About Me

Hello all! I'm Charles. I am a friendly, outgoing person with a passion for adventure, nature, outdoors, the beach, volleyball, diving, dancing and I enjoy a good social vibe. I love meeting new people and travelling myself, so helping out the occasional traveler is always something I've done since finding this site months ago. I took a year off to enjoy home, travel as much as possible and experience all that I can.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing is a fantastic way of meeting new people from around the World. It gives so much more than just a couch to sleep on. It's chance to see and experience something different, new and often unexpected on your trip.
Besides, it’s a great chance for making friends all over the world. Meeting people from different places and backgrounds give me more and new ideas of how life is!!
