About Me

Hi! My name is Jake and I am a 20-year-old explorer from the United States. I am a curious and open-minded person who loves to travel and see new cultures and communities. I am laid back, enjoy a good laugh, and am very eager to step outside my comfort zone and hopefully build meaningful relationships that will last a lifetime. I love meeting new people, seeing new cultures, and finding experiences off the beaten path. I'm open to new experiences (don't knock it till you try it ) because I think experiences are worth far more than material possession.

I'm a very active person and enjoy sports, especially soccer (football), and watersports alike. I also love to read (always up for a book recommendation or trade) and write. Photography has been a growing passion of mine over the past couple of years and I am very excited to bring my camera along to document my journey.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I fell in love with traveling at a young age thanks to my father. Instead of yearly trips to the same places over and over again, he would use vacations to take us all over to see and experience the world. The fondest memory I have of these trips is either biking along to German coast in Warnemünde or visiting the San Felipe del Morro Fortress in Puerto Rico. In addition to those wonderful places, I have been all over both the Caribbean and Western Europe. I'm hoping that not only can I continue to expand my knowledge of these regions, but I also want to see the other parts of the world I have not been to yet.
