Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
[IN PROGRESS: MOVING SOON TO A NEW HOUSE IN UTRECHT, HOLLAND]
This was no actual COUCHsurfing, but I went to have a drink with Hanoian DJ Tri Minh, spent two lovely days with Andrew/Minh in Hai Phong, one afternoon with Hoang in Hai Phong and while spending time with them, whom I met via messaging on couchsurfing.org, I met other couchsurfers too!
Really good experiences!
In Hobart-Tasmania I surfed at a shared house. Baking them Dutch cookies and going for jogging together instead of always alone!;
Then I surfed in Graz-Austria and talked and talked and talked the night since I had to leave the next morning;
And atm I´m surfing in BERLIN for a couple of days!
When I was living with the Greatest Greek couple, these roommates hosted people from all around Europe in our shared flat, like Lithuania and France.
A French guest even got to join me and my Greek housemates, their dog Alma in - can you think of anything better - a Nissan Micra(!) from Holland all the way to Greece.. how cool becomes life with CS?
Things that really grab my attention are: Behavior of people - the (sustainable, future) economy - individuality of persons - food facts - history - cultures + languages + dialects - anthroposophy - the importance of art in the world - free, open-minded people - to be continued..
