New to Austin. I've got a few long time friends here, but also looking to grow my circle, and find a few local explorers.
I was previously living in New York, took a few months off to go to Nepal, SE Asia, and ended up here.
I quit my Job in 2011 to hike, live, help, and learn from a list of places I always wanted to get to know better. I went to South America, France, and Spain, with short stops in Israel and Tunisia to visit friends. Then I went to Japan and learned some Japanese and met a lot of great people everywhere I went.
Before I settle in, if I ever do, there's a lot I have to see first, and many many people to meet.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Attending CS activities, showing people around the city.
I made a friend in Argentina who recommended it to me. I've been hosted by a few new friends in France who were great to get to know and with whom I still keep in touch. I've been to lots of activities in France, Japan, a few in South America.
Meeting people on the road, seeing the landscape by land travel and hiking, roaming aimlessly in cities, eating everything in my way, picking up languages, and getting to know local music and neighborhoods.

Teach, Learn, Share
I've done two tours of South America, over a year's worth of travelling and living. I'm also fluent in Spanish and very familiar with Latin America so I would be able to help with questions and suggestions for travel throughout the region. I've quit my job, sold all my stuff, and hit the road more than once, in case you need any encouragement to do the same.
