Join Couchsurfing to see David’s full profile.
I was born in Sarasota, FL, USA and have lived in the area ever since. I do my best to get out of town as much as possible! My wife Tricia and I love traveling throughout the USA in our camper van, we haven't been able to travel as much internationally but now look to really explore the world as much as possible. I love hiking, biking, good food, hanging out in a coffee or tea shop, photography, anything mechanical, cars, antiques, music, history and most of all seeing something new. I love aimlessly wandering a new city, often for hours or the entire day. Sometimes no plan is the best plan. For me, there is nothing like arriving to a new town or new area, where nothing is familiar and everything is different from what you know. I live for these experiences.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I have a strong desire to experience the area I am visiting through the lens of those who live there. There are the touristy sites that one must see, but after that is done there remains so much more that most foreigners never get to experience. I want to make a connection with the people of the country, region or city I am visiting. It can be hard to meet people, especially when you are out of your element. I think this community can help create lasting friendships with people all over the world. I look forward to showing anyone around our town as well!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Went on a 14 mile hike in the highest town in the Continental USA, Leadville, Colorado.
Drove solo in the middle of winter from Florida to Colorado, going over some sketchy mountain passes covered in over a foot of snow.
Teach, Learn, Share
I love to trade travel stories! I can share my experience in the USA, please ask me anything. I love vintage and antiques, I can share quite a bit of knowledge in that field if you have any interest!

Friendship and kindness, and a place to stay when you come to Florida.
