About Me

CURRENT MISSION

only this moment

ABOUT ME

I am not so queer as a three-dollar bill though some may think I am slightly nutty. I will laugh at just about anything and talk to myself in awkward silences. I am easy going and down for meeting up with friendly & lovely people...

PHILOSOPHY

"The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry."

-Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am known for compulsively offering people places to stay...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

couchsurfing has consistently been the most rewarding part of my travels. It is about getting to the roots, meeting the people and becoming friends that makes couchsurfing such an amazing experience. Over and over again I am astounded and humbled by the kindness and generosity of others... honestly, I cannot see myself traveling again without doing couchsurfing!!
