About Me

My name is Elizabeth; I love meeting new people, and learning about culture and language. I'm friendly and enjoy open-minded, adventurous people.

There are no shortcuts to anywhere worth going.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

CS is a great idea and an excellent way to meet people that you'd otherwise never meet. Hopefully, more good people than crappy ones.

Thank you, Internet.
