Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am amazed that it works!! CS makes it incredible easy to meet people. Couchsurfers are always kind and helpful. I am enjoying that a lot.

Since I have been so warmly welcomed , I like to return the pleasure to other travelers :-)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Always good! Always warm welcomed!

A few times I hosted people in Germany who had an audition at a School for Theatre/Actor the next day.
Also travelers from the US who I took on a bike tour. I enjoyed to discover places in my hometown which I haven't seen yet.

In Jan.2011 I was hosted in Kiruna in north of Sweden for 4 nights. 2 of them we spend in a cabin in the countryside at a frozen lake surrounded by northern lights - it was amazing!

Also I made good experiences when I traveled to Stockholm, Helsinki, Tallinn and Oslo. In total I was hosted by 8 people that period. It was very exciting. You never know who you meet next. It had always been an incredible time.

I totally recommend to move to different hosts when you stay longer than 2 or 3 days in the same town. You get to see so much more of the city and the locals.

In Jokkmokk, Sweden I met some other CouchSurfers, They couldn't host me, cause the house was already full but we had a nice and cosy chat. I was very welcomed to come back and surf their couch another time .

Iceland was the most incredible travel and cs experiences I had so far. Very adventurous.

Teach, Learn, Share

It would be my pleasure to take you rock climbing in nature and make you familiar with the safety instructions.

I can show the old way of blowing up photographs in the lab (depends weather I can manage to get access to a lab).

I like to improve my italian which I have not used since I started to learn swedish.

I'm alway open for good book recommendations!
