-Seeing two HUGE elephants at Mcdonalds in the streets of Bangkok.
-Hiking up Grouse Mountain (2.9 km (1.8 mi.) hiking trail known as the Grouse Grind) on a bachelor party with a bunch of out of shape guys with beers in our backpacks.
-sitting on the shores of Phi Phi island, Thailand drinking a beer and watching the sun set.
Profile
Like for all of us, traveling is an obsession or a passion. Whatever it is, its an eye opening experience thats invaluable and priceless. Seeing how other cities, countries and cultures eat, work and live sure gives us a new perspective on things.

I'm completely new to the concept of traveling alone. I've been to many places but never done it solo. Unfortunately, my friends aren't in a position to come along for the journey but I wouldn't want that to stop me. I'm looking for fun, energetic and outgoing travel buddies who want to see the world from a local's perspective.

I was born and raised in southern california right between Los Angeles and Orange County but I'm not your typical clueless, closed minded American. I'm fairly well traveled and always up for a new experience.

I enjoy trying new foods and drinks. I'm all about meeting new people, making new friends and doing it with a smile on my face. I'm open minded and love seeing, experiencing, and embracing different cultures.
