Join Couchsurfing to see Daniel’s full profile. It’s free!
I live in the busy suburb of Somerville, right in the Boston/Cambridge area. I love to travel around, but half the fun of travelling is meeting new people, wherever they are from. One of the easiest ways to do that is to is by finding ways to make those connections with people from around the world.
Just like there really is no way to truly know who you are completely until you get a perspective from the people around you, it is also just as impossible to understand where you stand in the world until you see the rest of the world around you. I have only seen a fraction of the world, but when you meet people that hail from all around the world, you understand so much of what people are-- not only from how their culture influences them-- but also just as human beings. Even from across the globe, people all have similarities, but also fascinating differences.
We-- human beings-- will always be the most interesting and intriguing things on this planet-- and the more of each other that we can meet, the better.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
It's a bit limited right now, but the entire culture of travelers has been fascinating for me so far-- and couchsurfing seems to be a thriving community of people who are seeing the world. I really enjoy meeting people who can give you a collective view of what the world is all about, and so far CS has only aided in that experience.
