Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

talk to people- talk to the weird guy in the bus seat next to yours, to the cabbie with a frosty accent, to the people in your train compartment, to the toll booth attendant- just smile and talk and -listen- they will probably do the same and we'll all feel better and a little less like a bunch of stiffs

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Randomly met a college buddy in Krakow in 2006 and he introduced me to CS. Have since hosted and shown a few new friends around. Previous hosts inspired me to be more gracious and magnanimous and just to be nicer, better... CS rocks!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

ask me about roof-hopping on my last day in Aix-en-Provence, or the night train from Poznan to Krakow, or my unsuspected stopover in Manchester,UK or the road blocks and tires on fire in Port au Prince or my friend from Fez, or a the Mexican family along route 66 and a recovering addict mechanic who saved my road trip, and the Egyptian pharmacist I met one crazy night in a hotel in Arizona during a cross country drive...
