Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I used to attend Couch Surfing Friday Night Drinking Club from time to time in Germany.

I have Surfed some couches in Frankfurt and also met with other couch surfers over coffee and made some incredible friends through this website, as well as hosting surfers back in Germany.


All of my CS experience has been great! It seems that there are many intelligent and friendly people here that are definitely worth reaching out to.
