About Me


cheap travel addict looking 4 others 2 build international bridges,speak a little spanish.

single eclectic eccentric seeks multiple countries to visit. 2 spend 2-3 months per year in guatemala. no girlfriend for 20 years partially due 2 travel addiction but would like 2 change that b4 i die. silver master bridge player, read a lot. active lifestyle, but like 2 relax. love 2 live. study in contrasts but not boring! have studied money all my life, and last bubble cost me a bundle.


politically conservative but want all the facts i can get. love proportions, but flunked freshman math ,i.e.,azerbajian has 2,000,000 more people than north carolina, which is double the population of norway. u cannot spend|borrow your way out of a recession/depression, true of individuals and governments.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING: hosting when at home and visiting others, about equal in number. currently home. here 6-9 mos./yr.mos./year.
life is not a spectator sport.
COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE: all GREAT, tks. 2 my buddy in minsk, belarus.
i hope 2 reciprocate 2 others. i have contacts in many countries, having set foot in 158. "connecting" for decades but couching is the best answer so far.


interesting conversation
good debate(everyone is entitled 2 my opinion)
serious bridge
researching next trip (3 backpacks around the world )
finding the cheapest way 2 deal with my addiction 2 travel
make me think: u do not have 2 agree!
