Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I would love to show any fellow CSers around wherever in the world I happen to be living at the moment and be a host whenever possible. Hope to meet other cool CSers whenever I travel around the world. After all, it's not only the places you visit and the things you see, but mainly the people you meet on the way, that make an experience so unique and unforgettable.
