Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Read it in the paper, signed up. Shared some stories with couchsurfing friends, but did nothing with it for months. Than decided to give it a try and found out about this family of supercool people and life-experiences.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

The first experience was a CS-meeting. Which was just a fun party, but I've been to many fun parties. In St. Petersburg I stayed at Janna's place and that was a major value add for my visit at St. Petersburg. and so the story went on and on and I met all these great CS-people.

Interests

Learning in many kind of ways, kite-surfing, crossing big crossings, swimming, eating mole poblana, politics, eating more mexican food, logistics, music, eating chinese food according to local chinese standards, running, going out with friends, riding my bicycle, visiting; photograph, historical and science museums, chess, drinking cold beer, sharing traveling stories, fulfilling dreams!

Teach, Learn, Share

- Check all the around-the-world flight tickets before your leave for a worldtravel. One example is www.oneworld.com, but all of them change conditions a lot so check all of them before you leave.
- In the Netherlands buses and trains do not get cheaper if you buy your ticket last-minute as for example in Peru or Bolivia. Low budget flight tickets get even more expensive if you buy them last minute.
- Lidl and Aldi are the cheapest supermarkets in the netherlands.
- Watch out for bicycles. They are everywhere on the street (or sidewalk) while your in the netherlands.
- Check www.hitchhikers.org for a cheap/free long-distance lifts.
- Do not buy drugs from the streets in the Netherlands, only buy it from the coffeeshops.
