About Me

CURRENT MISSION

See as much of the world as I can and really live.

ABOUT ME

I like traveling and having adventures with my friends, I don't like working or staying in the one place for too long. Started traveling in the start of 2008 and haven't stopped since.

I don't drink or smoke and I am a vegetarian.

PHILOSOPHY

If you knew for certain that you had a terminal illness, if you had little time left to live you would waste precious little of it. Well I'm telling you, you do have a terminal illness, it's called birth, you don't have more than a few years left, no one does, so be happy now without reason or you never will be at all.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have mainly been hosted but I have had the pleasure of hosting one person when I finally stopped traveling for a short period of time. I also spread the word of couchsurfing to anyone that will listen.
