Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I took part in several cultural or sportive meetings: it's the way I started couchsurfing, when I was in Australia for studying.
Then I surfed in Melbourne for 3 days, and went on a trip for one week with two friends of mine and two CS: one of my best CS experience!
I also surfed in Canada last year when I did a roadtrip from Winnipeg to Vancouver and met really nice people.
I surfed in Europe (Sweden, Georgia, Germany), Georgia was really interesting because this way of travelling is pretty new there.
And I also got to host people in Grenoble! (mostly CS I met through my trips before)
Climbing! slacklining! hiking! skiing! snowboarding! even canoeing (I'm seasick^^)! All outdoors sports basically. I take sport as part of my daily life : biking 25km to work, visit villages by hiking, etc. "Fitness" is not for me (the few time I tried, I always broke something on the machine anyway).
Apart from sports, I'm interested in arts, all of them, especially music and dance.
...and literature! I spend lots of time writing and reading.
