I love learning about ANYTHING and EVERYTHING ... walking and hiking and being outdoors ... the water ... the mountains ... "interesting (challenging?) conversations" ... encountering different ideas ... languages ... cultures ...
Just moved to Cardiff, Wales and beginning a new job in food sustainability research - I think it's my "ideal job," and so I'm very excited about this new experience and this new place!
"Hmmm ... I never thought about that before ..."
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Travelling and hosting and showing people around ...
I've just moved back to the USA after 5 years of living overseas ... and I'm looking forward to having my own place (soon!) so that I can start hosting again!
Great! Lots of great experiences both hosting and being hosted, with both CS and Hospitality Club before that for a few years ...hosted people from all over in Buffalo ... and been welcomed by great people in Italy, France, Portugal, Morocco, the USA, and now in the UK.
