Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've couchsurfed in France, working on farms and sleeping in barns. If you're familiar with WWOOFING, well, that's what I've done...learning everything from how to thatch a grass roof, to using a scythe to combat great green vegetation invasions, to making medicine and wine out of elderberries.
Scrabble, checkers, and eventually learning French. Global cuisine. I like to travel, see new places, and shoot the breeze along the way.
