About Me

Hola!

I'm Bronson, from Minnesota, USA, and I'm traveling together with Ahmed (you can see his profile below).

Right now (April 2015) we are traveling in Thailand, and elsewhere in SE Asia, part of a four-month trip around Eurpoe and Asia!

We're both easygoing, open-minded, love to travel and meet new people and learn about other cultures.

I'm a freelance translator and journalist, and Ahmed has worked at various nonprofits.

We want to make the most out of our travels and couchsurf with people in different countries and continents. Looking forward to meeting you !

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Ahmed and I hosted dozens of couchsurfers in Xalapa and Mexico City. We're traveling from now until the end of April 2015 and hope to surf on different couches during the next few months. Eventually, once we settle down in Chicago or California, we'd love to continue receiving couchsurfers from all over.

We have also hosted many people through AirBnb, and we spent two months volunteering on a nonprofit community farm in Northern California.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My first couchsurfing experience ended up being my best! I met my best friend and we've been inseparable for eight years, and now we're married! (user — amd)

Interests

I like cooking (especially vegetarian-Mexican dishes), photography, camping, swimming, yoga, spending time with my friends and writing. I can't„ dance, but I want to learn. I'm usually pretty shy, but that's nothing a few beers can't fix :D

Music, Movies & Books

Bossa nova, reggae, dub, salsa, Radiohead, Muse, electronic, jazz, Bob Dylan, MIA, Cesária Évora, Billie Holiday

Ensayo sobre la ceguera, Kafka on the Shore, 100 Years of Solitude, Lord of the Rings, Ascend

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Spent New Years' 2014 in Zipolite, Mexico, my favorite beach ever.

Watched baby turtles emerge from their shells and out to the sea, from the spot that they would return to many years later to give birth.

I survived 2012's Hurricane Sandy on a Disney cruise ship!

Being an uncle many times over!

Saw Radiohead in concert in Mexico City two days in a row, discovered a paradise beach outside the ruins of Acapulco and camped near an area where UFO spottings are common (but not the night I went xD)

Teach, Learn, Share

Couchsurfing is a way to get under the skin of a certain people and find out what makes them tic. It helps you learn how and why they do what they do and think what they think.

What I Can Share With Hosts

We love to cook and I can make my host a delicious Mexican or vegetarian meal with limited ingredients. We love to experiment and be creative!

We can also tell share stories and experiences and talk about our unique histories! We can teach Spanish and English, too.

Countries I've Visited

Brazil, Costa Rica, Greece, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Israel, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, Nicaragua, Puerto Rico, Saint Martin (French part), Turkey, Virgin Islands, U.S.

Countries I've Lived In

Mexico, United States
