About me right now: I'm on a round-the-world trip starting in Cuba for two months then off to Dubai, Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Mongolia, Nepal, Bali, Philippines, Isreal, and then I'm not sure where to go for August (suggestions?? :)
Ten years ago I did this in Europe and most of it was through Couchsurfing which made it 10x incredible because I got to meet and befriend locals of each city. And now 10 years later, here I am celebrating my new decennial tradition! :)
About me overall: I'm a bit of a nomad with the heart of a New Yorker.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've been couchsurfing since it's early inception back in 2007. From Greece to Argentina... It's been a life-changing ride.
Travel, film, outdoors, beaches, hiking, eating, cooking, etc.
- outdoor activities
Music, Movies, and Books
I watch too many movies, read too many books, and listen to too many songs to even think up of a list of my favorites!
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Atlas mountain of Morocco.
Rio Celeste in Costa Rica.
Burning Kouch 2012 @ Orient Point.
Shooting a shotgun for the first time (I can't help it, I'm American and it was fun!)
La Merce in Barcelona
Running outside through the 2007 Oswego snow blizzard
Road trip from Vegas into Utah through its amazing parks and natural structures (it was like being on another planet)
Playa/Rio Rincon in the Dominican Republic - where we canoed through mangrove tree crystal clear river, swam in the river/beach, sipped on recently knocked down coconuts and feasted on freshly caught lobster
Sitting at the top of the steps of Casa de la Musica in Trinidad, Cuba, listening/watching live salsa music/dancing
Scuba Diving in Bay of Pigs
Learned how to make fish curry in Myanmar
Climbed the tallest sand dune in Mongolia - takes hours and feels like you're going up a stair master in the highest setting.
Rode a horse through the Mongolian valleys
Bangkok floating market with locals
Eating shaved ice in Korea
Teach, Learn, Share
Never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience.
