About Me

I am trying to see as much of the world as I can. I enjoy experiencing different cultures and meeting people from all over the world and hearing their great stories of travel, or life back home.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I couchsurfed in the Basque country for almost a week and was lucky enough to experience the culture and make some friends as well. Staying with locals gave me a different perspective versus if I traveled as a tourist and stayed in a hotel. I want to give travelers that experience at my hometown.
