About Me

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

CS has been highly recommend to me by friends and strangers. Some of my best friends were once strangers I met in community-minded travel/living situations, e.g., intentional-living communities, student dormitories, mission trips, monasteries, camp grounds, bed and breakfasts, airbnb, warm showers, wwoofing, and other volunteering, etc.
