About Me


discover that moment of childlike awe that happens when you encounter something that makes you so happy you want to squeal


Lina (and her kitty Raffi) live in Walla Walla, VT. Lina does design and operations work at an architecture firm, enjoys movie and game nights with friends, and is savoring a Pacific Northwest winter. Raffi spends most of his time seeking the warmth of puddles of sunshine and blankets.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Lina and her friend Katie stayed with wonderful people during a two week trip to Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg). Lina has now hosted a bevy couch surfers and hopes to meet many more.
