Couch Request - 08/08 -> 08/20
Posted August 1st, 2012 - 1:20 pm by from Sao Paulo, Brazil (Permalink)
Hi Folks

First of All, I would like to say that this is my first international travel with CS and my first time in Canada so I have a lot of expectations from it.

I need a couch during the following period: August 8 -2012 until August 20 2012. I know this is a extended period and plan to divide my stay in several couches during it (for a maximum of 2-3 days so I will not overstay in any host and because in that way i think i will know more about the local costumes and people).
So if you could help me during any fraction of these period I will be very grateful.

The principal reason of my trip is the 7 World Congress of Herpetology (A topic of biology that studies reptiles and amphibians - my profession) that is being held at the University of British Colombia during 8-14 of August. During this period I will be most of the time at the University and probably I will use the house only for sleep and to leave my luggage, only CS at night.
If it's possible a Couch near the university, it will be awesome.

From August 15 to August 20 I would like to know Vancouver and the vicinities, I like museums, hiking and Social Nights - I´m open to suggestions. Also pretend to spend a lot of "photographic time" around the city and know the Vancouver CS meeting.
If there any couch surfers that are free for a drink or cup of coffee this is the time for it and I would be delighted to share a few moments and know you and Vancouver better =]

I´m a Brazilian male biologist, 25 years, like pets (have 5 dogs), don't smoke (but also don´t care if someone smokes nearby), drink socially and have low requirements - any place that I can sleep and leave my backpack is Okay.
I'm an easy going guest, get along with people easily, clean up after myself and am very respectful.
