i don't know, read my references? i was raised in the united states, moved to switzerland, and as of 2011, turkey... socially- can be shy but drinks always help... i love good conversation about things that actually matter. i love to hear people's stories- especially the couchsurfing/hitchhiking type.also can be very sarcastic, it runs in my swiss family, it's a way of showing our love..
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
i host surfers when i can, i surf with hosts when i can
surfed in the united states, croatia, czech republic, egypt, france, greece, ireland, italy, jordan, netherlands, romania, serbia, spain, sweden, switzerland, and turkey... hosted in the united states, switzerland, and turkey.
i particularly enjoyed my time surfing with the kozani community- they made a small university town beautiful and showed hospitality i hope to have myself. another highlight was christmas 2009- with a kind and loving family in a tiny tiny village in serbia- best christmas ever, hands down.
i enjoy being outside and being active (snowboarding, climbing, hiking, possibly surfing, less of the city life...), reading, philosophy, creative low-budget traveling, hitchhiking, bourbon, dancing with close friends, live music... learning more about social justice and community and turkey and turkish... i like asking myself/being asked difficult questions. i love the mountains and the ocean. and laughing is important to me. and (proper) pizza is pretty great.
