Join Couchsurfing to see Taylor’s full profile. It’s free!
Reading any/all things, developing and nurturing close friendships, daydreaming & trying to remember nightdreams, being professionally inspired (and frustrated) by teenagers, and having discussions over tea! coffee! beer! about the human experience and the effects that we all have as humans in bouncing off one another experientially are some of my most favorite.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Couchsurfing is, conceptually, fascinating and exciting to me. It's breaking down a huge obstacle that keeps people from traveling - money. As well as keeping the benjamins from capitalist big hotels and creating/thickening on the ground social bonds. Couchsurfing is so simple, it can't work and yet... it does!
