À propos de moi

I recently graduated from university and just embarked on a road trip I'm calling The Real America Road Trip. I'm mostly visiting red states and skipping blue states (with a few exceptions). I've never been anywhere in the Midwest or the South before so I'm very excited. I'll be going through some 37 US States, 2 Canadian Provinces, and staying in about 45 cities. After this last hoorah I'm moving to Lisbon, Portugal to get a Master's in International Management at NOVA SBE; so hopefully after this journey when Europeans inevitably ask me to explain everything about the US I'll be able to give them a better answer!

Conversations with my Couchsurfing hosts and others can be found on iTunes or on YouTube. Just search "PlaneSurfer" iTunes is the way most people listen.

My Past Trips:
I went on a few road trips that introduced me to couchsurfing but it wasn't until I worked for Alaska Airlines during the last half of 2013 that I really began to travel meaningfully. Flying standby on my days off I was able to see a lot of the US and Mexico in a short amount of time. In the summer of 2014 I flew to Mexico City for what was supposed to be a two month trip through Central America. 10 months later I flew home from Lima, Peru. It was the best and most meaningful 10 months of my life!

During the summer of 2016 I spent three and a half months traveling through 28 countries in Eastern and Central Europe as well as the Middle East. It was a whirlwind trip as I'm sure you can imagine.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is too short to be taken seriously, but it's also too short to not be taken seriously.

Pourquoi je suis sur Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing delivers an unparalleled experience that's well worth it despite the occasional headache. I've found the people here to be truly fantastic with highly admirable spirits.

Ce que j'aimerais partager avec mes hôtes

I'm always interested in doing new and strange things! I think I'm pretty fun to be around and enjoy talking about anything; no topic is off limits. I'm an open minded person who's always been a little outspoken and never been very politically correct.
