About Me

I have been a member of CouchSurfing for over 7 years now (since 2011). I have nothing but positive things to say about this site. Although not really happy with the new updates, it is still a great way to travel and meet people.

To start this off, my name is Andres and I am from Colombia (born and raised). My family moved to the United States when I was a young kid, so I claim both Colombian and American citizenship. I am 26 years old (as of the time of posting this).

My long term goal is to visit at least 1 city in every single country around the globe. From the time of this post, I have visited well over 60 countries. My passion is to travel and to explore what life has to offer. I do consider myself an adrenaline junkie. From skydiving to scuba-diving to hiking/trekking. I have done it all.

I am currently based out of Bitburg Germany and my house is open for surfers. If you are traveling in my area, definitely drop me a line. I am very open minded and love to meet new people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Why I'm on Couchsurfing? That's actually a pretty good question. I found out about CouchSurfing back in 2011, got to admit that I was very hesitant and nervous about surfing at other people's houses. But when I had my first experience in Lima Peru, I was hooked. For me, CouchSurfing is more than free accommodations. It is a way to explore different cultures and a great way to make friends. Friends that i wouldn't make if I had travel the regular way. I believe that CouchSurfing can have a great impact on people's lives. It is a way to push people out of their comfort zone. It is a way to see the world through other people's eyes. I see myself using this site for the rest of my life, either by offering my house to other people, or surfing while I travel the world.

Interests

My main interest is to travel. I have the opportunity to do so at the moment and I will most definitely take advantage of that fact.

Nothing can be more rewarding than exploring the world and making friends along the way.

Carpe Diem :D

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Living in Europe by myself. :D

Teach, Learn, Share

“Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.”
