To find amazing places to hang my hammock.
About me... I find this is the hardest section to fill out. Anyways I am a reserved person that loves to travel. I grew up moving around America and the world. I currently reside in Charleston, SC working in IT. I enjoy kayaking, hammocking, spending time on the beach and all the fun events that Charleston has to offer.
It will all be okay in the end; if it's not okay, it's not the end.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I was really active hosting with my old roommate, James. He is a local ambassador and we are always hosting. The local Charleston community is getting more active. There is typically one planned meet up a month with many impromptu meetings.
When I first heard of Couch Surfing I was hesitant. I thought it was weird and was out side of my comfort zone. Once I started meeting and hosting all my fears when quickly put aside. I absolutely love couch surfing and the community. I have not surfed yet but I have hosted quite a bit. The couch surfers that I have met after head and shoulders above the average person. The local meet ups are filled with people with amazing stories and tales of travel. I have never regretted participating in Couch Surfing.
#1 interest in my life is food. I would say that I am obsessed with food. I love cooking and trying new food but it hates me. We have a love/hate relationship. I have a gluten allergy (boo wheat!) so I have to be careful. I am willing to cook for any one that I host or when I am surfing. Charleston is a wonderful town to live in with its great restaurants and events. There is nothing better in life then sharing a meal and wine with your friends
Charleston has wonderful beaches and water activities. There are a few great local beaches that I go to all the time. I love getting out on the water in a kayak or a boat. I want to learn how to sail when it gets warmer.
Camping and hiking especially in the mountains. I like camping where there is no sand. The best times when it's slightly chilly and everyone is huddled around the fire at night.
Music, Movies, and Books
I love to read and learn. I can spend hours on Wikipedia jumping from article to article. I typically read Sci fi or fantasy books.
Some of my favorite books and series are:
*Game of Throne Series- George R. R. Martin
*Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson
*Daemon and Freedom(TM) by Daniel Suarez
*Malazan book of the Fallen by Steven Erikson
*Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
My music taste is all over the board. Rock, Classical, Irish Folk and Techno.
I love watching TV shows and movies.
*Lock Stock & Two Smoke Barrels
*Game of Thrones
*Law and Order
*Master and Commander
*Kingdom of Heaven
Teach, Learn, Share
I am a history buff and love to show off Charleston.
I want to learn how to scuba dive, dance, sail and fly.
