COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Stayed with some damn good guys in Glasgow and an amazing family in Inverness, and later their son in Edinburgh. Was brought to a wicked underground party in London and drank some damn good beer in Belgium, then a picnic behind Notre Dame in Paris. Wow. I am really enthralled by the generosity of the people in this community.
