To throw myself in new places and situations and learn to navigate my way through them.
Hmmm, all about me? I don't think that's possible, but a starter would be that I'm a easy going guy with a thirst for new experiences. I love learning new things and throwing myself in unfamiliar situations to see how I react. I think life is more interesting with humor and a relaxed attitude. I live in LA and I am determined to build up an immunity to road rage.
Life is only boring if you make it so. Step out of your comfort zone and enjoy the ride.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm new to couchsurfing but hope to participate more.
I have spent a lot of time crashing on couches. Strangest story has to be when I was woken up at 4 am by a train of 5-6 hookers. Apparently they were friends of the host and some of them ended up sharing the couch with me (No hanky panky mind you).
A lot. I like travelling, rock climbing, exploring, hiking, backpacking, biking, capoeira, reading, languages, want to learn surfing, want to learn scuba diving, science, animals, movies, cheese, philosophy and many more.
