to see it all, baby.
I like to go to cities and immerse myself in everyday life of that place--i enjoy getting lost and drinking lots of coffee and trying new cuisine. I love to dance and play music and take lots of pictures of my friends, water, bugs, grafitti, refrigerators...
I grew up in Saint Paul, MN, a city in the Midwest of the United States. for the past two years i lived in Chicago, going to school, working, and whatever else. I moved to Paris for 4 1/2 months with my friend from Chicago. Living and traveling in Europe was full of the coolest experiences of my life. I cannot wait to go back.
But for now, I am back in Chicago (which I love, too!) The US really is a great place, and worth a visit, I swear.
I like those days when you wake up in the morning and have no idea where the day will lead.
I don't want to look back on my 20s and think, "wow, i wish i had done more..." I want to push myself to go outside my comfort zone and really plunge into the world and see what it's all about.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I couch surfed with some amazing people in Italy. At the time I joined couchsurfing I was living in Paris and could not host, but I am now back in Chicago, with lots more space! And lots more couch!
I had a magical time in Italy while couch surfing. If my friend and i had just gone their on our own, we probably would not have met anyone or made the friends we did through couchsurfing. Our host was fantastic and so welcoming and had so much knowledge about his city that it made our trip even more unforgettable. I had such an amazing time learning new words and about other cultures with the people we met there. It was truly one of the coolest things i've ever done.
dogs, big jewelry, trees, traveling, exotic instruments, the history channel, chill people, how things are made, hanging around with friends either doing nothing in particular or something spectacular
Music, Movies, and Books
Movies: Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Two days in Paris, Im July
Music: AA Bondy, Great Lake Swimmers, Laura Marling, the ting tings, and the music i create with my friends
Books: time traveler's wife, gossip girl, the secret diary of adrian mole, le petit prince. I am currently reading the Story of Edgar Sawtelle, and it is riveting.
