About Me

I'm Rose.

I have a website:

And here are some pertinent bullet points "About Me" :

Have spent about 50% of the last fifteen years as a long-term traveler, and I enjoy hosting guests when I have a place.

Hitchhiked around the world by myself, 2009-2014

Lived in Taiwan, 2014-2019

Musician, Yogi, Dancer, Writer, Burner


Have been Going Through It™️ for a while - my lover died on my birthday last year - and I'm going to check out the solar eclipse in Austin because I can't think of anything else to do.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've been on and off Couchsurfing since 2009 - back when I had to go to the internet cafe to use the website. It's been a big part of my life and I can't really imagine myself without it.


I do a lot under the "artist" umbrella.
Love the earth, love nature.
15-year yoga practitioner.
Always making alphabet soup in my brain by picking up another language.
Commited to my service as a cosmic intersection and errand girl.
Burning Man alumnus and lifelong festival fairy.
Relationship and communication geek.
Astrology-literate, usually willing to believe in magic.
Passionately in love with all my friends.
Taking comfort in everything that is unknown.

Music, Movies, and Books

I live with a firm commitment to the present, so my favourites tend to be whatever is current in my own little world.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hitchhiked a skydive on the North Coast of Hawaii and a hot air balloon in Cappadocia

Teach, Learn, Share
