Want to live in South America for a few weeks?


So, some of you might know that I am on a mission to live internationally for the next 5 years (Day 34 of 1827 as of this posting!).

When I first started out, a friend offered to share an apartment with me in Colombia for a few weeks, show me the ropes and help me get used to living abroad. It was an awesome experience that made a HUGE difference in my life, and I decided that someday I would pay it forward and offer the same opportunity to my network.

Now that I’m getting the hang of what it takes to live in a foreign country, I’m ready to put the offer out there for anybody that’s interested.

So… want to live in South America for a few weeks?

# The Deal

It’s very straightforward. I’ll do the research and find an apartment; all you have to do is show up and pay your half of the rent. We’ll spilt food and other shared expenses… basically, we’ll be roommates for a few weeks (potentially longer if I like you enough :P).

I work full time while I’m traveling, so you’ll need to find ways to occupy yourself during those times. Outside of work, we’ll head out and explore the city/country together, and I’ll introduce you to people I know in the area. There might also be some opportunities to go on some double dates, but I can’t promise anything… yet (:

# About Me

I’m a software entrepreneur in my late 20’s. I’m pretty much a workaholic; if I’m by myself, I will quickly fall into the trap of spending all my time at my apartment working.

Outside of work, I like to stay low-key; good food, great conversation and the occasional adventure. Some of my interests include trying new foods, adrenaline, hiking, beaching, seeking out breathtaking vistas, and a little bit of psychology and philosophy. Just a little.

Oh, and my Spanish is… um, intermediate. Expect to feel embarrassed and completely helpless. A lot ūüėõ

# How to Apply

Yeah, you have to apply. Come on; we’re going to be roommates here. I’ve got to at least get a sense of who you are and whether we might get along (or at least not be at each others’ throats all the time).

Think of this kind of like a CouchSurfing request. Send me a PM telling me a little bit about yourself, what your goals are and why you think we might get along.

I’d prefer somebody relatively close to my own age and gender, although exceptions will be considered if you make a super compelling case (:

Also, you’ll probably get the most benefit out of this arrangement if you are relatively new to the international lifestyle. If you’ve already got years of experience under your belt, I’d still love to meet you (I bet there’s a lot we could learn from each other!)… but that’s not really the point of this offer (:

I look forward to meeting you!
