About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ROAD TRIP AROUND SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AND THE CENTRAL COAST

ABOUT ME

Up-for-almost-anything, spontaneous and easygoing - I am a fan of adventure and extremes.

PHILOSOPHY

Always evolving. To borrow some words:

If you're procrastinating on writing your first great novel: “How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.”
(Henry David Thoreau)

If you're feeling lonely: "Develop an interest in life as you see it; the people, things, literature, music - the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself" - Henry Miller

Presently, I can't see too far beyond my next plane ticket and the exploring and adventures it will bring.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Have surfed in Bangkok, Sydney and Melbourne. Have yet to host!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Have met some seriously charming individuals who made me feel comfortable in a new place with no shortage of good stories!

Interests

I am interested in different cultures, food, photography, documentary film, dancing, books, the outdoors (especially hiking!) and doing how the locals do. And traveling of course.

Music, Movies & Books

Big fan of the dark comedy and documentary films. Last movie I really enjoyed in the theatre was Boyhood by Richard Linklater.

Currently reading:
A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson
Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly by Anthony Bourdain

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Some amazing travel moments include: getting lost and living with a hill-tribe in Northern Thailand, climbing Mount Kinabalu at sunrise in Borneo, celebrating Thai New Year in Chiang Mai, crashing a Cambodian village wedding in Chi Phat, mountain-biking through the Cardamom Mountains, crossing the Cambodia-Vietnam border on motorbike and hiking the infamous Kalalau Trail in Kauai!

Teach, Learn, Share

Some of the things I am especially interested in learning more about at present include: wine, motorcycling, long-distance hiking, learning spanish, working on a luxury yacht, traveling Central and South America, digital photography and travel blogging.

Some of the things I can share: stories from travel in Europe and Southeast Asia, living abroad and teaching English in Taiwan, going on a working holiday in Australia, planting trees for money in the Canadian wilderness, skydiving, surviving Grad School.
