Why I’m on Couchsurfing


When I was in Moscow I was very active in the Moscow CS community, also a bit when I lived in Düsseldorf and New York.
I love the CS idea, and most everywhere I go I check if there's a group and see if there's a meeting or try to arrange one myself. I had amazing experiences meeting CSers in many cities all over the world.


I hosted some people via CS (and am still in contact with most of them) and also hosted lots of friends from all over the world, so my couch and bed have been surfed quite a bit!
Also, I surfed couches and/or arranged&attended meetings and trips in St. Petersburg, Kiev, Moscow, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Jerusalem, Vienna, Rio...
To me, true CSing really is not "only" about helping someone out with a couch or information, but about sharing experiences and opening yourself up.
