Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you to experience a thing before you talk about it! You'll never know how it is unless you try. Don't even think *I can never do this*. You can! I will prove it to you!
I can teach you how to exit your comfort zone! I believe that's where life is starting, out of everyday routine!

FAQ

Q: Can you as an ambassador block people, unblock me or do research on a profile?
A: No I can not, I do not have these rights. Only the safety team has. Contact them here https://www.couchsurfing.com/about/safety

Q: Do I have to pay the host?
A: No you do and shall not, hosting and surfing is free. However, I advise you to bring a small gift from your country or at least invite the host for a drink. After all, he takes the time to host you and hast small costs with washing/food, etc.

Q: Can you help me find a host?
A: No I can not. A. Put an open request to the city B. Request couchsurfers directly. Good luck!

Q: Do you only host women?
A: Not only, but mostly I prefer them after some stories happened...

Q: Do I have to host in order to surf?
A: No you don't. It's a social system so you can only surf. However, it's nice if later when you have the options can host too.

Q: What is a Couchsurfing ambassador?
A: http://blog.couchsurfing.com/couchsurfing-ambassadors

What I Can Share with Hosts

A gift from my Country, a wide range of personal development advice, how to invest and earn passive money and do some great pictures :)
