I live in the busy suburb of Somerville, right in the Boston/Cambridge area. I love to travel around, but half the fun of travelling is meeting new people, wherever they are from. One of the easiest ways to do that is to is by finding ways to make those connections with people from around the world.
Just like there really is no way to truly know who you are completely until you get a perspective from the people around you, it is also just as impossible to understand where you stand in the world until you see the rest of the world around you. I have only seen a fraction of the world, but when you meet people that hail from all around the world, you understand so much of what people are-- not only from how their culture influences them-- but also just as human beings. Even from across the globe, people all have similarities, but also fascinating differences.
We-- human beings-- will always be the most interesting and intriguing things on this planet-- and the more of each other that we can meet, the better.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I love meeting people from all sorts of places in the worlds, and all kinds of lifestyles. Some of my best experiences in life have been from talking to and interacting with people I would have never encountered if I wasn't travelling. It's something I love to do, and you learn things about others that you wouldn't in any other way.
Music, literature, experiencing new cultures, and just finding out all of the new, unexpected things that life can throw our way.
Music, Movies, and Books
Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys, The Nationals, Cage the Elephant, Muse, Mumford and Sons, Guster, The Beatles, The Byrds, Keane, The Killers, Andrew Bird.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
The Aurora Borealis still must be one of the most incredible things that I have ever seen.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I hate to have to put it this way, but this is rather important. I get a lot of requests, usually several a day. I don't have many requirements, but I cannot host more than one person at a time due to the space that I have.
Probably half of the requests I get are asking for multiple people. I understand that many people are travelling together, and best of luck to you and I hope you enjoy Boston, but if you send me a request for you and your friends, it tells me you haven't bothered to read my profile or that you're simply ignoring my requirements. Typically, I just won't respond to those requests. Couchsurfing is about helping fellow travelers where you can and being part of a community, so try to actually do that by respecting potential hosts that are letting you stay with them and their needs as well.
That's all, thanks! :)
