I want to meet all my fellow Earthlings!
I don't think I fit nicely into this box.
You'll just have to find out!
I'm an equal opportunist. Come as you are.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
To travel in a different way. Yes, I want to see the Eiffel Tower if I'm in Paris, but I also want to experience how Parisians live. That may require me to stay in the Banlieue instead of the Champs Elysees, and I'm okay with that!
In no specific order:
White water rafting
Religion and Faith
Social and Environmental Justice
Music, Movies, and Books
If you're a fan of indie, folk or acoustic then we will have something to chat about.
I'm constantly listening to podcasts (esp. NPR and its affiliates) and watching documentaries.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
How about a top ten?
Catching the sunrise over the Angkor Wat, Cambodia
(Illegally) Sleeping under the Milky Way near Lake Tekapo, New Zealand
Unexpectedly snorkeled with sharks in the Great Barrier Reef
Being "adopted" by a Sri Lanka family in Kandy
Sand boarding in Ica, Peru
Enjoying the most pristine beach in the world (Whitsunday) only to be attacked by a flock of hungry seagulls who proceeded to steal lunch and break my camera
Having a wallaby break into my van and doing its business while I was sleeping in the tent (Tasmania)
Hiding in a temple in Bangkok while the military cracked down on protestors
Showed up in Venice during peak season without a reservation and ended up in a very pricey dungeon...
Making two short documentaries in El Salvador in heavily armed gang territories.
But just talk to me!
Teach, Learn, Share
As cheesy as this sounds, I believe every individual has something to teach or offer to someone else.
Nonetheless, my current interest as of December 2015
Rolling my Spanish Rs, Spanish in general
Self Defense/ Marital Art/ Judo/ Muay Thai
