After many amazing experiences with Couchsurfing in Europe, I have relocated back to the US; Before this, I spent a couple years teaching English in Prague, and most recently have been working with students from China who are here to study in the US.
Balance is a key element of a happy life. A balanced and skillful approach to life, taking care to avoid extremes, becomes a very important factor in conducting one's everyday existence.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
We are dedicated to perfecting the travel experience through continual innovation and the highest standards of hospitality. From elegant surroundings of the finest quality, to caring, highly personalized 24-hour service, our Flat embodies a true home away from home for those who know and appreciate the best. The deeply instilled culture is personified by its tenants– people who share a single focus and are inspired to offer great service. ;)
I have never had a bad experience. People who tend to participate in something like this tend to be open-minded, cultured, and outgoing. Be it hosting or surfing, it has always been rewarding.
Traveling and traveling now. Don't wait until it's too late. Get out there.

I also once started a "slow clap" during the 20th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution for thousands of people. It was a lifelong goal realized at a very special moment in time.
Discovered a place and time in the middle of nowhere, Iceland that was 100% void of all sound.
