Join Couchsurfing to see Francis’s full profile. It’s free!
To live life to the fullest! The World is my Oyster, so I'm going to Get while the Gettings Good!
Im Francis, maybe we will meet and you can figure me out yourself!
I suppose I live simply for the pursuit of happiness, I'm not too complicated. How I achieve that happiness tends to change with life, I just go with it the best I can.
And in that pursuit I like to marvel at all the curious curveballs life throws at me, and maybe pitch a few curveballs myself.... Ya gotta rock it while ya got it right?
No Gods, No Masters
What's the point of Living if You cant feel Alive?
Don't piss into the wind
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I'm here to meet new people, learn, share and help out. I like having a lively home with different people. If you want to stay with me heres what you do: read my profile, see if I seem like the kind of host you'd want to stay with, then drop me a message telling me why. If you send me a generic copy /paste request, its gonna be pitched into the garbage real quick. No fakers allowed!
Also, I will only host people who have complete profiles, so fill er up!
I have been on CS for years now, though I havent always been very active. I've used couchsurfing for meeting fellow travells abroad as well as some hosting. I've been hosted by some cool peeps as well, and really had a blast.

Music, Movies, and Books
Music, music, music... It's my passion. Im one of those dudes you see in public grooving on his headphones. I can't leave the house without having something to listen to. Metal, Reggae, Punk, Classical, Jazz, Funk, Hip Hop, Hardcore, Salsa, Electronic, Ambient, Irish, Instrumental, Rock n Roll, Folk..... the list goes on and on! I appreciate most music, even if I don't like it.
With books I like Fiction, Non-Fiction, Poetry, Philosophy, Travel, Art, History, Politics, Sociology...
A few authors that stick out are Vladmir Nabokov, Irvine Welsh, Tom Wolfe, Timothy Zahn, Hunter Thompson, George Orwell, Dostoyovsky, Aldous Huxley....to name a few, but with the books in my collection always coming and going over the years I know I'm forgetting plenty
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Looked out on the Atlantic Ocean from atop a hill in my hometown, St. John's, the most eastern point in North America, and felt like I was on The Edge Of The World. Kinda surreal, and it never gets old
I was Born. There was alot of other sperm going for that egg. I beat em all to it.
Teach, Learn, Share
Teach, Learn and Share... When they ask me to fill this section out they say that: 'You have special knowledge that others will benefit from knowing'. Well maybe I do, maybe I don't, I think it's just an opinion. I can appreciate a good exchange between people as much as the next person, but it seems like CS wants me to write something meaningful and inspirational here....too much pressure, I aint doing it!
What I Can Share with Hosts
I'm an English language teacher, so I can give you English lessons! I can also cook, clean, be a hired goon...the list goes on. But mainly I can be of good company to you. I'm laid back, easy going, and down for most anything. I'm a pretty open-minded dude who is willing to try out new things, whether they are safe or otherwise!
