Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Host in my guest bedroom with bunk beds whenever possible. I prefer hotels while overseas with just meeting CS members for dinners, coffee and private tours


I have had years of good experiences hosting internationals prior to discovering CS, why didn't I think of this great idea. Enjoy hosting guys from all over and I hope to be a CS ambassador soon.I will be returning to Europe for my 17th trip in 07 always looking for travel partners.


My interests include all the Arts. I paint, sculpt and enjoy attending concerts,plays and ballet. I enjoy swimming, biking, kayaking,the beach and showing guys around sunny Florida.
