In April I hosted 2 cute girls from Switzerland. I thought they were awesome and hoped we would hang out again some day... but since they live in Switzerland I wasn't sure that would ever happen. We kept in touch through Facebook and Instagram with our love of traveling and photography. For my birthday they even sent me a video of them dancing to the Beatles birthday song in the wilderness of Switzerland. Awesome girls.
I was more than thrilled when Alessandra wrote me and told me she was coming back to the US and asked if I wanted to meet up with her in Northern California to explore. I of course said yes and bought a plane ticket.... and here we are. She is a pleasure to travel with. We have been having a blast.
That brings us to our next Couch Surfing post. We stayed with a couple different couch surfers on our little trip. These students from the University of Merced were our first couch surfers. They were so welcoming and so fun. We had a blast chatting about life and each others hopes and dreams. Such great guys.
I'm telling you, I have only had great experiences from couch surfing. They loved that Alessandra and I met from me hosting her and are now traveling together. It's a great couch surfing story. I'm sure I will have more couch surfer stories to come.
