Travel the world, to explore and understand different cultures and people.

My personal desires: travel, strong personal relationships and professional success.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Looking for experiences and cultural exchanges with genuine people who love meeting new people and exploring new places.
I have couchsurfed informally around the world - in 24 countries during 2013 alone - although I've only used this site a few times. Looking to get more involved! Also - people have couchsurfed with me for years - just never through this website - I'm just late to join so please don't believe I'm just here free-loading! I have hosted dozens of surfers over the last 10 years :)
