So today I hosted my first ever Couchsurfer in NZ. It was awesome to welcome Helen from Aberdeen to stay on my couch. She was hitchhiking around NZ on her world travels, and we shared wine and stories about useless ex boyfriends, the rough streets of Scotland and England, and just how bloody nice it is here in NZ, and how few scag addicts you meet.
Couchsurfing is a fantastic way to meet new people, learn more about the world, and to travel. I’ve hosted and surfed back in the UK and in other countries, but Helen was my very first Couchsurfer since living in New Zealand.
