My wife, Taisha, and I are taking an 8 day road trip through Iceland June 15-23. We rented a Happy Campers van and are looking to connect with locals for tips and perhaps places to park and sleep/ rest/ hangout. We plan to bring some unique Minnesota gifts for those who host us-- Root Beer Schnapps, local craft beer and snacks, etc. and really thrive on meeting new people and sharing stories and experiences.
*** Note: We are liberal and did not vote for Donald Trump. We work in healthcare and education, two institutions his current regime is actively trying to dismantle and destroy. E.L.E. = Everybody Love Everybody. ***
I'm a laid back, fun-loving guy who enjoys vibrant social scenes and good beer. I absolutely love to travel and want to experience as many cultures and places as I can in this short time we are all allotted here on Earth.
I love to learn about history and culture-- whether at a museum, archeological site, national park or even a local soccer match. When traveling I seek authentic experiences and avoid touristy things. Rather, I spend my time and money on experiences and learning how locals do things.
Nothing ever happens unless you swing the bat.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I am planning on getting as many people as I can involved as I've made some good friends all across Europe, Ireland and Costa Rica as well as throughout the United States and Canada.
Lots of great times in Puerto Rico and Costa Rica!
Sports, music, history, culture, beer, good times and burritos.
Music, Movies, and Books
Ska and punk music, great books like "Catch 22" and "The Fountainhead," shows like Arrested Development and movies in a similar vein of The Royal Tenenbaums and Rushmore.
If it means something to the person or people who created it I deem it good and worth a listen, look or gander.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Temple of Poseidon in Greece- brilliant blue waters, history coming alive...
Castles across Ireland and Europe...
Hiking Corcovado National Park in Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula...
Canoe and hiking trip to Glacier National Park in Montana and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in the U.S. and Canada...
Soccer (futbol) matches in Spain, Italy and Greece...
Andech's Monastery near Munich...
Everywhere-- the beauty of the world and her inhabitants is an inherent reason to pursue peace, love and good karma!
Teach, Learn, Share
I know Ireland like I know that one 9 year old shirt in my closet. I've got tips, contacts and sound advice for anyone who asks for it.
I have been all over Europe(my profile is incomplete) as well as the U.S., Puerto Rico and Costa Rica. I am always happy to pass along advice, opinions and scattered anecdotes so don't be shy in asking for any of the above.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I love meeting people, trying new things and exploring. I try to be generous with my hosts as they have been with me! Plus I don't snore.
