Why I’m on Couchsurfing


As of now, I'm traveling Botswana through the good graces of those on this site. One day I will pay it forward, when my accommodations consist of more than a dorm room!


So far so good. It's proven to be the best way of meeting people abroad for me. We're all connected in little ways; it just takes courage to venture out and find how.


Listening. And as of late, reading.
