Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing is interesting for me because it allows us decommodify travels, and without contribute with capitalist business , however helps create bonds between people and meet other people, other cultures and other places.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I Couchsurfing once in London for 5 days. It was a great experience while strange, since it was a big house where many people lived there and several people agreed that we were going to Couchsurfing. It was a very interesting experience in that house painted in many colors.

I have also stayed at people in my house, but now not stay people of Couchsurfing, because I live in Madrid in a small shared apartment, and come here to much known people, friends or friends of friends, because Madrid is a city of step, and for this reason many weekends there are people staying here.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When we crossed the border between Laos and Thailand, we join two Russians who would advance walking to the next village, because it is the only way to do this unless you want to contribute to the exorbitant prices of carriers to customs, so we walked and we hitchhiking together, as a good think of traveling in Asia, is that you can hitchhike group as most cars are pick-up or vans and can travel in the back. Finally we discovered that the older man was Vladimir Nesin, known wise and barefoot traveler and his apprentice, who traveled to Thailand to try to cross this pass the border to Myanmar, so we spent the day with them, slept in a temple, we share the little food they got along in the backpack
