Join Couchsurfing to see Mark’s full profile. It’s free!
To see as much of the world as possible and to create some amazing stories while I do it. There is so much to learn about the world before we can improve it, and the only way to learn is to do.
Hey! My name is Mark and I currently studying abroad in Barcelona, Spain. I'm in my 3rd year at Boston College in the United States. I am a fun loving guy and I'm always looking for my next adventure wherever it may be. I'm exciting, talkative, and sociable and very outgoing. I love to travel, but never as a tourist. I'm easy going, relaxed, low-maintenance and very cultural. I have a deep appreciation for all things different and I want to experience everything.
My personal philosophy is Live, Love, Learn, and have fun doing it!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
As a student currently traveling all I have to offer is myself. However, what that means is sharing my culture, my personality, and my stories with the people I have the opportunity to meet.
I am new to couch surfing but hope to add to this soon!
I like sports, music, movies, theater. I lOVE travel. There isn't any place I don't want to go and the more off the beaten path the better. I aim to serve so I'm big into volunteering and am considering the peace corps.
Music, Movies, and Books
I love music. I sing in several choirs so I like everything from classical to contemporary. More importantly if I can dance to it, it's good. I like pop, whatever is on the radio, I love techno beats. Hip/Hop and rap when they are done tastefully. I even enjoy musicals as I used to participate in them. Movies are my passion. I'll watch any movie and I love being up to date on what's coming out. My favorites from this past year were Slumdog Millionaire and Milk. I love to read, I actually enjoy everything from non-fiction to thrillers. I just finished reading a book on the future of Africa but my next book is Dan Brown's latest novel.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
This past year I took a trip to the Vatican with my singing group. I had the opportunity to sing mass in St. Peter's Basilica with an audience from the Pope himself! I'm not a catholic but this was a beautiful experience that I will never forget!
Teach, Learn, Share
I want to teach others not to hate, fear, or disrespect Americans. I want to teach others that people from all parts of the world can be kind or ignorant. I want to teach others about growing up in a multicultural household, and share with them my knowledge of other parts of the world. I want to learn about their lives, their history, their careers. I want to know about their cities and their countries, and most importantly I want to share everything I learn with my loved ones back home who don't have the opportunity to travel for themselves.
