Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I love hosting :) And my last surfer inspired me so much, I wrote a book on the Art of Couchsurfing.
I love the sharing lifestyle. Whether we share stories, food, ideas, homes, or cars - this is how humanity can authentically live.
Remember centuries ago when a tired traveler wandered into a hamlet - a local would open their door, invite them in, give them a hunk of bread and a place by the hearth for the night. Stories might be exchanged, or perhaps hardly a word spoken - no problemo. CS is but an extension of this age-old custom (bread might be optional).
philosophy, music, yoga, ethnic foods, the wild, the soul, wholewheat pancakes, telemark skiing, hiking, paddling, protecting old-growth forests, writing, did I mention MnMs?
