Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I host people from all over the World. Its great to meet lovely people. I have then been hosted by fellow Couchsurfers. I will be riding my bike returning yo Italy, CROATIA France, Spain, Germany,Belgium Amsterdam France Switzerland. Maybe I will stay with people I have hosted in Sydney. It would be great to host some people who could let me stay when I go to Europe for my bike riding adventure. In the future I will be couch surfing staying with friends,camping ,hostels Airbnb and hotels. I have stayed in amazing places around the world. I met some wonderful people couch surfing. I really enjoyed couch surfing and would like to meet more new people.
