Join Couchsurfing to see Justin’s full profile.
Florida bored me after graduating from the University of Florida and I had a spare Canadian passport so I packed my things, quit my job and have been living it up in Toronto for over 10 years now.
One of my biggest passions is traveling. (Me and everyone else on Couchsurfing!) I studied abroad in Madrid, Spain in the spring of 2009 which is when I explored most of Europe. That summer, I worked at the Pink Palace hostel in Corfu, Greece, where I met some of coolest people I know. More recently I've been spending the summers in Eastern Europe and the winters in Central/ South America.
I rarely say no to an opportunity to try something new and I love new experiences. Especially living in Toronto, I love going to sporting events and discovering new music. If you stay with me for any amount of time, we will probably go to a concert. I check http://www.blogto.com/events/ on a daily basis to see if anything interesting is going on in Toronto.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I'd be happy to show people as much of the city as I know, or for that matter, explore the city together. Whether you want a host or just to meet-up for coffee send me a message and we'll try to make it happen.
*If you send a requests, please at least pretend your read my profile. If you send a copy and paste request, don't expect a response when I decline. I also haven't had great experiences when people are either moving to Toronto or visiting friends in town, so I'll probably decline those requests."
Any outdoor activities.. I play tennis and golf. Love going to sports games. Traveling, meeting new people. Music.. I always enjoy a good night out and rarely so no to the chance at having one.
