I am looking to meet new people from all around the world and acquire new experiences.
I am an avid traveler - I usually go it alone as I like to set my own itineraries and I hate to slow people down with my photography and writing. I have many hats and love to acquire new ones - you never know when you may need to fall back on one!! Always be prepared!!!
Live each day like it's your last!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING:
I usually like to meet for drinks and dinner but I have also hosted and surfed. I also try to go to meetings here in New York City.
I have met people in Paris and Chicago for dinner and a day out. I have also surfed in New York City before moving there as well as all over Texas just for fun. Upon arriving in NYC in 2011, a bunch of Couchsurfers were gracious enough to help me move in. Since then, I have been to numerous Couchsurfing meetings and meetups, I've hosted NUMEROUS travelers and have surfed a few times too.
My interests are in travel, music, photography, reading, writing as well as watching independent and foreign films.
Music, Movies, and Books
I typically only watch independent, foreign and documentary films.
Movies (just a few of numerous!!):
Life is Beautiful
Placebo (this is my favorite band of all time)
F. Scott Fitzgerald
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I have been to 37 cities and towns in Europe, several many times (ie. Paris 6 times). I have also been all over the United States and parts of Canada and Mexico. My passion is travel. My second passions are photographing and writing about the places I visit.
Teach, Learn, Share
I have studied 4 other languages besides English but if you don't use it, you lose it. I get around fine all over Europe but I'd like to meet people with other language skills who I can practice with. As far as teaching, I am an endless source of useless knowledge!! LOL
What I Can Share with Hosts
Endless knowledge on various subjects as well as my travel experiences. While I tend to keep to myself (I'm a bit shy), I do come out of my shell for the right person.
Countries I’ve Visited
Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Monaco, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom
