LOVE.
My profile used to say that I'm incapable of romantic love, but someone has proven that wrong (thankfully).
I'm still, however, focusing all my energy on loving the world above myself.

Eaic -

I am 24 years old. I work at a steel mill in New Jersey, but I'm originally from Southfield (Detroit), Michigan. I'm studying Nutrition and Exercise Science and in my free time, I go the gym as much as possible.

I haven't traveled as much as Trazy, but I have a great interest in the middle eastern and Asian cultures.

I am new to the city and still finding my way around, but I'm happy to be here and join on any adventure.

PHILOSOPHY

When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life to the fullest so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We like hosting and when we can break free, traveling makes us reeealllllly happy :)

I'll be completely honest - I am extremely busy during the weekdays. When the weekends hit, sometimes I have a ton of energy, sometimes I just want to chill. Aside from hosting when I can, I have minimal involvement. I love meeting people, though, so it's a constant struggle, you see?

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have had the great opportunity to host more than I've traveled, but I enjoy showing others my city and sharing in the beauty and fun with new people. It makes me have more appreciation for my city as well...

I will forever hold Budapest, Hungary in my heart as the city that introduced me to my love of showing hospitality to others.

Spontaneity is key. Unfortunately, I don't have the financial resources to be as spontaneous as I would like... but if you're here in NYC, I may just join you on the next leg of your journey. I like traveling alone and with groups - it just depends on what the goal is. Be prepared for anything... and any experience WILL be what you make it.

Interests

peace,
love,
happiness

I've lost all three in my past, but I'm slowly recovering and trying to move on... and find them again.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Aushwitz. the thought that the world was (and is still) so messed up that something like this was created and used just blows. my. mind.
**********
I sat in a room with Hungarian mothers once who poured out their hearts and told me they'd be praying for my mother because it would be so hard to have a daughter living so far away. They didn't know me or my mother, but the amount of love they showered upon me was amazing. I'll never forget that feeling.
**********
I like stories that involve me, a random group of people in a random place in the world, and beer. I have a story that begins "So, I was drinking beer in the Ukraine with a bunch of Hungarian gypsies..." and honestly, when was the last time you heard a story like that? The ending isn't as great as the beginning... but really, that's like life in general, eh?
**********
I rented a car and took off one August. I drove from Michigan to the Grand Canyon... and beyond. 10 days of nothing but me, my radio and the road. I ate what I wanted, I slept where I wanted (even in my car trunk one night), and I farted whenever I wanted. I saw the Grand Canyon at sunrise and sat on the edge drinking lemonade. I reconnected with friends and family in Texas and Arizona. It was perfect.
