Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Couch surfing changes my conception of travelling and hosting surfers allows me to travel when I'm not able too.
I enjoy sharing a piece of my coucher's life , discovering their favorite spots in the city , meeting their friends, doing nontouristy things and activities.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE
I haven't hosted or couch surfed in a while , being stuck with work and not being able to travel as much as I wanted and living in a small appartment have made things more too difficult over the past two years
2015 is a new yeak and I want Couch Surfing and Couch surfers back in my life !
