Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Not too long ago I recognized the role which I am to play in this life. I have always believed that I had a purpose on Earth, but it wasn't until recently that I accepted the challenge. Life since that moment has been clarified. To acknowledge this awakening, I have assumed an "action name", one that I believe represents the work I am to do. In Arabic Samira means "pleasant community" or "entertaining companion". In Swahili, it means "one who reconciles and solves differences". In Sanskrit it means, "Gust of wind or cool gentle breeze on a hot summer day." Beleza is the Portuguese word for beauty. Since I believe my quest for reconciliation began in Brasil, I honor the journey by unifying my actions with this descriptor. I chose this word not as a representation of myself, but as an adjective chronicling Samira. I indeed plan to live up to this calling, and I know it will be a "beautiful reconciliation".

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've never "couchsurfed" knowingly, but I have been to Brasil twice, Dubai, and Puerto Rico:-) Accommodations have ranged from tent, to hostel, to pousada, to many star (lol) hotels:-) I love to meet people and connect with them. I've mostly traveled for volunteer and education. Puerto Rico was my only "vacation".
