Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Traveling, hosting, organizing potlucks, making friends.
The summer before beginning college I took a three week trip around Europe with a good friend of mine. We crashed on couches of a few people we knew and stayed in hostels. I loved the hosteling experience, especially meeting travelers and becoming good friends quickly because of our shared experience.
While in Europe I surfed, hosted, met with local CSers, and threw vegan potlucks with some friends I made on CS. It was great!

Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach people some basic swing dancing (lindy hop, east coast, shim sham), vegan cooking, as well as mathematics.
I also would love to learn more about raw foods.
