About Me

I used to have a long list of who i will host and why.. but i will summerize.. 1 person at a time. someone super cool who wants to contribute not just use CS to mooch your way across the world. someone who reads my profile and finds a common interest to connect on. someone who writes a personalized good letter. someone with HOSTING references( that means you host others). someone who looks interesting to spend time with. normally 2 days only. impress me.


I'm a scenery junkie. My work and art is videography and photography.You can see my webpage here www.taragoldenvideos.strikingly.com
On instagram I am flyinggato
I love visiting the most stunning places on earth. I love nature, hiking, meeting new people and exploring new places.
I am a tour guide.
I might give you a discounted rate on a tour but probably not a free one, as its what I do for a living.


magic carpet

you have a magic carpet
that will whiz you through the air
to maine or spain or africa
if you just tell it where

so will you let it take you
where you have never been before
or will you buy some drapes to match
and use it on your floor?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosted, surfed, made new friends, learned important life lessons and about everything in between.
And yeah, I have had a couple less than fantastic experiences, too. That is why I am picky. If I think there is an chance of a less than great experience with you( thats why references are so important) I'll usually pass.

Quite a bit.


travel, history,storytelling , poetry, photo and video work,hiking, exploring, gorgeous places, interesting people, cats, reading, history,animals, aromatherapy, healthy food, learning and growing. I am also doing aerial imagery. My new thing is renting tents and camping gear but I am not allowed to have the link on CS.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm an avid reader. I always have a book and I also very much enjoy audio books. I do not watch TV.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Kalalau by kayak, foot and dropped off in the ocean to swim in with a cardboard box. Last trip out the sherpa stole my food and I went out in winter surf on a jet ski.

I made a documentary film called Peace Walker, shot over an 1100 walk through Scotland and England.If you have Amazon Video prime you can watch it free.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I try my best to be a good guest. What I can share depends on a few factors: how long I am staying, how much time I have with my host and their home and how flush my bank account currently is.

It is nice to take my host out for lunch, or make them a yummy healthy meal.
Maybe I can take some beautiful professional photos of you, your home, or your pet.
Maybe I'll bring a small gift.
Maybe I can recite a poem I wrote that will make you smile.
Just as I like guests best who want to contribute something to my home, I will try to contribute to yours.
