About Me

Just a friendly reminder that Couchsurfing is not a dating app. I am not interested in sharing a room or a bed with a host.

I am more active on Instagram so follow my adventures there @alisontheadventurer!

Hi! My name is Alison and I'm a solo female traveler from California. I love the great outdoors, good food and meeting new people.

I have visited 40 countries and six continents! I backpacked through Europe in the summer and winter, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, Peru, Africa and the Middle East. I have also road tripped through New Zealand, Iceland and Baja, Mexico.


1. New Zealand - The most incredible nature I have ever seen

2. Sri Lanka - Beaches and mountains for days

3. Switzerland - My favorite country in Europe complete with awe-inspiring scenery

4. Vietnam - Kind locals, mouth watering food and beautiful nature

5. Iceland - Diverse landscapes, untouched nature and a great country to road trip

6. Egypt - The amazing Red Sea, delicious food, rich history and the most welcoming people

"Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to meet locals to learn more about the culture of the country I am visiting. Locals know more about their home than any tourist ever could.


I love anything outdoors and like staying active when I travel. I also consider myself a foodie and think one of the best ways to learn about a culture is trying the local cuisine. Practicing gratitude every day has helped me become a better and happier person.
