Host travelers on my couch and prepare for long-term travelling
Infected by the travel bug when I was in Argentina in May for a month(mostly in Patagonia). Want to eat what I hunt. Done some hiking in San Francisco Bay Area, Santa Cruz, Yosemite, Squamish in British Columbia, and the Volcano Pacaya and Semuc Champey in Guatemala, Iguacu, and of course, Patagonia(Tiearra del Fuego, Torres del Paine, Perito Moreno, Fitz Roy, Bariloche), 5-day trek to Machu Piccu, Guadape, Death Valley.
-Jump before I look.
-When I come home from a trip, please don't ask me how the weather is or is it safe where I visit.
-No coporate robots/zombies allowed, but if you are, I can save you.
-Protect your mental ecosystem by surrounding yourself with the best people and true friends, no frienemies.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Currently host travelers
Felt like traveling part time. And free language lessons.
Podcast, watch Joe Rogan Experience, and Fighter and the Kid on YouTube. Starting my own podcast with friends and travelers. Having a real conversation rather than looking down on our phones on social media or trying to catch Pokémon.
Music, Movies, and Books
Books:Tropic of Capricorn, Tropic of Cancer, Black Spring, The Rosy Crucifixion Trilogy, pretty much anything Henry Miller. You'll Know I'm Dead When I Stop Talking, Team of Rivals(Lincoln's biography),, Fountainhead, Alchemist, Honeymoon with my Brother.
Movie: Pulp Fiction, Scarface, and Good Will Hunting
Musical: American Psycho (Broadway show)
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Walking on the glaciers of Perito Moreno. Altitude sickness got the best of me the peak of Salkantay (trek to Machu Picchu), I was sleeping and dreaming while standing. My feet and legs swollen with mosquito bites from jungles of Peru and still went out dancing. Took a bus to Chile from Argentina on split second decision. then got stranded in Chile for 45 minutes in pouring rain with most hostels fully booked. But eventually had a bliss at Torres del Paine.
Teach, Learn, Share
Starting and maintaining a podcast. Having a conversation about life and philosophy. Share knowledge on life. Share the best coffee and cuisine.
