Explore, dream, discover. -Mark Twain
~Alex and Kathleen~
We have been travelling for soo long, but finally decided to "settle down", or at least have a more permanent home to come back to.
Lately, we've been doing a lot more daytrips, exploring upstate NY/NJ/PA as well as our own city. I can't believe we grew up within a few hours of soo much and even travelled the world without really knowing our own backyard!! Sooo now we are taking advantage of the fact that we live in the greatest city in the world and are looking to share it with other fun loving people! =)
Kat: Back in high school I fell in love with this quote, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” (Mark Twain)
I try to live by that.
"It is always surprising how small a part of life is taken up by meaningful moments. Most often they are over before they start although they cast a light on the future and make the person who originated them unforgettable." (Phra Piya Maharat)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
HOSTING: We just bought a home!!!!! so we can finally host!
HANG OUT:If you already have somewhere to stay, still feel free to send us a message. If we are free, maybe we can still meet up and take you to the BEST pizzeria in NY, and show you the most diverse county in the world, (over 170 languages spoken) not to mention the BEST hole in the wall restaurants. If you're around in the summer, we love going out to Long Island. We have our favorite orchards, vineyards, and beautiful beaches we love visiting on weekends, so let us know if you want to come along for the ride!
SURFING:We love traveling, and if we are in your area and you want to grab a bite to eat, show us a place you love, or even put us up for the nite =D, let us know!!
Amazing so far!!! Met some pretty great people in our travels.
Love traveling, learning about other cultures, trying new foods, meeting new people, and exploring new places. Love going to the beach(soon hope to be PADI certified), dancing(salsa, merengue, bachata, whatever!~even learning ballroom although he tends to have two left feet..heh!!), and clowning around with friends. Always up for an adventure!!
Music, Movies, and Books
We have a very eclectic taste in music. Love rock, latin, 80's, oldies, and pop. Kathleen also listens to country music and Alex loves his 90's rap and reggae.
I love romantic comedies, dramas, Disney, Bollywood movies, and good psychological thrillers. In addition to Alex hiding his tears during my movies, he loves action and stand up comedy. We both usually end up settling on a suspense or crime drama though. Some favorite movies are A Bronx Tale, Gladiator, Sin Nombre, Airplane!, Salaam Namaste, Coming to America, Rocky, Beauty & the Beast, and so on.. and so on...
