Kiwi boy looking for a couch or a tour in March

Hey guys, im mike

Heading to Vancouver in a few days and unfortunately know no one in this city so I was hoping to do a bit of couch surfing. Looking to meet some new people and get used to the place before getting my own place and finding a job. I provide a good conversation and am easy to be around.

More about me; Im trying to learn spanish atm. I just spent 5 weeks in Mexicos national university doing basico uno espanol, and passed (80% jaja so proud!). I want to keep learning this language so I can access the latin culture and stop being the guy sitting quietly in the corner barely understanding a thing. Plus i have many spanish speaking friends so i owe it to them also. And if you need help with speaking English, I can also help.

In Vancouver I want to see/do/taste/hear/and yes smell as much as I can and I have at least 1 year to do so. I want to start some regular sport e.g. rock climbing, boxing, some mountain biking, but most importantly I want to find mi zona tranquila!

I am not a shy person but not a party animal either. Like a good beer or wine, but try to avoid the heavy hangovers these days. Clubs are great but sometimes sitting at home and talking is better. Respectful, caring and genuine.

I usually live in sunny brisbane Australia, and yes when i get back and a house i intend to extend my hand to other couch surfers. Please let me know your impression. Any reply is appreciated. Either way thanks for reading.

Mike
