HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I try to offer a warm hospitality to travelers who visit my country.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Soon after I joined CS, I found a place to stay in Frankfurt --just when I needed to be there to catch an early flight the next morning. I got a nice room with a balcony and a view of the river! A year later, my host had to visit my city on a business trip --and I was able to return the favor...He didn´t need a couch, but a tour guide. I was glad to show him around the city.
