Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have been hosting friends for a while (almost every two weeks) then I decided to travel and to meet the people in place, now I am more interested in CS activism

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

First of all hosting nice people from abroad and showing them my city, my house, my friendship.
Then I was hosted in India in a nice and practical way and meet friends to travel together.
Now I meet the CS groups of my city and have new nice people around. Also I have contacted with the people of CS group in Tunisia and was a wonderful way to know the though and to enjoy the friendship of many interesting persons and a new and rich way to travel.
From Morocco I meet very active groups and some that are not active at all. I will work for no one can say that from my city.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

To see how the people can communicate without any common language when they want to, and how the cannot communicate in the same language when they don't want to. To see how the people who has very few gives all in a moment and how people who has a lot try to get more and more without regarding the means.

Teach, Learn, Share

Languages, Philosophy, Literature, Music, Dance...
