To go as many places and meet as many people as possible. To make life an adventure!
Well, I just finished my studies and am now trying to explore the world! For the past 4 years, I've been a student of literature living in the beautiful Hudson Valley region of New York. I grew up right outside of Philadelphia, but I was born in Athens, Greece and go back every summer. I love traveling and hope to be able to see as much of the world as possible.
I love music, cooking, being with friends, lying in the grass when the weather is nice, and sitting inside under a warm blanket with a cup of tea when it's raining outside. I'm really open to meeting all sorts of people and love that CS brings people from all walks of life together.
I believe it's important to live life with an open and accepting attitude--it's in this way that you can make the best of life, learning from different people who change you along the way.
Live to the fullest, and explore explore explore.(Even what might seem familiar, or boring, it can all be new).
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Unfortunately, since I'm a student living in a college dorm, my couch availability is limited. But if anyone is ever in the area I would be more than happy to show you around the area.
I've only couchsurfed a few times, but have had wonderful experiences each time. It's always been amazing to meet people from all over the world and get to know them, and it's probably the best way to experience a new place.
My interests are many and varied.... I love new experiences, literature and literary theory, music, friendships. I love good conversations with good people, you can learn a thing or two from everybody.
Music, Movies, and Books
I love many types of music, ranging from folk, to classical, to rock. Joni Mitchell, Andrew Bird, DeVotchka, Rodrigo y Gabriella, etc etc
Current favorite book: To The Lighthouse (Virginia Woolf)
Reading: Infinite Jest, David Foster Wallace
