COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have stayed in many hostels, and have met some of the nicest people. Couchsurfing, was the best part of any trip by far! The Summer of 07 My friend Jubal and I traveled to 14 different countries in 5 weeks! It was amazing, and so intense..that pace. We couchsurfed almost the entire time! And made many new friends. I love this site!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spent 10 weeks studying in Chambery France. Met so many people, and had experiences that have changed my life. After my American friends left I stayed on an extra month traveling all over Europe. I shared a studio with 3 amazing Algerians!It was nice to be in a place outside of time, at least it felt somehow as though time had stopped.
