Join Couchsurfing to see Ben’s full profile. It’s free!
My mission is to travel for at least one month per year from now on.
I'm an easy going guy who is constantly curious and eager to try new things. I have a restless sense of adventure, a passion for cooking, and an aversion to taking life too seriously.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I couchsurfed on and off throughout my month-long travels last summer in Western Europe, and loved it! The hospitality was outstanding.
Cooking, eating, racquetball, hiking, camping, cycling, running, painting, drawing, and of course, traveling

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
The two most amazing things I've ever done are:
1. Biking 185 miles straight in 21 1/2 hours, leaving at 3:00 AM with no sleep and arriving to the destination at 12:30 AM the following day
2. Staying awake for 48 hours straight in order to finish a mural by the set deadline
