My main objective is honestly to have a free place to crash while visiting other cities. Through that I'm looking to meet like minded people. Also get a different view of the places I travel.
I was born and raised Philadelphia. I have never lived anywhere else but am very eager to finally change that in the coming years. That or at least some long term travel. I love traveling for the different perspectives on life you gain from people in all other walks of life. I love wandering through a city and admiring its architecture and bars. I am a drinker. I prefer bars over clubs but I'd sooner get some beers and have people over my house. I like to CHILL(hint) and relax(other hint) and talk with friends and new aquaintences alike. And now a list of other things I enjoy: bicycling, my dog Henry, reading, working, history, some tv, most people, ...........more to come..
"Never impose on others what you would not choose for yourself." Confucius (551ÃÂ¢Ãâ¬Ãâ479 B.C.)
Live your life to the fullest and try to affect others in only a positive way.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've been an unofficial tour guide for a few surfers visiting Philadelphia and have hosted a couple of CS parties at my house. Other than that I have been a bit inactive through 2011 but plan to change that this year.
Great. I can honestly say I personally have had no bad experiences with hosting people and all the CS meetups in the city I have been to have been fun and interesting.
Music, reading, drinking, meeting new people ("new" as in people I hadn't met before not "new" as in babies), travel, camping, democracy, pot, the internet, atheism, local beers, Irish whiskey, the universe, zombies, thinking about what I'd do and where I'd go if there were some sort of apocalypse or all out civil war, getting "off the grid", opening a hostel somewhere perpetually warm, sailing around the world or at least the Caribbean or Mediterranean seas, making people laugh and laughing at people.
Music, Movies, and Books
Movies: Anything Monty Python, Mel Brooks, Will Ferrel. Blade Runner, Kids In the Hall's Brain Candy, Half Baked, Fifth Element, O' Brother Where Art Thou, Black Dynamite, Rubber, The Shining, Hobo With a Shotgun, the list could go on and on including too many documentaries to name.
Music: Jimi Hendrix, Radiohead, early to mid 90's rap and hip hop, Ida Maria, Bob Marley, Miles Davis, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, Blur, Gorillaz, Deftones, Detroit Spinners, The Ojays, Led Zepplin, The Animals, The Four Tops, Harry Belafonte, ......

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Amazing is a strong word and I think I need to save that for future experiences. But great, fun, extremely interesting. Those are words I'd use for Burning Man, Mardi Gras in New Orleans on French Street and out in the neighborhoods for the parades. Diving in to cenotes in Mexico. Making my way through chaotic, crowded "bus terminals" in Nicaragua (nicer than D.C.'s greyhound terminal though) and actually getting on the correct bus. Smoking pot legally in Amsterdam.
