Sailboat DIY & language practice
I am working on ways to "travel in place" and continue to expand my world as I have a full time job and happy life in Oakland. I'd also like to return some of the hospitality I've received while surfing, I'm into the karma of couch surfing.
I live on a sailboat and can potentially host you on my second sailboat which is currently in project mode. I am more likely to accept your request if you express active interest in giving me a hand with a sailboat restoration project and/or can help me stay connected to the languages I've learned while traveling: Spanish, Portuguese and French.
I bike everywhere, so it helps if you have a means of transportation. My marina is about a 15-20 walk from the BART train station. I have an extra bike that you can probably use if I host you.
Live simply and always carry a pen.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
From Barcelona to Boston and Barcelona to Brasilia & beyond -- CS communities have made my time in new places infinitely better.
50+ sunscreen, romance languages, talking to strangers, BIKES, sailboats, public health, art, politics, writing, videography, tango, homemade food, exploring cities (ect!)
- language exchange
Music, Movies, and Books
I *especially* like reading fiction that takes place in places I travel and music that fuses different cultural traditions
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Hiking Morro da Urca to watch the sunset over Rio de Janeiro, motorcycle ride around Porto (impossible to choose just 1!!!)
Teach, Learn, Share
Language exchange (if you are a native Spanish, Portuguese, French speaker) and help on boat projects.
