Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Can't host at the moment, but up for meeting visitors to New York to hang out, explore the city, and exchange travel stories, tips, and advice.
I recently hosted someone last-minute here in NYC. Funny enough, I had met him initially a few weeks before that at a CS event in Paris.
First met my friend Esther in Amsterdam through CS;hung out with a CSer from France when he visited New York in 2012 - we kept in touch and we got to hang out in Paris in 2015; met a few locals from Mexico City through CS when I visited there in July 2012; Went to an absinthe bar in Paris with other CSers in 2015. Fun times in all instances!
