Travel throughout Eastern Europe for most of the summer!
I'm a Jamaican - American who lives in Oslo, Norway. I moved here 10 years ago, and love living in Europe because of the close proximity to other exotic locations.
Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I use hosts and hosts use me. Win-win. Awesome!
I've only couch surfed once in Prague, Czech Republic. Couch surfing is a different experience from hostelling and or staying in backpacker hotels. I haven't done it enough to decide whether it's 100% for me, but the prospect of hanging out with a local who can show/tell you the ins and outs of their city is definitely a bonus of the couch surfing experience! I stayed in Italy years ago with two lovely girls I had as pen pals for years. When I finally met them they didn't feel like "strangers", but like old friends (which they indeed were!:). I hope to have the same feeling with any future hosts and surfers of my own couch/mattress.
Filmmaking is my adsolute passion. I work as a producer, but even when it's driving me half mad it doesn't really feel like work because I'm labouring at something I love. Travelling is my second passion. I love seeing other countries and immersing myself into a new culture. I love meeting new people and being inspired by them. I also love to read and eat good food! And I'm a serious sucker for adventure sports and some real nice, sexy shoes! haha
Music, Movies, and Books
Too too many to name, but off the top of my head Movies: The Godfather, The Pianist
Music: Reggae, Dancehall, Hip Hop, Rnb, Jazz
Books: Flowers from the Storm, The Time Traveller's Wife
There are many more that I'm forgetting, but those about sum things up for now! :)
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Just having the opportunity to travel and see a bit of the world is amazing and a privilege. I realize so many people in the world will not have this opportunity and I am humbled by it!
Teach, Learn, Share
If you enjoy Reggae music I could give you some recs. You don't have to be involved in filmmaking yourself, but if you like films we could have a few interesting convos about our favs and if you'd one day like to travel to Jamaica I'll hook you up! Jamaica is 100% best enjoyed with a local to show you the ropes. :)
