About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Spreading the Peace and Love

ABOUT ME
I'm one of those outgoing introverts. I love meeting new people and pushing the limits of my comfort zone. I also like reading and sleeping :)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've couchsurfed in Mexico City and Reno and loved it! I hope to do it again soon! I've also hosted a few people in New York and DC. Traveling and meeting new people is my biggest addiction.

Interests

people, travel, social/political documentaries, languages, music, stories, sunrises, food, new experiences, yoga, good chocolate, Burning Man

I like laughing, talking, thinking, dancing, swimming, biking, hearing and telling stories, eating, hiking, skiing, learning sarcasm, meditating, and stretching...
