Hey, I'm Elana!
Austin, Texas, United States · Member since July 2012

I'm a chill, curious, nature loving person interested to share with other people from all over the world. I have been lucky enough to travel to many places and meet many amazing people along the way. I enjoy sharing meals with others and love foods of all kinds! I also enjoy music and dancing, practicing yoga, riding my bicycle and taking long walks. I've been working with kids since I graduated university. I taught students with multiple disabilities at the Texas School for the Blind for a few years. My students were some of the most creative, spontaneous, beautiful people I have ever met. One summer I volunteered at a wildlife park, giving tours to guests, teaching them about the animals. Have you ever met an Okapi? I also worked at a toy store, and i was in a performance duo called, Krazayzay. I have taught ESL in 3 different countries over the past few years. Currently I am an academic advisor at a university.

If you host me, I will be open to seeing the city through your eyes. I am an independent traveller, so I won't expect you to show me around, but it would be really nice to cook dinner with you, visit some local restaurants or see live music with my host sometimes. I am not a big partier, so I will be more on the relaxed side. The music I enjoy is really anything good. Like...Don Cherry, Ethiopiques, Nina Simone, Robert Wyatt, Can, Zap Mama, Lata Mangashkar, Radiohead, John Fahey, Fred Frith, Peruvian cumbia, salsa, jazz, Korean folk music, and Thai Morlam music!

Spontaneity is the fountain of youth!
