About Me


See the world, feel the culture, understand the people

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Since 2004, I've been surfing (first) and hosting!


Couchsurfed in Canada, Mexico, Peru, Chile, Morocco, South Africa, etc...

After I went on a trip completely sustained by Couchsurfing in Mexico, I became convinced that this is the best, best way to travel. You meet the best people, get to know the place best, and always give me a reason to visit again ;)
