About Me


I love an adventure! I also love meeting people along the way. So much to learn from different cultures. I am looking forward to meeting new folks.


I am a middle age guy exploring his dream of traveling to different countries, meeting new people and experiencing different cultures. With each new trip, I learn more about others and myself. I took up photography at age 50 and love exploring new sites with my camera in hand.


Everyday is a gift. Make the most of it!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I enjoyed a three week vacation in Ontario, Canada where I stayed with seven different couchsurfing hosts. I was blown away with the hospitality I was shown! I am definitely hooked on couchsurfing! I cannot host in my current situation but sure appreciate those who have "paid it forward" by being great hosts!


Exploring cultures, exploring food of different cultures. I have taught both Music and Art. I love exploring the Arts of different countries. I took up photography at age 50 and have fallen in love with the art form. Check out my travel photos at https://www.instagram.com/michaelthomas.photo/ I learn something new with every photographer I meet and every photo project I take on.
