About Me


The World is a book, and those that do not travel only read the first page. I plan on finishing the whole book and go for another one


You can call me Traveling Travis, It's what I do. Or my Korean name Lee Sang Hey haha. I'm a laid back, easy going guy, I like to read, I think it has something to do with my mom being a librarian. I like to watch movies, and play video games, despite the fact my brothers kick my butt in every game. Also like the outdoors, hiking and camping. Taking life as it comes at me, making the best of it as i can. I'm up to trying anything once, because how can you ever really experience life and know what you like unless you take a chance. I am a history major graduate, so i enjoy learning about the past and cultures in the world. However ancient europe and the WWII era have held a interest for me.


Anything is possible. To be old and wise one must first be young and stupid. The would is a book, and those that do not travel only read the first page. Sometime the journey is more important than the destination. I'm not lost, I'm exploring, You can do anything once, and if you don't blow up or go to jail you can do it again

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host when I can, and became the Greensboro couchsurfing coordinator for the meeting we have after Travis 1 left. To help bring the fellow couchsurfers in the area together to meet each other and have fun. Along with setting up the movie nights.


Well there was the time I "crashed" a birthday party. I wasn't invited but the host took me along and I had a great time and got to meet the Birthday girl. Midnight road trips to outdoor saunas. Going to the carnival and beer gardens. Cooking some dinners with people. Showing them how a white boys dances at a few house parties. I don't care what anyone else says I'm a good dancer. But I have to say some of the best experiences I've had couchsurfing, have been walking around the city with the host talking getting to know one another.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Went Sky Diving in Switzerland and New Zealand, its the coolest thing I've ever done.
Ran with the bulls For San Fermin, and then smack one in the butt for good luck in the arena. Which is ironic considering what happened just before running. Snorkeled the Great Barrier reef,
Climbed Uluru, and went on a hot air balloon ride in the middle of the Australian dessert for the sunrise. I have never seen so many stars in my entire life. Rode Elephants in Thailand. Rode camels in India.
Stood Naked in front of the opera house with 5,200 other naked people.
Went Scuba diving with whale sharks and thresher sharks in Philippines.
