Wants to Meet Up

Join Couchsurfing to see Michael’s full profile.
I am a relentless optimist and avid conversationalist. A bit over three years ago I packed up my life in Boston and moved to Dublin to explore the exciting unknown. A couple cold, wet years later I packed up again, did some biking in the jungle, and settled in the lovely (figuratively) city of Cologne.
*Update - I'm on holidays with my feet, backpack, and ice cream addicted girlfriend. Two scoops pleeeeeeease.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
As a surfer: I like to travel but more importantly love to meet people. I find it much more rewarding to walk the streets of a city from the eyes of a resident than spend hours in museums.
As a host: Getting out and about in my living space is what I do best! Finding and cultivating my favorite spots is a true passion, and something I love to share with others. If what you are looking for is a relaxed environment, some good conversation, and plenty of suggestions for things to do, my couch is your spot. Would love to join for a beer or share a home cooked meal!
**At the moment I live in a very small shared apartment with barely enough free space for a yoga mat, so cannot host, but it is definitely in my plans for the future.
I make a bomb Tempeh Bolognese. Your taste buds will quiver with the epitome of mastery.
I attempt to bike to as many destinations as possible.
I like my dance floors deep, my reggae in the sun, and my jazz with a gnarly set of drums
A meal with less than two types of vegetables is simply incomplete.
- reggae music
- mountain biking
- house music
- craft beer
- vegetarian cooking
- cycle touring
- road biking
Music, Movies, and Books
Music: If its got some rhythm I'm probably good to go
Movies: I like films that focus on the space, not the content. (And shit with aliens in it)
Books: I read tons of dystopian sci-fi, but am currently reading The Jungle Book! David Mitchell is a bo$$
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Mountain biking in the Moab Desert with my kickass sister!
What I Can Share with Hosts
I am an overly enthusiastic cook, thus I'll without a doubt offer both food and drink. As an avid hobbyist, I love learning about other people's interests and how we relate. Unless your single passion is sports, we'll find something to share.
