To meet as many people and see as many places as possible
I suppose if I had to sum myself up in one world it would be curious. Curious about people. Curious about the world. Curious to learn more about things that interest me. I love to travel and meet new people. I'm currently living in the Bay Area.
In general, there is much more that unites us as human beings than divides. The more you are able to see how people live in different parts of the world, the better person you become.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
So far I've only gotten to surf since I haven't had suitable accommodation to host. I couchsurfed with a few different people while I was in Europe, many of whom I still keep in touch with. I can honestly say that the people I've met through CS are some of the most hospitable, engaged, trustworthy, and lovely human beings I've ever had the pleasure of meeting.
I love couchsurfing! This project seriously reaffirms your faith in all that is good in the world.
