Hey, I'm Stephanie.
I just recently road-tripped back to Rhode Island after spending a few years living in San Francisco & exploring the West Coast. I love to travel & learn as much as I can in this crazy thing we call life. People describe me as being a positive, funny, caring, laid-back, drama-free person. I get along with everyone & love meeting new people and creating memorable experiences.
My hobbies include singing (karaoke), dancing (currently learning salsa), gymnastics (floor tumbling), kayaking, snowboarding, fishing, rock climbing, hiking, water sports, camping, & anything active/outdoorsy. I was that little girl who would pick up any insect and bring it inside the house to play (don't worry, I won't be bringing any creepy crawlies into your home if you're hosting me. haha).
I would love to travel all over the world and prefer to stay with locals over staying in hotels to better learn about and participate in the culture of the destination I am visiting. I feel that's the only way to really experience and understand their world as they see it. My boyfriend and I traveled with some friends & spent a couple of weeks backpacking around the Dominican Republic in March '14. We had the time of our lives and I am forever addicted to backpacking and prefer it over the traditional style of travel. It just leaves so much more room for spontaneity.
