Join Couchsurfing to see Micheal’s full profile.
I love meeting new people. Planning 3 months of surfing to write a new book.
My favorite compliment was "If Louis CK was Canadian and had the heart of the Buddha, he'd be you.
I respect everyone's race, creed, religion and sexual orientation. As a white, heterosexual, middle-aged man, I can see that I am part of the problem. Tolerance is a live long journey that clears the path for those behind me.
Anything worth doing is worth overdoing (also why I never drink or do drugs)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have hosted and will host again. Currently planning three months of surfing while I write a new book.
I have hosted some great young people from all over the world. Looking forward to my own travels.
Riding motorcycles in heavy rain. Writing a perfect line.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
A tidal wave in Dominican Republic. The Aurora Borialis in Northern Alberta. A riot in San Maartin on the same day as a visit to a butterfly farm. Holding the hand of my step-father as he died. My children being born.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I plan on writing a book entitled "Around the World in 80 Poems". The plan is to write a poem about every person I meet or what we choose to do together and publish it in early 2017. This will be my third book of poetry. My hosts will, of course, get a copy of the poem and a copy of the book when it is published. Additionally, I think I am going to do a podcast during my travels and would love to interview as many hosts and friends as possible. Also, I always buy the coffee!
