About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel the world!

ABOUT ME

My name is Jason but my friends and family used to all call me Huckle when I started couchsurfing due to my sense of adventure, failure to ever want to wear shoes, and passion for slowly floating down rivers!

PHILOSOPHY

Helping others helps yourself! Best way to live is for the personal satisfaction of seeing others smile :-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have hosted a number of awesome people from multiple continents while living in Korea and China, and try my best to keep them well fed, comfortable and entertained.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have surfed in Poland, Russia, Finland, Estonia, Indonesia, Korea, Ireland, Spain, Andorra, Japan, United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, Singapore, Germany, Egypt, Bulgaria, Israel, Poland, Mexico, Greece, Australia and Macedonia. Have met up with CS'ers in many other countries who have made great guides and even better friends!

Interests

Anything fun and adventurous! I love trying new things! It keeps me young! Trying to learn new languages and be a more productive person! Love hiking and extreme sports. I really like the idea of sitting on a beach and relaxing but usually can't last an hour and have to walk to both ends of the beach and climb whatever I can nearby.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'll give anything a go! Like many travelers, The Alchemist is one of my all time favorites! I like to read books/stories about the regions I am traveling in at the time.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One... Impossible! Here are some! From floating down the Amazon River to jumping out of a plane 20,000ft over my hometown of Niagara Falls; and from exploring jungles and finding ancient ruins, to spotting lion cubs in the Serengeti, to hiking Everest and diving the Great Barrier Reef; I've seen and done some pretty amazing things across 130 countries and counting.

Teach, Learn, Share

I enjoy meeting people that share the same vigor for life that I do. People that are adventurous and willing to try new things. People with an open mind and open heart.

What I Can Share with Hosts

An insight into my culture and the many things I've learned throughout my journey, especially how I have done so much for so cheap!
