About Me

I'm Cole! I'm from the US. I work in international higher education, have been to 70ish countries and am currently living near Stuttgart, Germany. I teach Sociology and International Politics, and love to have conversations about culture, history and learn other people's viewpoints.

I love connecting with people in this amazing community! No matter the gorgeous scenery or famous ancient sights, its always the people and the connections I make during travel that stick with me the most.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
