Join Couchsurfing to see Tristinn’s full profile.
Hi! My name is Tristinn, and I live, work, and play in the wonderful city of Seattle. During my week, I work in Admissions at Bastyr University and teach Academic English to international students at a local community college. During my weekends I hike, eat, and explore my neighborhood. I'm an avid traveler and love living abroad while teaching English.
My household is fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Travel. Food. Friends. Newness. Language. These are what life is all about. Couchsurfing is a unique opportunity to combine these passions without spending a lot of money.
I also think Couchsurfing gives people an opportunity to practice trusting others; people aren't as bad as the news says they are.
I love learning, so I do a lot of reading and talking to others. I also love to experience new things which fuels my desire to travel. In my free time I enjoy jogging, yoga, reading, spending time with inspirational people, and traveling. I'm also really into tea at the moment, so I will definitely share a cup with you when you visit.

Teach, Learn, Share
I'm an ESL teacher...so I'd love to share any English knowledge I have with you.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I'm a pretty light-hearted and engaging person. If I've got the time, I'd love to show around Seattle and the surrounding area. I have a car, so if I'm free, I'm always up for taking my CS to hikes in the mountain or a visit to the sound.
