Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have an airline companion pass allows me to fly free wherever the airline goes. Realizing hotels costs add up, a friend told me about CS and I love it. Plus rather see places from a local's perspective.
Its only right to reciprocate the support and experience.

Although I still haven't surfed, its been a great experience hosting some amazing people. I did go a a CS meet up in Madrid and met some fun and interesting surfers and hosts :)


Meeting people from different parts of the world and learning about their cultures & histories. Seeing the world from others perspectives. Finding the similarities we share. A few of those shared passions, obviously traveling, food, football (soccer), photography, compassion for less fortunate, laughter, fashion, family values/traditions, and of course music with soul (60's rock, 70's salsa, 90's hip hop, Soulful house).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Finally reaching Machu Picchu and being overwhelmed by its magnitude. such an incredible energy is felt there and leaves you completely awestruck and amazed!

Walking along the Berlin Wall and being part of living history

Going to a favela in Rio and amazed on how people create these mini cities and seeing the deep disparity between the rich and poor just a stone throw from each other.
