Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I once spent THREE WEEKS in Guayquil Ecuador with a really cool girl and her family. Her dad ran a bakery and i learned all the names for all the different types of pasteries. Her mom does screen printing! So I helped them design t-shirts and a banner for the bakery's birthday. Apart from that it was just cool living with them and seeing their dailiy lives, how they have fun, their concerns, dreams etc. Very cool experience.
