About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Trying to fulfill the urge of seeing the world and enjoying the life that we have.

ABOUT ME

My name is Alejandro, I'm a senior at university studying horticulture. I look forward to traveling the world once I graduate and see where the grand adventure takes me. I enjoy being outdoors, going on hiking trails, running, frisbee golf and Capoeira. I'm seeking to develop my personal skills that will propel my life to the next stage.

Some of the best people I have ever connected with were always from other countries, its amazing to see just how unique each person can be. Some of the places I have traveled to include: Japan, Brazil, and Mexico, Europe, and Korea.

PHILOSOPHY

You must be true to the person you wish to become.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

To be apart of an amazing network of like minded travelers with a curiosity for cultures.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My first experience with CS: Arrived in Germany and met with our german couchsurfers. After a day of traveling around Frankfurt we were debating what to to do in the evening. "Lets go to Amsterdam!" said one of our hosts friends, Next thing we know we are driving 5hr to get to Amsterdam. Only to end up sleeping on the docks, 5 people in a car, missing the nightlife action we originally drove there for. Thats aways a good way to start any trip!

Interests

Im interested in learning new languages, meeting new people, and traveling to see the world. I have started to reopen my eyes to the infinite possibilities that lay before me. The world is ours for the taking, we just got to reach out and grab it.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Watched the sunset over Belem as we drifted down the Amazon river.

Teach, Learn, Share

Life is full of unexpected events. But what i have learned to really see is that you got to just take a look and view it from all sides. When i was in Japan i was put with a really rough and strict host family and i dreaded being with, but in my last days there i realize that being there was good for me. It taught me to be patient and made me realize the other good things that i had. Everyone and everything in the world can teach you something great. All you have to do is take a moment and give it a try.
