American expat transitioning back to The United States after about a decade and a half abroad...
Looking to rediscover my own country, search for intelligent signs of life in the universe, have meaningful conversations, share meals, hear stories and a whole lot more...
PS: I'm very COVID mindful and follow all CDC recommend guidelines...
Have not received a COVID vaccine yet (as of March 24th) but plan on receiving it asap...
is creating a movie of my life I'd want to watch over and over again while 'unpacking' my 'backpack'.
Chill, down-to-earth, meditative, contemplative, camera-toting, globe-trotting soul inspired by random acts of kindness that I encounter on my journey . . .
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Couch Surfing has been an amazing platform for me to connect with my 'tribe'...
Over the years I've stayed on many couches, futons and floors and now I'm doing so 'officially' as a "Couch Surfer".
I want to meet like-minded individuals, positive people with open minds and similar tastes...
Interested in travel, music, FOOD, cooking, social gatherings, musical improv, hiking, cycling, the outdoors, learning, checking out live shows. An evening spent with candles, incense, chilling and conversation...
Photography, the arts, creativity and new ideas...
Natural healing and well being...
Working out and staying healthy...
- working out
