Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I don't use Couchsurfing forcibly to surf by someone at all costs, but rather to meet people during trips, who I will enjoy discussing and spending time with, and most of the time, it seems reciprocal.
A very frequent traveller, and with a busy professional schedule, I can only host occasionally. Always glad to help when I can.
Travelling, Reading, Running outside, Soccer games, Photography, Painting , Exhibitions, Pubs :)
