Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have learned about the site from one of my friends hosted me in her 5 m2 studio! in Paris. She is a member and when I was at her place she was corresponding with a girl who she would host after me.
When I had returned to Marseille, I registered to the site.


I hosted someone at my home.It was such a pleasure for me. We created a commune part in our lives like crossroads. It was so great to meet a traveler and listening his story. I am happy knowing that person coming from Mexico, living in London and who will be in Japan next year. He is carrying my story through the world and me, I am carrying his. I am glad.


taking photos, trying different recipes- sometimes modifying them =)and finding the places indicated in the guide books- sometimes going off the mentioned direction, movies, colorful papers, making postcards and origami, listening jazz, dancing, if I have enough money then scuba diving, parachuting ..
