About Me


To finish my book, and make new friends!
Check out my writing here if you like. https://medium.com/@kavancleary


I love to meet new people! .I want to travel the world. Everyone has a story, I want to hear as many of those stories as I can.

My passion in life is writing. I'm writing a book, it should be done by the end of this year.

I fall in love with every country and place I go to. If i could I would live everywhere for a day, or maybe a year :)

I am Vegetarian ( I eat cheese and eggs, but not fish or meat) and have been so my whole life. I don't mind if you eat meat :)


To be kind and respectful to everyone I meet. I want to learn from every experience I have.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am constantly introducing people to couch surfing and the joys of surfing and hosting!


My experience has really been wonderful. I know it sounds kind of silly but I love Couchsurfing, if I had never come to this site I would not have met all the wonderful people I met. I really can't imagine not getting to be friends with the people I am friends with now :)


I spend most of my time writing and reading these days. I am in love with words! I love to talk and I love to read. Other things I love: Running, Walking, Exploring, board games, video games, history, basketball, eating, playing guitar, singing, dancing, Making electronic music, and so much more.

Anything by Haruki Murakami. Nabakov as well. Roberto Bolaño ( listening to the audiobook of 2666 right now and really loving it.). J.K. Rowling ( Harry Potter and her other stuff) George R.R. Martin. Mike Meginnis. Jonathan Safran! I'm always open to reading someone's favourite book, you can learn a lot about someone from reading their favourite book.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Honestly every time I have couch surfed it has been amazing. Just getting to make a new friends all over the world is wonderful. I love everything that is different and everything that is the same. It is all great to me. Getting lost in Hamburg for 2 hours at night in the rain was also funny :) I always said I wanted to get lost while traveling at least once and I did haha I found my way eventually though. I was never worried, just lost!
My life has been full of so many amazing things some which are long stories, and other small things that were amazing to me, but might seem small to you :)

Teach, Learn, Share

People who are really different than me. I love to learn from people who have had experiences I have never had.
I can certainly teach some guitar, and I can share my songs, or stories with you.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share some life advice about getting through very hard times and coming out feeling happier than ever.
I can share some knowledge about writing music.
I can share some stuff about writing stories as well.
