Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

joined CS a while back, had some great surfing experiences! when I first moved to germany, i started the Ulm vegan and vegetarians club, but havent been active since I moved... and i've been so wrapped up in grad school the past couple years, but hopefully i'll have more time now for hosting, surfing and getting more involved with the CS community!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

hmm... what comes to mind: the frontier of a heavy rainstorm unexpectedly rushing towards me while I was wading in a shallow stream, raindrops splashing and chasing me faster than i could possibly run, and then getting instantly drenched... reminded me of the overwhelming power of nature

i like to cook (vegetarian, vegan, macro or raw style) ...
