believe i am very laid back and easy going. i will try anything at least once, and most things twice. more often than not, i am friendly. i have a great sense of smell.
i am quite low maintenance, my favourite food is cheese.
I like playing outside in the grass with no shoes on. I like swimming with my clothes on. The cheaper the wine, the deeper my appreciation. I like making my own clothes and spilling food on them by accident. I play violin too and I like building cakes,dining wine
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Though my circumstances are currently in constant flux, I may be able to offer a couch from time to time, and even if I can't, I'd be very happy to meet up for a coffee and show some nice little things I've discovered here so far. I am hungry for new experiences and I would love to meet people from all around the world and learn much from them.
I have surfed twice, and both of those experiences were really wonderful. Haven't had the chance to host anyone yet.
I'd really love to become more active in the near future as I'm starting to increasingly resemble a kite - that is to say, I've little roots left and I quite like it that way.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I don't know if it's necessarily amazing but certainly spontaneous - a friend called me up one Friday night telling me about how one of his mates cancelled on a skydiving thing they had had planned for that weekend for months. I spent the Saturday doing the training course and jumped out of a plane 3000ft early Sunday morning without any assistance - my mom saw the facebook pictures a few days later and skinned me alive for not mentioning I was jumping
Teach, Learn, Share
I’d love to learn about other cultures, about other people and maybe even a little of other languages during my couch surfing life.
Maybe my couchsurfing experiences will help me experience life from an angle I would maybe not have otherwise experienced.
I can run Laughter Yoga sessions with people.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I am very friendly and love to share experiences of growing up with different people from different backgrounds. I am a great cook and generally like to help out where possible. And of course, I'm canadian so there will be my banter!
Countries I’ve Visited
