About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel as much as I can with my 80-hour workweek. Bummer, but there's no other way I'd do it.

ABOUT ME

An unwilling amoralist. (That calls for a lot of explaining, I know. Ask me.)

I am perpetually amazed by how much I gain from my travel experiences irrespective of whether they are good or bad. The bad ones make for funnier stories anyway. I ask a lot of questions. Sometimes I don't wait for the answers. I love talking about philosophy. People say talking to me gives them ideas. But they never say what kind. I can be very very sarcastic. If there's one thing I love, it's change. I love the countryside, I love traveling, I love the cities, I love partying, I love meeting people - all as long as they keep things changing.

PHILOSOPHY

Changes every couple of hours. (More explanation to do, I know, I know.)

Host, surf, hang out, learn, be amazed.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Yet to start, can't wait for it!

Update: It's begun, and it's been awesome so far! And now... NYC, here I come!

Update 2: Whew, too much fun traveling makes for too many missed buses and flights. Now where are those trains, gotta strike them off my list, too!

Update 3: Well, I'm back home after about five months of incessant traveling, and I gotta admit I'm a wee bit fatigued. Now for some laid-back times.

Update 4: Wow, it's been a while since I read all this. I'm relieved that I actually identify with the person I was, in spite of having grown and changed as I have. I'm rambling, I know. Anyhow, I'm back on couchsurfing. Not even sure why I thought I "left", to begin with.
