Things I Never Imagined Needing To Photograph:

I didn’t ever think I’d need to take a photo of my sofa bed! But since I’m now a host on CouchSurfing.org, I’d better show my guests their accommodation!

I’ve only been a member for 24 hours and already I’ve received 6 couch requests! Crazy. My first surfer arrives this Sunday!

I heard a lot of good things about REI even before I landed in the States. But my trip to SoHo left me a little disappointed. I’m looking for a really heavy-duty travel pack like Snark’s. But everything there was flimsy and synthetic and didn’t look like it would survive Burning Man, never mind a future round-world trip.

The search continues.
