About Me

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Travel should be about more than ticking a bunch of boxes of stuff you want to see. I want to meet the people who live in the places I visit. People and culture are such a huge part that you can miss if you just stay in a hotel and get pampered. I want to see the real place you live in from a local perspective. What better way than couch surfing?
