Settling back home
In few lines.
I am someone who loves new experience and traveling is a great way to get plenty of them. Unfortunately I haven't travel much those last few years but thanks to the Global Financial Crisis I lost my job. It made me realise that it was time for a big trip again.
Oh! and I am also easy going, very respectful and I am fun to be around.
Make the most of now,you never know how long the good times will last.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Well so far I have participate as a surfer and I went to few meetings. As a surfer I really try to make my presence enjoyable for the host.
I can host now I'm back in Australia.
I have been hosted by 2 people in Fortaleza (Brasil) and both time the experience was great. But for me more important than the free accommodation, CS is great to meet people.
So even if I don´t surf I always go to the CS meeting of the cities I visit.
Traveling, music, Football, basketball, wakeboard, snowboard, movies, books, surf.
