Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have researched this and talked about it with a friend who has done it from Hong Kong to Lisbon. I am a novice and have just surfed one time in Portland. However, I have just surfed once with a friend there. It was an amazing experience and I believe the philosophy of giving out to the world and you will get back. I plan to continue this new adventure of couch surfing and give back in the ways that I can.
