About Me

Big guy; trying heart.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

"Be not unkind to strangers lest they be angels in disguise."


I'm always blown away by the generosity I've been shown by Couchsurfers around the world. There have been times when I've been welcomed into the home of CS'ers without even having sent a request; they spot you when you walk off the train and recognize you as one of their own. Couchsurfers are those who know that one's capacity to receive grows with one's capacity to give.
