Here’s what she had to say to The Magic Bus…
So Miss Catherine, who are you?
Ok, so to approach this question, I will start by saying there are many different parts of “who” I am. When I am with friends, I am a friend. When I am in nature, I’m wild, when I am alone, I am creativity and inspiration. But something I carry with me through all of these everyday fazes is love and appreciation. So to sum it up, I’m just another person with an extreme passion for living… meow
Where did you learn to surf and who taught you?
I learned to surf in Santa Monica when I was four. My dad pushed me into a wave and i stood up. but I didn’t get into it till I was about eight or nine.
So where have you travelled? Any favourites?
Oooo good question, Bali, Tahiti, London, Hawaii, Spain, France. I am torn between my two favourites; London and Tahiti. Tahiti was an incredible spiritual place. It was so lush and beautiful, and the all around energy was really powerful. London was so cool because it was such a hustle and bustle, really alive with people and lights. They were pretty much polar opposites but both really enjoyable in their own way. And now to veer off into another subject, which kind of pertains to traveling.. just in a different way.
I have been trying to meditate lately and it’s quite incredible. The space your mind enters into is like nothing on this earth. It’s a completely different field of energy compared to concrete reality. It’s like your head is open space, like pure energy, and you are completely connected. It’s absolutely serene.
