About Me

ABOUT ME

Easygoing guy that travels a lot and appreciates meeting new people! I am really into politics and activism and generally into humanitarian activities.. So if your are prejudiced, racist or sexist in any way I would advise to keep away..

PHILOSOPHY

Try to get along with people and bridge the differences between us!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

People like to say that couchsurfing should not be treated as a cheap hotel and partly I agree.. However for me one of the main reasons I joined couchsurfing was to be able to travel in an affordable way cause otherwise I would not have been able to. So many people have helped me in this process and I like to help others back.. With that said couchsurfing is a place where you do makelasting friendships and have experiences that stay with you.

In today's society where everything is expensive and you need to pay for everything, I find it very important to help others and be helped by others to travel and experience different places and cultures.. This is an act of solidarity and not charity..

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Have couchsurfed a bit throughout Europe and met a lot of couchsurfers.. Also I have had the chance to host some lovely people and to create some find memories along the way.
