I like people. I like hanging out. I'm super laid-back and relaxed. Except that I am passionate about traveling and seeing things and meeting people and learning about the ways people live and why.
Take it easy. Everything will be just fine.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
A friend, LaurelDarcy on CS, and I offered information, conversation, and sometimes habitation in Cairo, Egypt. I surfed a few times on a bicycle trip from Milano to Amsterdam. I surfed a bit while hitchhiking from Washington DC to San Diego. I'm looking forward to hosting again, as soon as I have space.
Hosted 15 or 20 CouchSurfers and met with even more in Cairo, Egypt. Used CouchSurfing to find kindred spirits (and an awesome apartment!) in Milano. Now hoping to meet folks as I wander my way back across my native country.
