Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Happy to offer my wisdom from previous travels and put up other surfers while I'm set up in Vancouver. I always look up members in my travels to see if there are some friendly CS'ers and perhaps a couch too along the way.


Had my first CS experience in San Francisco, CA on a short visit - great stay there and definitely made a new friend. Since then have stayed on a few couches on various travels around the US west coast and hosted a few travellers here in Vancouver. I also participate occasionally with the local CS community.
