About Me


I am enjoying life and going where ever it takes me.


Hi! My name is Ryan. I am a graduate at Northern Arizona University in the USA. I had the amazing experience of studying abroad in Sweden for 5 months which opened up many opportunities to travel all over Europe. I wish I had more time because there was so much more that I needed to see. This is my motivation to hopefully in a few years get right back and finish up my trip.


I just take life one day at a time and never let anything ruin my day. I always find something to counter a negative I may have if there ever is one. I live for me and everyone I am involved with. I love people as long as they love life to.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am new to couch surfing. If I had my own home I would open it up and as soon as I do anyone is welcome to come. I did couch surf as much as I could while traveling through Europe.


My first experience was for a concert and that was when I went to Herning, Denmark for the Red Hot Chili Peppers concert. I had never heard of it before then and never knew how it worked. Anders was the guys name whose couch I slept on. He was very welcoming and made my stay much easier while I was there. I got an idea of how it works so we I go home I can open up my home for couch surfers alike. I also couch surfed in Munich. This time around it def was even better. My host was very friendly and even showed us the ropes around Munich.


Sports, futbol, American football, wrestling, baseball, hockey. Snowboarding and boating with my family. Outdoors and interacting with others.

Music, Movies, and Books

I am into all sorts of music. My favorite band of all time is the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Muse, Coldplay, Modest Mouse and Incubus also. Starting to get into country music. Rap is okay as long as it is not over played. Of course no one can dislike the classics such as ACDC or Led Zepplin. All types of movies. Mainly a action and comedy type of person though. Adam Sandler movies are highly entertaining as well as the Transformers movies. I am not much of a book guy but I am trying to teach myself to like them.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Getting the opportunity to go to Europe is probably on the top of my list right behind going to Ireland.

Teach, Learn, Share

I just want to learn about other cultures and societies apart from what I have grown up in. I like hearing the views others have on the United States. My goal is to try and bring my culture to others around the world.
