Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
We open our home to travellers from all over the world. We have a guest room, and a nice big table ! We also had the opportunity to be hosted by CS pleople. Really good moments!
We welcomed a few hosts from all over the world (Finland, France,Germany ,Turquie ,Canada, U S of America, China, Australia...). A few years ago, we welcomed a young Norwegian student during week-ends. Then a young Japanese exchange student for a whole year, full time. Then a marvelous UNFORGETABLE German, Erasmus student in Philosophy and Economy rented one of our rooms, sharing our kitchen also during a whole year. Then a Japanese student lived with us for a few months. We had three wonderful CS experiences in Istanbul : amazing town, so nice Turkish hospitality... One of our best friends in Normandy is a ceramic English artist: Frances Doherty, that we met on CS website. Henry and her are a fabulous couple sharing their life between Brighton and the area of Dieppe. We love them !
