ABOUT ME

"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness...Broad, wholesome, charitable views of people and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." -- Innocents Abroad, Mark Twain

PHILOSOPHY

Work Hard. Be Nice. Think.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

By building bridges between CS'ers by hosting and surfing. For awhile, it was mostly surfing but at the moment it is mostly hosting!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Couchsurfing is a great idea. I have couchsurfed for a few years and it has been amazing. Everyone has been really great, I have not met anyone whom I would not recommmend yet! I hope this continues to be a great experience as I continue my travels.
