About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I'm really living the best life I can think of because if I could think of something better, I'd go live it!..............Oh and solve all the rubix cubes I come across!

ABOUT ME

I Live to Travel! I am becoming a nomad, and will live an extraordinary life from this point on. A person with enough friends will never be homeless, unless he chooses to, 8). Sleep is always free, I just close my eyes and do it. But a good couchsurfing host is priceless!! I think of myself as as easy going as can be. I am happy to go with the flow and just enjoy whatever simple things are in front of me. I get along with and accept everyone. The more people I have met while traveling the more I realise how similiar we all are no matter where we come from. Traveling has changed my view on the world very much, and brought me to a new outlook on what I should do with my future. I have some hitchhiking videos, check them out!

PHILOSOPHY

I just try to live to enjoy the simple things. I also try to think of things in an unconventional way but I don't think i'd be able to explain all my views quickly. Favorite quote, "the world is like a book and those who haven't travelled have only read one page." st. augustine

Interests

Self Actualization

Music, Movies & Books

I am interested in anything interesting i guess. I listen to a variety of music and enjoy non fictional books. I bought Lucille, my guitar in Philippines and have been learning for one year, and it has really become my passion!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Boat Hike or Crew (findacrew.net), Australia to Africa, Africa to Portugal. I'm on the road now 4 years and the road provides all. Adventure, education and even love.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can never tell ahead of time what things i can teach or learn before a surf, i know i need to learn almost everything, but some how i usually manage to teach something as well.

What I Can Share With Hosts

My full attention & kindness. Oh and a million dollars, cuz I'm guessing that's why cs added this to bribe people... (Funny after I wrote this I noticed CS changed this head line which before said 'what I can offer my host' I guess they also realized that was a bogus headline...)

Countries I've Visited

Turkey

Countries I've Lived In
