See the world one day at a time!
Hi there! I love to travel and help other travelers. I host more than I surf. I have more interests than time allows me to explore. How I spend my time varies depending on the week, sometimes it's reading book after book, sometimes it is learning a new musical instrument, other times it is riding my bike dawn to dusk. I am always up for an adventure and I hope you can join me for one!
I'll try anything twice.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Host, Surf, Meetup...All of the above!
Hosted a bunch of people, it has always been a great experience!
Surfed a bunch as well and love it!
Then frequently attend and sometimes lead meet ups.
Traveling (have 1 states s left, also always have another international trip coming up)
Hiking, (I love being outside and I love climbing a mountain or heading up to a waterfall, just being away hearing the birds and appreciating it all is fantastic)
Listening and playing music (Nothing beats some good tunes and sometimes I practice my guitar which I am not sure can be considered good tunes, but it's relaxing)
Learning (from reading nonfiction books, interesting education youtube channels, to practicing Spanish)
Culture (festivals, food, music, any authentic experience)
- folk music
- rock climbing
Music, Movies, and Books
Movies: Foreign movies (Motorcycle Diaries, Amelie, Caramel, Pan's Labyrinth, IP Man), really anything with a captivating plot.
Music: I listen to just about anything, but listen mostly to folk music, instrumental music, and electronic house. Also, I am always open to music I have never heard of, especially other culture's traditional music.
Books: A mix of fiction novels (The Alchemist, The Book Thief, The Fault in Our Stars, Five People you Meet in Heaven, Ishmael). Also, I read a lot of nonfiction to learn, but not cover to cover.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Was part of a mid-evil themed birthday party when I was in Ireland which was hosted in a castle. Which then turned into a whole community folk music jam. I was highly encouraged to play and did my instrumental type of style. once I finished an elderly woman said 'Oh wow, that was a great version of the scale, what a good warm up' (it wasn't a warm up).
Joined in on a Saint Patrick's day parade in Charlotte North Carolina with a very large Irish family of 250 people. Afterwards joined them for a full day of Irish festivities. Music, dancing, and cracking jokes.
Sailed around the islands of Sandusky Ohio in the summer time. Never felt so free in my life.
Watched a ton of sunsets/sunrises on beaches, top of mountains, or in downtown city cafes. If you can consider this a hobby, then it is definitely one of mine.
Teach, Learn, Share
I'd love to learn anything cultural:
-What are your traditions?
-How do people interact?
-What are the positives of life wherever you are from?
Teach: Guitar, some basic language (hello, please, thank you in a bunch of languages),
