fighting for my version of the future, while enjoying the beauty of the moment
I live in West Oakland and have a boat at Pier 39 in SF to stay.
Okay here's my deal, i kinda like it simple:
I grew up in Northern California and know plenty of spots in the bay area.
I like California as it is my home.
I love traveling the world, with as little planning as possible. .
MY hope is that one day, one of you who looks at my profile offers me a couch somewhere...and then ill buy a plane ticket and fly there.
Or you will be in California and i can show you what its about.
i just thought of this the other day, to understand why its so easy to be friends with people ive never met...
as long as you assume everyone is equal, then the only difference becomes language and culture. so its best to try and learn as much of that as possible
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I work for a Solar Company; helping people understand why they need a Solar System. I am a pretty big fan of renewable energy and other types of things like that, ask me about it some day.

I like going to any live music I can find, and going to the beach, and can show you some good ones round here. Other than that, I like hoppin in the car and driving randomly around until I find some amazing new spot. Hiking/Camping, plenty of other stuff
Try and visit SLO on thursday, because the farmers market downtown is very, very nice
Music, Movies, and Books
the movie BARAKA...bla bla bla
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Circumnavigated Globe on ship full of college students
Teach, Learn, Share
One tip I picked up, Cigarettes are like the unofficial currency around the world, offer one and you will go far. I don't often smoke, but you can fake it pretty easy.
Also, bring a jar full of coins from your home country, cause they are cheap for you but worth a lot to other people- seriously, nobody has brought me any foreign coins (thanks Rickard and Olivia for the NZ bucks!)
do that and i will think you are cool.
