About Me

Hey my name is Ethan Hughbanks, and I am a junior at Purdue University in Indiana. I have a deep passion for adventure, travel, and adrenaline. I'm a really easy-going guy and can get along with just about anyone. I love people and I enjoy observing how some cultures are different than others. I definitely don't want to be in American culture and would much prefer being surrounded in new cultures. I'm extremely close with my family and have one twin sister.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

This summer I decided to take my love for adventure to the next level and just backpack through Europe. Only issue is I am a broke college student. I am looking for an affordable way to travel through Europe, but also stay safe. Additionally, I want to immense myself in a new culture and meet some cool people.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love pretty much all kinds of music. Most notably the Chain-smokers, Twenty One Pilots, G-Eazy, Cold play. I also have about 300 movies in my personal collection and love horror, comedy, action, dramas, pretty much anything. (Even when I get dragged into a Rom-Com by my sister).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My family took a vacation to the state of Maine one year and I talked my mom and sister into skydiving with me. It was beautiful seeing the ocean on one side and the vast greenery and mountains on the other. It was such a cool experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

I want to teach my host that life is more than just going to work, making money, and simply getting through, I want to connect with my hosts personally and tell them stories that I've experienced and listen to stories they have experienced. I want to learn what experiences they hope to have and then find out more about myself and what I hope my future contains. I want to learn all about their culture and who they are as people and their hopes, dreams, and aspirations, and in return I want to share a bit about me and gain knowledge about myself through my hosts.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I am high on life and just looking to have a good time. I understand that life can bring people down sometimes and it gets hard, but I can provide an uplifting, encouraging, and fun time.
