Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

At the begining I just liked idea about Couchsurfing - friendly, hospitable, openminded people, ussually travellers. I was a little bit affraid to surf, because I am not extrovert and super social. First I started to attend CS meetings in Bratislava and than finally I started to couchsurfing in Iran. We had a lot of new experiences, which you can't have in the hostel. Than, with my girlfriend, we continue surfing in Austria and Nepal, where we also tryed, for me for the first time, to host couchsurfers.
