I grew up in Vietnam 🇻🇳, moved to the US in 2020, currently getting a bachelor degree in Psychology and Data Analytics. Soon to be a corporate slave!!! 😂
I did an exchange semester at the University of Amsterdam and found out about this platform. I spent the majority of that semester traveling around Europe, probably went to over 10 countries by myself on a low budget. Even though I was practically a tourist, surfing with local hosts and hanging out with other surfers really broadened my horizons. I think it’s fair to say that Couchsurfing helped redefine the concept of traveling for me, making it more of an integrated experiential learning opportunity rather than merely “traveling”.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
This platform pretty much facilitated my solo travels back in Europe where I made such meaningful connections with local-ish hosts and all the people I met along the way. Those experiences in so many ways shaped who I am today, so I guess I’d want to pay it forward and host travelers in America or Vietnam whenever possible.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Whipped up a typical Vietnamese dinner from my host in Prague and his roommates. Over some beer, they taught me some basic Tagalog phrases, but let’s just say the only ones etched in my memory are the colorful curses!
