Wants to Meet Up

Join Couchsurfing to see Alex’s full profile.
When travelling, I love to see as many things as I can in any given day...no matter what they are or how far out of my way I have to go to get there...this probably needs to be diagnosed by a physician. But, I also love certain things that don't require too much frenetic energy...long views over the sea, sunsets, mountain breezes, and the like. I'm friendly, good-natured, and still working to figure out what happens when I have to settle down and stay in one place more than a year! I would love to meet you in Boston, my current home-town, or abroad.
Have spent two years in Russia with extensive travel. Lived in Republic of Georgia. Lived in Australia. Lived and Studied in Czech and Croatia.
Let people have the chance to show goodwill, and you will be amazed at the results. This seems to be the lesson of couchsurfing.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Always be prepared to trust the kindness of strangers...that being said, couchsurfers aren't strangers
