Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am traveling with my dog, Tessa. Because I joined after I left home, I will not be able to host surfers until I return, so for the time being,I will be surfing between jobs in Europe.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I started surfing in January along the Florida coastline until I reached Miami. Now I am in Europe traveling with my small dog, Tessa, which has been challenging but fun.
