Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Traveling, meeting new people, seeing new things. It's the best way to get to know a place. Sometimes the couch may be a bit small, lumpy or in somebody's living room but the people are always the best.
Photography, human rights work, volunteering, riding my bike, art, travel, cooking, being a nerd and making stupid jokes
