Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I was luckily able to host a few surfers last year while in my dorm, and I really enjoyed the experience! As for surfing, I had an amazing time traveling across Japan by myself for a month, surfing with hosts in around 6 different cities. I had amazing hosts every time and really enjoyed the experiences I had!!
