Currently traveling in South America with my best friend!
my travel blog of photos and original poems from an extended road trip last Summer/ Autumn:
I'm from Portland, Oregon, USA, a utopia of mild weather, easy living, good food and creative minds!
I've spent the last 5 years traveling nearly constantly all over the States and Europe, with a few stops to live and work in New York, Los Angeles and Portland.
Life is sometimes unbelievable.
When traveling, for me, it is most important to go deep in a place, to get to know a place past what it tries to present itself as.
The best ways I have found to do this are avoiding busy tourist areas, exploring parks, grocery stores and hidden alleys, and connecting with local people. Being a part of the Couchsurfing community is such a good way to get to know local people and get to a genuine feeling of a place, the spirit of it.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
The times I got to stay with local people across the US and overseas have been amazing! It has always deepened my experience of a place so much to connect with someone and view a place through their unique lense of experience, rather than just passing through. I've since hosted a few travelers through this site and many others through offline connections and it's always a fun experience to get to show someone around and be refreshed by their impression of your city.Every experience has been unique and special, and I've ended up in some incredible and unlikely situations!
