Why I’m on Couchsurfing
If you're looking for a free hotel...send me a message!
CS is a fantastic way for people who might not be able to afford to see the world to get a good look at it first hand. Sometimes you're in a bind; the runway catches fire at SFO. You're moving apartments and need to save your money for the safety deposit for the few days you're homeless. You just broke up with your boyfriend/girlfriend and need to stay someplace that doesn't remind you of them.
...Sometimes a free hotel is all you need.
BUT, preference given to cyclists, traveling academics, emergencies, and interesting folk just passing thru. If the only reason you're in the Bay is a San Francisco holiday, I'll admit I'm less excited to host you.
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
professional surfer - occasional host
Couch-surfed, lawn-surfed, barn-surfed, bridge-surfed; I've had a fair stretch of the planet beneath my backside.
writing, reading, photography, walking the sorts of distances most people would take an airplane for, scrabble, newspapers, rust belt cities, stubbornly resisting the 21st century, backpacking, philosophy, Thai life insurance commercials, Northern New England, tea, classical music, napping in public places, live music, California, crafting elaborate scenarios, milling around hospitals guessing the illnesses of outpatients, doing things in places where they were never intended to be done, Tom Petty music videos, Iowa, found poems
- live music
- classical music
Music, Movies, and Books
Let's keep this simple. I like:- colorful or bold movies where each shot could stand alone as a composition- music where the artist has done something genuinely musical and original- books with pages that I have to physically turn
