I enjoy the little things in life that slow us down just long enough for us to enjoy them. I enjoy hearing stories about travel. I love life and try not to take things for granted.I want to meet new people and explore myself and the world.
Culture, food, cinema, music, history, art and technology stimulate my mind.
Get lost! You will find things you never knew existed.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I offer assistance to travelers in my area, where ever that may be. If messaged I will do my best to help out someone in need of information or advice online or over a drink.
If I am not loaded down with school work I can host
I met one of my best friends on couch surfing. She shared her part of Rome with me and let me in on all of the secrets of the neighborhood. Secrets that I share today with other CSers.
Open minded conversation, learning about cultures, food and drink, instillation art, green spaces, reading, biking, cinema, people watching, cooksurfing. I enjoy finding the hidden gems a city has to offer.
Music, Movies, and Books
Cinema: 9 1/2, Cool Hand Luke, Pierrot Le Fou, Waking Life, Life Aquatic, The Motorcycle Diaries, Vals Im Bashi, il Postino, Battle of Algiers, La Pointe Courte.
Music: Anything that encourages movement. I listen to a lot of American Folk and music from the 60's. Relaxing Indie and Rock
Books: Iron John, Born Standing up, neither here nor there, a cooks tour, Imperium.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
The Naked Philadelphia Bike Ride to promote bike safety and bring attention to how vulnerable bicyclists are to automobiles. It is what it sounds like, about a thousand people riding through the city naked on a spring afternoon. It was beautiful and freeing!
Teach, Learn, Share
The more I travel and throw my inhibitions to the wind, the more I learn how amazing people and places can be. With every trip I find myself in unknown territory and I am pleasantly surprised by the kindness of strangers.
I want to improve my Italian and knowledge of healing techniques of other cultures.
