About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learn about our vaste world from travellers and locals, try the beers and foods of the world, go home a complete different person

ABOUT ME

First of all, I don't know my schedule that far in advance, so if you are looking for a couch, please make the request close to your dates of interest. I generally won't know more than 10 days out and prefer last minute or 3-5 days notice. That being said, if you message earlier, I'll keep the request open until I know more.

Have been to Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales, Morocco, Amsterdam, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Croatia, Greece, Bosnia, Spain, many places in the USA, Japan, Jamaica, Mexico, any many more.

I'm a really easy guy to get along with. I'll talk to anyone and once I get going I guarantee I'll make you laugh. I love meeting new people whether its for a few hours, a day, or even for a week.

PHILOSOPHY

Live your life before its gone! I'll Sleep when I'm Dead!

You can determine a lot about a persons personality based on how they treat those they have no obligation to
