On our walls right now are two different world maps:This one is our Couchsurfing map. Every time we host someone, we have them put a pin in the place they consider “home.” In the last year, we’ve hosted over 50 people from over 20 countries! I don’t know where everyone who wants to see the Grand Canyon will stay once we’re gone! As you can see, the majority of our surfers have been from Europe, many from North America, and some notable outliers from Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Nepal, Taiwan, and China! Many of these pins also represent awesome new friends who we hope to see again on our travels! We already have couches almost everywhere we’ll want to go in Europe someday!
This is our map. The 3 different colors of pins mean something here. Pink is for places I’ve been, brown is for places Zach’s been, and green is for places we’ve both been. We intend to add a lot more green! The past year has been spent building up good karma by hosting so many travelers. One week from today we are getting in the car. Our year of travel-as-a-lifestyle begins in California. It’s time to work on our map, baby!!!
