Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I particpate by offer space for travellers when I am able.
Also passing on information.
My couch surfing experience is excelllent. I travel by couch surfing around the USA & Britain. Hopefully that will expand to other places in the future.
I have been couch surfing, hitchiking, house/animal sitting, for many years. I love travelling this way because I get to meet real people, and have genuine experiences that I wouldn`t get if I was hoatelling - which I can`t afford anyway !
My `interests` ? Well I guess my life is one big interest.
I don`t have a hobby cause my life & how I live it is my `hobby.
I love being out in nature, meeting lovely , funky people,
laughing, being creative, sharing skills & resources.
I just love having new experiences.
