Currently in Ukraine. Greece over Holidays 2015... Might be able to host.
I travel with a fold-up bike and like to explore cities on it (even in winter), go to cafes and read or write, taste good local food (I'm mostly a vegetarian, but relaxed about it: I sometimes eat fish).
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I used to be more active. I feel CS has hit a growth pain since getting so big... BUT.. that said, I have personally had a fantastic experience with the people who I've both hosted and stayed with. It takes persistence, and luck, but excellent CS experiences are still possible.
I have stayed with people for short and long periods of time, and welcomed people into my home for short and long periods of time in places I've lived, from Philadelphia, LA, NYC, Barcelona, and Damascus.
Languages: love them!
biking and running; museum hopping; getting outdoors more; cool bar/restaurant hopping (when the budget permits it). languages, idiomas, lingue, llengües, langues,
- outdoor activities
Music, Movies, and Books
Some music: accoustic guitar, Arabic/Persian/Pakistani rhythms, classical piano, some opera, some jazz, classic RB. But I'm really open to other's tastes and getting a better musical "education".
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I volunteered in West Bank as a peace activist. I volunteered in inner city Philadelphia as a community organiser. I moderated discussions between Guatemalan shamans, Indian gurus, Islamic philosophers and church representatives at a Parliament of World Religions one year.
Teach, Learn, Share
- I went to film school but I'm missing huge gaps in my film knowledge, so a good movie is always an option :) but, also:
- intermediate chess
- piano 4 hands (if you have a keyboard or piano, we can download free sheet music and be playing something intermediate within 20 min - while the quiche is baking!)
- some african polyrhythms on a dumbek or any good noise making)
- being a sightseer
