Why I’m on Couchsurfing

When we went to our first journey together to India and Nepal we decided not to stay in expensive all inclusive hotels and try to explore real country instead of its touristic part. And we keep on this way. Couchsurfing occurred to be great opportunity to follow our life principals.
