Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I love experiencing local cultures, eating the local food, drinking the local drink and participating in as many local customs as possible. Before CS and I travelled on my own for years and stayed in hostels. But there is no comparison to the amazing experiences I've had through meeting other members.
