Always looking for a new adventure, new experiences, like to learn, like to work, love to play. I'm open minded, like change, a travel junky of sorts, curious, embrace other cultures, enjoy the company of strangers, hearing stories, learning from stories - engaged, egalitarian, and active. I spend a lot of time outdoors, in the woods and on the water. And in spite of all my activity, I'm actually quite easy-going and relaxed.
I've lived overseas for six years of my life in Honduras and American Samoa, but now been in Northern Michigan for almost ten years, where I work in the water world, literally. Have traveled quite extensively throughout the US and beyond, highlights being... geez, where do I start? How about south to north? Thailand, Fiji, Samoa, Peru, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Belize, Mexico, Spain, Hawaii, Guam, Germany, France, Holland, England, Norway, and ohhhhhhhhh Canada... A few of my passions and pursuits beyond travel: biking, hiking, footbag, disc golf, paddling, surfing, learning, languages (speak Spanish fluently, can understand Portuguese, studied Russian), drinking, dancing, aquatic ecology, diving, snorkeling, snowboarding, skiing... hard to fit it all in.
As a host, I'm both hands-off and let you do your own thing if you prefer or willing to sit and chat, walk and talk, share life stories, provide information about the area (or other areas I'm familiar with ;), and open to becoming part of your adventure, if time permits.
