I'm an Irish student born and raised in Dublin and living in Berkeley, California over the Summer. Now I'm heading back to Dublin via NYC.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
At the moment I am staying with 3 other people in an apartment where the couch is about 4 feet long and usually functions as landfill sight for our junk, so unless you have a sleeping bag and a penchant for hard floorboards or don't mind sharing an extremely cramped single bed with me, I'm going to have to say that I'm participating only as a guest at the moment. But would love to provide more hospitable accommodation as soon as I can!
Only two experiences so far, both as a guest, both brilliant:
The first was in Jordan visiting Petra. My friend and I stayed with an amazing guy called Ghazzab in his cave nearby. Him and his brother were so welcoming, had the chats with us long into the night and showed us a slice of Bedouin life - and gave me my first interest in couchsurfing. Did this through a friend's couchsurfing account so sadly I can't claim the reference for this one, but search for a couch near Petra and you'll find Ghazzab no problem!)
The second was on my way from Nablus in Palestine to Tel Aviv. I stayed with Sarah, a lovely French girl who despite her busy working day found the time to go for lunch with me on my last day in Israel. My love of couchsurfing grew exponentially.
I don't want to use up all my potential couchsurfing conversation material by giving away everything in this profile, now do I :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Been to the West Bank. Singularly the most eye-opening experience of my life. I met so many friendly, generous people and learned so much about a way of life very different to the one I'm used to. I would recommend ANYONE to go there - you'll be surprised at the very least.
