Why I’m on Couchsurfing


As much as I've traveled I was only recently introduced to CS in August 2010 by co-workers in BKK,Thailand. Currently, I attend CS meetings in BKK and try to support the community in any capacity I can.


Meeting random travelers who want to know about the world at large, and who is not afraid to go beyond their daily routines.
