About Me

Hey! My name is William, I'm 25 years old and grew up in Northern Ontario Canada. I love the out doors and active activities (soccer, volley-ball, swimming, hiking ...) . I'm currently studying Health Science and working towards Biotechnology Technician. I've studied Massage Therapy in 2011 and run a small mobile massage practice in my free time to fund my worldly travels.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I was traveling with an ol' friend and she introduced me to the community while we're on the road.. At first I was skeptical, but I trusted her deeply and I had my first couch surf in Sudbury Ontario. I simply Loved it. We had a bon fire in the back and many people showed up to share their traveling experiences.

I met such interesting people and created unforgettable experiences and I can only anticipate future surfs. I love sharing stories with people who govern completely different lives and opening my awareness to new customs and cultures.

Interests

I'm entering a point in my life where my interest in learning about the internal environment is becoming more prominent. I wish to develop critical social skills like: Non-violent Communication, Emotional intelligence, spiritual and self awareness, circumventing negativity and public speaking.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

last spring my Girlfriend had shown me an abandoned chapel hidden in the forest a few hours south of Vienna. No doors were locked and the floor was loaded with rat carcasses. The center of the room held a coffin tomb shadowed by a 25' wooded cross and color-stained religious glass ornaments. There was an opening in the marble flooring to which lead under the tomb, to the coffin itself, but after considering the toxicity of decaying animals we stayed above ground. Spooky but interesting times
