About Me




My name is Tessa, I'm 25 and I'm studying Religion, Conflict and Globalization in the Netherlands and I'll be going back to the US to do research soon. Sorry I haven't been on CS in a while, and it sometimes takes me a long time to respond.. Can't host right now, I'm a little too busy and traveling too much, but sometimes I can meet up or show you around depending on where I am!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've mostly been hosting and showing people around in Amsterdam. In 2011 I went to California, with my brother, where I couchsurfed for the first time.



I know you all know this, but sometimes you might need someone to remind you; CouchSurfing is NOT a dating site and I don't like to be approached as if it is. I will not host you if you are even a little flirtatious in your request and if I agree to show you around it will be as a CS friend - never a date or anything. Sorry this is so straightforward but I've learned it's necessary to give some people a quick reminder.

I have been hosting since 2009 and surfed for the first time in 2011. I met a lot of really nice people through CS and think it's a great project!
