Join Couchsurfing to see Michael’s full profile. It’s free!
I am an easy-going fun guy who has many interests and gets along with all sorts of people. I think I have an open mind, and strive to better myself as a person. I have traveled, and it is a real passion of mine - I crave to experience as much of life and what this world offers. I tend to get along with the traveling type :-)
Note: I was born and spent most my life living in Montreal Canada and only recently moved to St. John's Newfoundland (Oct 2015).
Discover, experience, learn, share, enjoy, have fun along the way, and treat others as you'd like to be treated. I think that covers most of it?
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
CS is a great concept. How come I didn't think of it first? ;-) Definitely contact me for info about Montreal (or any of the places I visited if you like) and to meet up to show you around. I know my hometown Montreal quite well and enjoy showing it off to visitors :-) As for hosting, it depends on timing and other variables, but it could work ... drop me a line with details and we can see ...
Couch surfing is a unique way to visit a place. I used it in South America, Europe, and New York and it was great. Am very excited about the idea, I think it is an amazing opportunity to meet some good people, enjoy some time, help a traveler, or exchange some stories, ideas, tips.
travel (there are not many places I wouldn't go visit), music (all sorts), photography, science, the environment, sports (especially ice hockey, tennis, football/soccer), cooking, reading, dancing, chess, salsa, etc
I kind of like lots of things. I hate bowling though.
- scuba diving
- rock climbing
Music, Movies, and Books
I love music. I grew up on Classic Rock (Beatles, Zepplin, Doors, Who, Pink Floyd, etc) but I very much enjoy all sorts of tunes. Rock, Alternative, Rap, Hip Hop, Dance, Ambient, Blues, Reggae, Latin, etc
I read a lot, mostly nonfiction. Seeing how I have many interests, my books follow the same range: science, business, psychology, history, economics, philosophy, etc
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Have done loads of amazing things. While traveling I have tried sky diving, white water rafting, caving, canyoning, rock climbing, scuba diving, hiking, glacial hiking, mountain biking, paragliding, abseiling down waterfalls, etc. Have been in rain forests, mountain ranges, deserts, canyons, big cites, small towns ... I love it all :-)
Teach, Learn, Share
Am always open to sharing what I know and have learnt. I enjoy learning very much, so I may throw in some questions as well ;-)
I am very much into photography and am always looking for subjects. If it interests you to do a shoot with me, let me know! You can check my photography portfolio website here: www.ritterphotos.com
