About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Explore my love for life, the world, its people, and their culture! (Hopefully share a little of my own too!)

ABOUT ME

I'm an observer. I learn new things all the time from the world around me!

I'm always trying to better myself, and those around me (I'm something of an idealist). I'm a work-a-holic, a perfectionist, an over achiever, A.D.D. (I think), a Sailor, a multi-tasker (I do way too many things at the same time...), and a jack of all trades. I love cats. ^.^

I enjoy the little things in life. I love grocery shopping, and can spend HOURS doing this. I love people watching, and just randomly walking around.

I love SLOW TRAVELING! Traveling to me is an amazing adventure, but it's something I like to enjoy. I like to really live in some of the places I visit... at least for a little bit. Generally I don't want to stay somewhere for just one or two days unless I'm just passing through.

I HATE flying. No, not because I have a fear of flying, but because making it to a flight on time is the single most stressful thing for me.... I've already missed a flight or two >.< Not cool.

TO HOSTS: I am house trained! I shower, I put the seat down, I cook, I clean after myself, I bring my own food (and share!). If there's anything I can do to help you, I'll try to do it, but either way, I'll try to stay out of your way. The last thing I want to be for you is a hassle or a burden! I put headphones on and listen to music when I go to sleep, so you don't have to worry about bothering me when I'm asleep at any time, and I can sleep anywhere! I feel like I've written this somewhere else already, but just in case: Proof of me sleeping anywhere is in my pix, go take a look! =P

=D

PHILOSOPHY

"Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."

"El que quiere, puede." (Similar to: "Where there's a will, there's a way")

"El interés tiene pies" (Similar to: "Actions speak louder than words. Don't say it, just do it.")

If he/you/she can do it, so can I.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I try to go to meetings when I travel, I host meetings when I'm not. I've found myself traveling much more than I expected... so I haven't really had my own place to offer, but as soon as I will, I'l going to have CSers all the time!
I'm always meeting people from all over the world.. and spreading the word about CS!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I was introduced to couch surfing quite while ago... It took me some time to get involved, but that's changed now! I've met lots of people through CS, and I plan on meeting many more! So far every encounter has been one of warmth, welcome, fun, and understanding. It's definitely a unique way to travel, and live!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

AMAZING) from an opening some 10-15 meters above it • Climb the pyramid 'El Castillo' at Chichén Itzá (can't do that anymore =[ ) • Driving all the way around the Golf of Mexico • Biking through Paris and around the Eiffel Tower, unintentionally listening to music from Amelie • Meet so many good people!.. the world is ENORMOUS

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to Sail as much as possible! I'd love to teach anyone how to sail. Get me a boat and some water and I'm all yours! =P

I'd love to learn as much as possible from any martial arts students out there, and any cello players. I'd also enjoy the opportunity to spend some time learning any languages you speak that I don't! I'd also be more than willing to help you learn anything about the languages I do speak.

Food is also great, if you can cook something regional, teach me! Unfortunately I suck a memorizing things... so I can teach you how to feel things out. I cook with creativity, not recipes... More often than not, things come out pretty good!
