Write the story of study abroad- not the handbook
I am a junior in college and a creative writing major. While abroad in Italy for the spring of 2010, my major goal was to collect enough information, mementos, tidbits and trinkets to put together a solid book about a typical student's experience on a study abroad program. I want to meet unique people, practice other languages, eat exotic food, and ultimately push the boundaries on my comfort levels. When I get back to the States, I want my efforts to be the go-to book for an inside look at what you can make your trip surmount to.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I am ultimately trying to meet new people in a more intimate way by visiting countries and surfing the couches. Show me as much as you want or can about your city- I'd love to know all about it! When I return to school I will open up my couch for those willing to stay!
So far I have hosted 4 people in my apartment in Rome, which has given me the opportunity to show them the city I have fallen in love with. We shared lots of stories and "you gotta do this's to last us all night. Great experience.
