About Me

*** ACL *** , I will NOT be hosting.
If you are a veteran CS'er i may consider it.

*** I usually accept request up to 10 days out & last mintues ***
*** I get 1 -5 requests per day, it may take time for me to reply ***
*** Travelers on Holiday Only ***

About me, Well I'm a crazy aquarian. Real laid back, down to earth & always looking for a good laugh. I have a passion for music, especially anything eclectic(I'm also a closet metalhead). I live to travel ( 56 countries) & I cant sit still for too long without getting the travel bug. Have aspirations to travel the world and experience different cultures.


Just do it, you live only once!
