Sorry, folks. For now the International House of Random is closed, due to kitchen remodeling. We'll open again in the fall.
Preamble: Life is not binary. Our options are more nuanced than "yes or no" or "choose from among these four options." Is our house pet friendly? It depends on the type of pet that is traveling with you. Are we accepting guests? It depends: are you solely interested in crashing on our couch (or sleeping in our outdoor loft - see pic) or are you interested in meeting us and having us meet you?
There: I've vented. Do I feel better for it? A little.
To enjoy the journey and to share the joy
Laughter and a kind word brighten the day. I aim to be a source of both.
Build bridges. Complain less, say "thank you" more. We're all in this together.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
My wife and I were Servas hosts - and occasional Servas travelers - for close to 15 years. We enjoyed meeting people from diverse backgrounds, especially those who allowed themselves to feel at home chez nous. Couchsurfing has all the advantages of Servas but without the bureaucracy.
Music, Movies, and Books
Depends on the day and my mood. Some days salsa, other days Afrobeat.
