Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've been living in The Netherlands for the past 5 months studying abroad. I just finished school and I'm going to go backpacking through Europe for 50 days before I go back to the U.S. I hope to couch-surf the whole time and write a blog about my day to day experiences!

I participate by the chat boards I like meeting other travelers and locals and going to meet-ups.
