I managed to hike the tallest peak in the Adirondack Mountains at age 13 and that trip started something. I always did as many road trips as I could fit in during high school and university and at 21, I studied abroad in Spain. That experience started my international travels and I never looked back. I did a three-year stint all over the South Pacific, Australia & New Zealand, Southeast Asia & South Korea and Japan and I haven't really stopped. Travel has shaped much of my adult life and affected me profoundly. I think I will always travel in some capacity in my life. Now I travel a lot for work, but unfortunately only in the US. My winters are reserved for international travel but slow travel is my thing now.
Live, Love, Be Courageous and Kind.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Anyway I can. I have a lot of travel knowledge for the places I have been so feel free to ask away. I've hosted when I've had a place like in LA and Puerto Rico, but I'm mostly out on the road.
North America, South America, Europe & the Caribbean! Puerto Rico has been good to me. Looking to expand my horizons and couchsurf everywhere!
