My name is Mike and I love traveling through active adventure and experiencing culture through food. Let's do something that breaks a sweat, gets off the tourist track, and find out bellies!
"From the submission of our desires springs the virtue of resignation; from the freedom of our thoughts springs the whole world of art and philosophy, and the vision of beauty by which, at last, we half reconquer the reluctant world. But the vision of beauty is possible only to unfettered contemplation, to thoughts not weighted by the load of eager wishes; and thus Freedom comes only to those who no longer ask of life that it shall yield them any of those personal goods that are subject to the mutations of Time." -Bertrand Russell
"Eternal vigilance and constant mobility are the passwords of survival" -Che Guevarra
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Link on what to expect in SF. Great for movers and travelers.
Travelled from Shanghai to London mostly by train and staying exclusively with surfers. This is no doubt the best way to see the sights you would never see, do the things you would never do, engage in extraordinary conversations about local life, philosophies, cuisine, and the great mystery of it all!
Philosophical conversations, tasty treats, swimming, surf, hitchhiking, trekking, mountain biking
Music, Movies, and Books
Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance, Small Is Beautiful: Economics as if People Mattered, Beowolf, Call of The Wild, Letters to a Young Doubter, On Bullshit, On The Road, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs
I am coming to terms that I really do like chick flicks...among other things.
Jazz Fusion, Funk, Electro, Ambient
