Join Couchsurfing to see David’s full profile. It’s free!
I am easy going, curious, relaxed and am always up for good conversation over a glass of wine. I am a nomad traveling the world since 2011, an adventure that began more by accident than design. I love learning about different cultures, finding for myself the reality of the world, and finding the reality of myself through travel.
I am a traveler, dancer, artist, engineer, musician and accidental mystic.
My style of travel has changed many times over the years. At the moment I mostly linger in each location for several months in order to learn of each culture in greater depth.
