About Me

*9/2023 update* I typically use this profile when I'm traveling with my bestie, Hannah but am currently traveling solo. I will update my profile to reflect whether it is just me or the both of us.*

Hi! my name is Matthew and I'm a nomadic traveler out enjoying the world!

(Vegan) foodie who enjoys design, modern art, movies/documentaries, laughing, hiking, swimming, yoga, meditation, attending ceremony (cacao/Reiki/etc.), star gazing, and all the 'little' things in life.

I enjoy solitude in my travels, but always look forward to socializing and getting to know couchsurfing hosts!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want the unique experience of meeting locals and getting to know the area rather than just being tourists.
