backpacking on a solo round-the-world adventure
Traveling has become an all encompassing obsession for me. I can't get over the wonder of meeting new people from different cultures and visiting new foreign places. The rest of my life is filled with my love of music, my dog, my parents, and friends.
Fuck 'em if they can't take a joke.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm all about human kindness in this world of tension (in America, at least). You can crash at my place, and hopefully Karma will return the favor as I go globetrotting.
Some of my best travelin experiences have been through couchsurfing!
music, dogs, adventure, new experiences, sincere human connections, fun in the sun, and the outdoors in general, punk rock
Music, Movies, and Books
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I got stuck on a passenger bus in Burma that was trafficking mass quantities of heroin. (no joke)
My trekking guide in Nepal convinced me it was a good idea to cross a deluge in the Himalayas (during the monsoon) on his back. He dropped me, and we both almost went over the falls.
I left Christchurch 51 hours before it was destroyed by an earthquake.
Almost got attacked by a rhino while on the back of an elephant.
I've eaten the beating heart of a snake.
Been to 48 states.
Almost caught a squat on fire in Vienna while drinking absinthe with one of my favorite bands.
Spent a 14 hour bus ride in Laos on a twin mattress next to a 50 year old local man I had never seen before in my life.
Got Dengue Fever in India...and again in Turkey
I've got plenty of stories....
