About Me


To meet interesting people; travel; learn; grow as a human being and become a more peaceful individual.


Right now my work is quite flexible so I would like to travel more...of course! I have traveled around Europe and a bit of Asia...
I love learning about different cultures and people. Unfortunately I am not very language proficient...but I try my best to communicate.
Hopefully I will see many places on this planet and not by a tour bus...but I am lazy and may someday end up on one;)
Our trip to Iceland was a great adventure and I believe I am a bit more enlightened as to why Icelanders are some of the happiest people on the planet...they don't sweat the trivial or have as much fear of people and the unknown.

About me: I sculpt(metal and mixed media), love the water (swimming, boating, etc.), dancing, joking, drinking and eating, meeting new people, nature (rocks, animalia, land), and of course travel;)

Love, Charis


Laugh as much as possible.

Music, Movies, and Books

I really love to experience a new song or a new movie (probably in a language I am unfamiliar with), and books that help me see life and the world from a different perspective.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Nature: The beautiful cliffs on the Greek Isles that are so beautiful you can feel god (I am not generally religious).
Swimming in a bioluminescent bay near Puerto was like magic.

Teach, Learn, Share

If your room has a bug net...put it around the bed as soon as possible;) and trust your instincts.
