Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Try to be a good host and a surfer coz in my opinion CS is the easiest way to know more about the city and the culture of where you are visiting and also it is the easiest way to meet new open minded people;)
I have been hosting people in Istanbul,Bologna,Liverpool,Doha. Been hosted almost all around the world..
listening music,night clubs, dancing, meeting new people and listen their crazy stories..
and also drinking ;) i have a big collection of alcoholic beverages from all aorund the world and i will be really appriciate if u bring even a small bottle:)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
-I did erasmus in Bologna and I can say it is the most amazing thing that I ve done in my life. (updated version below)

QATAR USEFUL INFORMATION:
-You are not allowed to bring any alcohol in the country. All bags are checked at the airport. If you are trying to enter the country with alcohol it is a criminal offence. 99% they forgive tourists and no penalty for them but they take the alcohol anyway. I think it is enough punishment :)
-If the taxi light is RED already which means that the taxi meter has been active already. Be careful!
-Renting a car a little bit more expensive. This tip for the ones who are going to stay here, who has recently moved. Instead of renting a car for couple of months it is better to buy one cheap one for first couple of months then you can sell it and buy your dream car. I think the cheapest renting deals are with GO rent a car. I did rent with them 2-3 times and liked the cars and their service. If you are coming to Doha for 2-3 days then it is also better to rent a car. (Be careful about the traffic jams during the rush hours)
-Women do not need to wear head scurf or do not need to cover themselves but too short dresses and/or sleeveless shirts are not acceptable neither.
