Join Couchsurfing to see Cyrus’s full profile.
World class goofball and international nomad. I live to travel, meet new people and visit new places. I like playing volleyball, social dances, watching movies/shows which makes me laugh or makes me think, hiking, kayaking and always trying new things.
P.S. I don't expect you to read my whole profile, but plz make sure you read this part at least, otherwise we won't have a good first impression.
*Not hosting "one night stands" ("sarcasm", it literally feels like a one night stand, shallow and depressing, when you see experienced Csurfers use the platform to crash on the couch, without making bare minimum effort to make a social connection with their hosts or other surfers) during the week anymore, unless you have an emergency. Also if you have a late night arrival, plz don't send a request for that night, or if you do, make sure you mention it in your initial request (I consider any arrival after 9 PM a late night arrival).
**Currently my parents stay with me; so you may or may not get a private bedroom.
***If you have been camping or has stayed in many different places on your current journey, please be careful with what you unfold in my house. We are concerned with bringing in infestation of certain bugs; and trying to keep it safe for ourselves as well as future guests. You can leave uncertain luggage in the garage and I will provide blankets so that you don't need to unfold sleeping bag or anything like that.
****If your space is tight and you're hosting me, please beware that I may talk in my sleep, specially when I am physically tired.
*****If you have read this much, you should be a good Couchsurfer. Stand out of the crowd by letting me know if you have watched the movie Ten by Abbas Kiarostami (it's ok if you haven't, I just wanna know who read and who blindly send requests).
If you haven't done any research about how to be a great Surfer yet, please do so. Couchsurfing is a hobby, not just giving or receiving free stuff (specially for those who travel for work); so please learn how to be a good guest, and the value of contributing back spiritually and physically. Here is a good list of tips to start with:
If you're visiting Sacramento on a weekend and have interest, ask me about opportunities to go rafting or kayaking.
