to discover more about life
Hum... I am currently living in Acworth, GA with my husband, Angus the boxer, and our cat, Mija. I like having friends over and cooking for them. I also love to travel and am quite addicted to Guatemala. During the school year I teach Spanish at a local high school.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have stayed with others and offer my house as well.
I've couchsurfed in Mexico, Guatemala, Ireland, France, and Italy. We've also hosted a few times. Our house is in the suburbs of Atlanta, so we don't get a lot of requests.
