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)! I love the idea of paying it forward but am not always able to host. Check out the "My Home" tab for more details.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far, my experience has been incredible! Two thumbs way, way up! Change/ Transitions (new job, new home, travels, etc) have made it difficult to be an active participant lately, but shoot me an email and I'll see what I can do.
