In October of 2009 I moved to Überlingen, Germany from the US. For some reason, after growing up in the Midwest of the US (yes Kansas, the same place Dorothy and the Wizard live in), I decided to move to what seems to be the Midwest of Europe! But I absolutely love being in south Germany, just off of the Bodensee working with an international design team. I'm a landscape architect by education (although I have quite a bit to learn) and constantly intrigued by design in its small and large forms.
I'm hoping to visit all of Europe, but most importantly, I'm looking to meet people be it through surfing or hosting, to share stories and drinks, learn languages and cultures, and enjoy my time as I start out on the beginning of my career. I hope you can be a part of it.
I love that I now have the opportunity to see Europe and enjoy it. I've always tried to travel through Couchsurfing but I can say that it is just one form of travel. If I havent found a host, I have at least been able to meet up with locals from the area which I find just as rewarding. From Switzerland, Austria, and the vastness of Germany, to the UK, France, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, Spain, the Netherlands - hiking in the Alps, skiing and learning to snowboard, rock climbing in Germany and Austria, and just enjoying my traveling time, getting to know new people along the way and establishing friendships when and where I can.
How does one describe themself? Guess the easiest way is just to meet me, meet my friends, and take in your own impression.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I am willing to host anytime granted that I am here and have space. If you are traveling through Uberlingen as a cyclist touring the Bodensee or are just looking for a lovely vacation spot, need someone to crash with - please let me know. Although I am quite busy at work during the week, doesnt mean that I cannot host. I would love to meet at a cafe or a bar for a drink anytime as well!
Check out below. Been doing some traveling while living in Germany. But I would say that what is most fulfilling is having some good friends - many that i have met simply through traveling, couchsurfing, meeting people and have just developed into friends over time - that come visit me or ones that I can visit again! I would say that couchsurfing, while rewarding in the sense that one has the opportunity to experience a new place with someone familiar - is in its essence most rewarding when one gets to meet someone again!
Hmm what to say - I do enjoy playing music but its been awhile. My best friend back home is great on drums, and I try what I can on guitar and bass. Although I first started on the piano, which I value just as much. I am actually I enjoy a good run, sketching and painting, learning other languages - trying to learn French and Spanish currently, practicing my cooking skills, generally been busy with some of my 'next plans'. Got some ideas of what to do, where to go. Just got my drivers license as well here so Im feeling pretty settled down which is great.
I once cooked a meal my own dog wouldn't eat - but that was years ago. I learned that hey, if you practice, you can do it. Now, I really enjoy prepping, cooking, and trying different dishes and want to find people as interested in cooking, trying new ingredients, and of course, drinking (beer, wine, whiskey perhaps) as I am.
There's a lot more, so just ask.
- rock climbing
Music, Movies, and Books
Have a lot but let's go with some simple ones.
Music - 311, Beirut, Rodrigo y Gabriela - finally got to see them this year play and it was amazing. Just found out about Royksopp, thats a current favorite.
Books - oh so heres an update. Murakami was fun but there's definitely a specific style. I did like the Lord of the Ring Series but reread it, its only ok, lets see currently reading Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and Life of Pi, but one great one is The City of Dreaming Books. I dont really keep track because especially when i was young and had time i would read and read and read. Now i draw and sketch and find time for those activities. I mean Orwell was a natural, Nick Hornby, Pahlinhuik (sp?), others of course.
Movies - it should be known that those who listen to movies while working are still able to achieve just as much or more than those who put on earplugs or listen to music. I tend to do this as movies provide a carefree way to enjoy while still being productive. I know - men can also multitask, just not in all things! Anyways just saw Chinatown (wrote this in 2009 btw), but how about British movies, Lock Stock, Harry Potter's not bad, Clockwork Orange, Superbad - come on, what is there not to love? What did I recently see ummm I forget but I like anything that the Hot Fuzz guys have done.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Hiking in the Alps (I don't really like heights so it's big for me), rock climbing, tornadoes in Kansas City. I've been to the Phililppines to visit my family and live like a local, participated in a Chinese funeral ceremony, nothing amazing above but what else what else...
Oh yeah, I just realized - I met Feist when I was working at Harrahs. I of course stupidly said to her when she told she was playing that night, "oh Yeah, and what type of music do you play? That sounds really cool - indie type acoustic rock? That sounds like something everyone likes." I had no idea who she was.
Teach, Learn, Share
Tagalog - so I understand it like english, but talking is a different story :) eh, once the languages mix it gets a bit tough to remember but yeah. Cooking mainly Asian or tex-mex type food. Guitar. Sketching, a bit. There's more but I can't really think of too much. I do want to learn French as well as relearn spanish - really more for spanish. Im interested in meeting people as well who are self-starters cause im trying to figure out what I want to do next, have ideas, but motivation is great to have from others.
