Join Couchsurfing to see John’s full profile.
For many years I was an elementary teacher at American schools in Germany and Japan. Every Thanksgiving, Winter Break, Spring Break, and Summer Vacation I'd travel. I've been to over 80 countries on six continents. I enjoy seeing new places and meeting new people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have hosted couch surfers and try to show them around Portland. I have also stayed with some very good hosts. I am interested in meeting others who are open-minded, kind, clean, and considerate.
I am eager to please and do what I can to make both hosts and guests feel good 😉
I have been a host many times and have been able to stay with some very good hosts. Although I am a passive gay man, most of my guests have been straight and we've gotten along very well.

A couch to sleep on (with blanket, a pillow and bed linens), and a towel for the shower.
A central location with many public transit options.
