Wants to Meet Up

To meet an obscene amount of interesting people.
I love going out with friends, meeting new people and of course, eating out (despite my skills in the kitchen). I'm a travel junkie and will soon be graduated from Simon Fraser University with a BA in French literature and Humanities (which I'm sure you'll agree explains my obsession with wine and its consumption while surrounded by piles of musty old books.) I'm currently studying Translation
J'adore sortir, rencontrer de nouvelles personnes et bien sûr manger au resto (malgré que je sois bon cuisinier.) Je souffre d'une Wanderlust inguérissable dont je me plains assez souvent. J'ai une licence en literature française et philosophie (un fait qui explique pourquoi je suis un tel amateur de vin, de poésie, etc...)

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I generally surf a lot more than I have host though I have been known to do so on occasion. That 0% response rate is unfortunately due to my laziness, I always forget to review people! I am quite fond of frequenting CS meetings and once spent Christmas with fellow CSers.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
When I was 17 I went on a crazy adventure in Japan completely alone! It was my first travel experience and I was immediately addicted. I met so many amazing people and made so many friends (with whom I'm still in contact!). That trip, and my subsequent voyage to Europe in '09 taught me that travelling alone is the best, if only because it forces you to make friends and talk to people which is always a good thing.
Teach, Learn, Share
I'm awesome in the kitchen and I have a passion for linguistics, literature, and learning foreign languages. I also think that Esperanto is the best idea ever.
