Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've traveled quite a bit and have always been warmly received so I like to give back whenever I can. I enjoy hosting travelers wherever they may come from and share experiences. Just as I receive others I would like to be offered a couch when I travel abroad.
