I've recently settled into a work-life routine where I work for a year and then take three months off to travel. This is my second year on this cycle and I'm loving it! I have aggressive traveling goals and couchsurfing gives me the opportunity to meet locals and learn about local hospitality. I'm the house "dad" to a home of six people in Portland, Or, so I have a lot of experience with guests and sharing space.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Airbnb and Hotels are so sterile when traveling. I've definitely had jobs where I haven't left the hotel room except to wake up and go to work, so couchsurfing definitely allows me to meet locals, stay costs, and enjoy my trip that much work.
Current travel plans are:
1. Finland from 9/05/17-9/23/17
2. Amsterdam from 9/13/17-9/15/17
3. Iceland from 10/3/17-10/10/17
4. Peru from 11/05/17-11/25/17
- video games

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Spectacularly? I recently jumped off a 300 foot tall bridge into an icy Oregon river.
More low key? Created a fun and loving home for six adults that we're all proud of.
