Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Couchsurfing brought me here (Santa Rosa) and the people I met through couchsurfing got me to stay (at least in part)! Now that I have the space, I'm ready to host those who are wandering through this beautiful corner of the world.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far, my experience has been incredible! Two thumbs way, way up! My work schedule is pretty crazy so I can't always agree to host (especially at the last minute) but send me an email anyway and I'll see what I can do.
