"The world is a book, and those who do not travel ready only one page" Saint Augustine
"We travel, initially, to loose ourselves; and we travel, next, to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again- to slow down and get taken in, and fall in love once more." PICO IYER "why we travel"
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
When visiting a friend in Europe we visited old friends, extended family, friends of friends, friends of the families and really enjoyed the more personal and cultural aspects of the experience.
I enjoy the water, beach, sun. I taught survival in the United States Armed Forces and enjoy the outdoors greatly. I enjoy traveling, reading and sports. I am interested in learning new languages, people and cultures
