About Me

CURRENT MISSION

There are a lot of great people in this world and I want to meet a lot of them and learn from them. Maybe I can meet some nice folks and show hospitality...then be invited to visit them in their home.

ABOUT ME

There is not place on earth that I do not want to visit and I have never been anywhere that I do not want to re-visit! My travels have taken me to (apx) 35 countries. Some day I hope to make all of the continents. If we meet and learn from and about differend people, we will erase our unfounded fears. Get to know "real" people...NOT the politicians! The things that I learn from surfers and from my travels make me the person that I am...

PHILOSOPHY

Accept every one, reject no one, live, learn and enjoy life. Learn something from everyone.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I accept everyone at face value. Please don't judge me because I will not judge you!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far, I've hosted four "surfers". We had good visits, toured Columbia, met with some of my friends and enjoyed getting to know each other. As a single man, it is good to spend time with other interesting people.

Interests

Give me music, art, books, theater, travel, food, wine, good coffee, conversation...people...really enjoy a good massage (I give a good massage also.)

I enjoy being nude while I am home, so if you are offended, I don't think that you would enjoy being here. Remember, I have only one bed that must be shared and I do sleep nude...fyi...

Everyone is accepted at face value. I do not care if you are gay, asexual or what...I DO NOT enjoy the companion ship of "avid, rabid Republicans"! (They scare me!!)

Music, Movies & Books

Enjoy anything to do with travel! Not into super "action" films... ROOM WITH A VIEW was super, as was Enchanted April. Did NOT like THE HELP...In a movie, I want to be entertained and to be moved emotionally...MARIGOLD HOTEL was excellent!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

My travels have been amazing...when I was a child, I had no idea that there was such a big, bright wonderful world outside my front door. All I had to do was take the first step and get going. Several years ago I spent time in a monastery where I loarned a great deal about being a spiritual being. All in all, it was a good experience. Another amazing thing...I attended a friends wedding in Bulgaria...what a unique experience! Loved it and hope to attend other weddings of other traditions.

Teach, Learn, Share

People are people where ever they are. We all want to be appreciated and listened to. I enjoy talking as well as listening. In a foreign country, I want to learn the way of life for the locals folks...how THEY do things, to learn about their culture and to expand my friendship circle.

What I Can Share With Hosts

Friendship, southern hospitality, sitting on my balcony drinking wine, listen to good music...I will be happy to show you around Columbia and some places in South Carolina.
