Wants to Meet Up

Join Couchsurfing to see Chris’s full profile.
I have recently started publishing a short story anthology and would like to continue doing that. I'd also like to travel as much as possible!
I'm an easy-going guy, down-to-earth guy. I enjoy reading and writing a lot. I publish a short story anthology. I love traveling and have lived in Madrid, Spain on and off for 5 years.
I teach and translate whenever there is work available. I love meeting new people from around the world, and since I'm not working a lot at the moment, I'd be happy to host from time to time or meet for coffee and show you around San Francisco or Berkeley.
I believe in living life the way I think it should be lived, to teach
by doing not preaching. I'm an atheist, for lack of a better word-
although its a negative term. There's no word in our dictionary
for people who don't believe in Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy..
So, since there is no after-life the only thing left to do is live
this life to the fullest! Travel, study, create. Do whatever it is
that makes you truly happy.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
While living in Spain I taught in a summer camp for military
children for two weeks that was spent walking the Camino de
Santiago. I wasn't really thrilled about working for the military
but the experience of walking the Camino was unforgettable!
We took the northern route along the Bay of Biscay for most
of the time. The scenery- lush forests, mountains, small villages,
animals of every variety imaginable, the sea- was breathtaking!!
I've also traveled around Europe- France, Holland, Germany,
the Czech Republic and Austria. That was an awesome experience.
I'll never forget the trainride from Berlin to Prague- castles,
steep mountain slopes, bridges a mile high, tiny villages- it
was like traveling through a fairy tale.
But personally my greatest accomplishment has been learning
Teach, Learn, Share
I've been an ESL teacher for over 10 years and now teach Spanish as well. I love to meet new people and learn about their cultures.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I wish the "hosting availability" had more than one option! I can probably host you for a couple of nights with enough advance notice. I would also enjoy meeting up for a coffee and showing you around if you've already got a place to stay.
There is a comfortable futon bed for you in the living room.
