About Me

volunteering and learning!

I am trying to give back, pay forward the generosity and hospitality that was shown to me during throughout the years. I also enjoy meeting interesting people and having engaging conversations.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm a retired writer looking to pay back/ forward all the kindness and hospitality shown to me over years of couchsurfing.

I can provide tours of the Hanover PA, Gettysburg Battlefield, as well as help visitors get to our nation's capital D.C. the commonwealth of PA capital, Harrisburg, Baltimore, etc

agradecido por la práctica española!

I love good conversation and getting introduced to different cultures, whether it be in the next state over or in another country completely.
