My name is Micah---www.micahalfaro.com
For the past 2 years I've exceeded my imagination to its furthest extent not only through traveling, but through the comradery and experiences I've had with individuals around the world. These experiences would have never came to life if I had never decided to step outside of what was comfortable and accepted. A one-way plane ticket to Thailand wasn't to be rebellious, but to simply experience a new culture, again, to get uncomfortable. Deciding to hitchhike across Canada wasn't because I couldn't afford a plane ticket to California, it was because I wanted an experience to remember, a story to share with others.
And that's really what it comes down to. Getting a little uncomfortable for the means of personal growth. For so long I've wanted to be an idea to others rather than pursuing what I believed I wanted for myself. I'm still trying to figure this whole thing out, meanwhile, perspective from others has been the gift of life.
"Those who say they can, and those who say they can't, are both usually right."
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
From college dorm rooms in San Diego, to Penthouse Condos in Bangkok, CS has been an unbelievable experience!
Music seems to be my greatest interest, after all, wherever there's music there is usually a good time
Music, Movies, and Books
Favorite movies: Good Will Hunting and Pursuit of Happiness
Love the blues! As a guitar player, I love paying guitar licks from old blues tracks. I also love the classics; Beatles, ACDC, Led Zeppelin, Frank Sinatra, and many others.
Books. Where to start? I love reading non-fiction, personal growth and philosophy books. Some favorites are "How To Win Friends and Influence People," "Think and Grow Rich," and "As A Man Thinketh."
