About Me

universe-ity student

'What is the process of cartography? It's, you know, sailing upon some land, and thinking, "I think I'll draw that bit of land," and then wondering, "Maybe there's some more land to draw." '

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

because I i think that hotels can be so damn expensive -- the remote control curtains and the snow white sheets and the breakfast buffets are great, but I believe that travel shouldn't be a luxury only the privileged can afford,

i believe in nice people who want to help make exploring new territory more affordable and immersive and who genuinely like talking to lost, culture-shocked wanderlusts, over both good and bad beer
