About Me

Hello there,

My names Arlo, I'm an American who lives in Helsinki, but is now traveling South America with my Girlfriend. Im an avid traveler and I love love love meet other travelers and hear their stories!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Travelling! Bicycling! Motorcycling! Making people Laugh! Inadvertantly making myself laugh by confusing people and causing an awkward silence while attempting to make them laugh! Politics! Thermal energy! Historically accurate novels!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teach, Learn, Share

Economically, it doesn't makes sense to travel for the sake of traveling. But if you know your time on Earth is short, and you're able to get up and go, then it doesn't make sense not to.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Tea, movies, music, an extra towel and sleeping bag. Oh and toothpaste and shampoo. I like making people food too so that's always a possibility.
