## 80's Music Fanatic!!!! ## Ok now that's out of the way ;-)
###PLEASE Read about my couch before requesting. ###
### If you suggest meeting up even if I cannot host you, mean it, don't just say it to be nice!!!###
**Due to some recent bad experiences, if you are new to CS we might not be a good fit, so for me to accept your request it has to be amazing!!**
*** Never used CS? Here is a great guide: http://www.neha-kulkarni.com/couchsurfing-101-the-ultimate-couchsurfing-guide/
***PLEASE READ***: Unfortunately I have to put this first because many fail to read about my couch before requesting!
1. If you are looking for a "Place on with a beach view", "PLACE TO CRASH", "QUIET CORNER" or "Private Room" my place is not for you. CS isn't Airbnb or a hotel. However if you want a great time with a fun host you have come to the right place.
2. My living arrangements have no privacy and will require us to interact at very close proximity. This requires that good positive energy always should be flowing in the household.
3. PLEASE read about my couch before requesting!
4. If you send me a request, or I invite you, I am expecting to get a reply from you and updates about your status, (like if you found another host or changed your plans). I have experienced some who found a place to stay, but didn't even bother to tell me that they didn't need my help anymore or show up at the last min.
5. Tell me in detail what about my profile made you really wanted to be my guest or at least pretend that it wasn't just for a "free place" :)
**It is not my responsibility to keep up with your travel plans.**
** If I don't hear from you during your trip to check in and let me know your plans your "couch" will be occupied by someone else.**
LOVE AND PEACE!
To spread LOVE freely with no expectations!!
"A sense of humor is the ability to understand a joke - and that the joke is oneself.

You can find me exploring foreign cities by day, slipping in and out of little shops, trying strange and scary new delicacies. Then go back to the apartment, rest up, dress up then hit the town of a foreign city for a night of fun and laughs.Few things give me more pleasure than to share great food, laughs and a rich pinot nior with a few intimate friends!Hi I my name is Frankie and my pasion is to learn about cultures and history. I love to dance, DJ, cook and exercise. If you ever host me I will cook, clean and respect your house (possibly dance for you..hahah). I can be talkative, energetic and up for anything.
Hola yo me llamo Frankie y mi passion es de aprender acerca de culturas e historia. Soy cariñoso, me encanta bailar, DJ, cocinar y el ejercicio. Si me da hospedaje le cocinaré, limpiaré y respetaré su casa (y quizas bailo por vos..haha). Puedo ser hablador, energético y listo para lo que sea!!
"Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends."
"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime."
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Sharing coffee, drink or meal with you. Joining you for day at tourist attraction, museum, bar, or dance club.
Compartir café, una bebida o una comida con usted. Comparto un día con vos viendo attracions turisticas, el museo, una barra, o en una discoteca.
It has been great! I have had the chance to host a wonderful couple traveling through Iceland during my stay there. I also had a wonderful guest from France and New Zealand stay at my home in Atlanta. Along the way I have met for coffee and drinks with many others.
Travel helps you to be open minded. If you do not have the chance to travel the world, live with an open mind and accept that we are not alone on this earth. We are in fact sharing this beautiful planet with billions of people. Each of these people have unique looks, experiences and views on the world.
