To find adventure, out smart the bad guy, kiss the girl, and look fantastic while I do it. :D Or, ya know, travel a little. :P
I'm a laid back college student. I'm almost never in class. :D I love playing guitar and doing martial arts, reading and hearing/telling really good stories. Good conversation is amazing and it leaves me feeling lighter afterward.
Three basic points about how I like to live:
1. Why not?
2. Life is too short not to look your best and put on a show.
3. You've gotta have terms. Know what you will and won't accept.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've hosted a few people and I've surfed a bit. I'm hoping to do more surfing while I'm traveling haha. I love to meet new people in new places and this site is amazing for that. :)
I've hosted a few times and I'm out surfing right now.
Martial Arts- Eskrima
Camping, but I don't go as much as I'd like
- martial arts
Music, Movies, and Books
Umm, okay it isn't a movie (all though there were a few) but I LOVE Doctor Who. I'm a total whovian, even my screen name comes from DW. The Godfather 1 and 2 were both amazing. And, almost any movie with Clint Eastwood is awesome. I also love quirky and indie movies.
Music, I like a pretty wide variety Indie is always fun and Rock, Classic Rock, Blues (mostly old Delta blues, though), Jazz (JOHN COLTRANE! FRANK SINATRA! MILES DAVIS!), Classical, Indian, Not much metal and only a little hip hop.
Books are amazing. I love Paulo Coelho and Oscar Wilde. Wlat Whitman's poetry and Jack Kerouac. Right now, I'm reading Casanovas personal memoirs, and theyre really good. Also, I loved Machiavelli's "The Prince," and Sun Tzu's "Art of War."
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I was blown up, haha. That's kinda my go to answer. Ummm, I was "smuggled" over the Swiss border, twice. Ran out of money in Germany so I played my guitar a bit and made 30 Euros. I've had a few REALLY close calls where I left going "Wow, I'm alive...and I'm not hurt. I love my life!"
Ask me about the homeless woman. Or, the Sheriff. Or, camping in the Kaiser wilderness. Or...well, any story. haha.
Teach, Learn, Share
If I can, while I'm on the road, I'd like to teach my martial arts.
What I Can Share with Hosts
When I'm staying with a host I cook and do the dishes to thank them for letting me crash with them.
