Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

After 13 years inactive my wife and me are open to host some solo female travelers during the week (Not weekends) as a place to sleep (For our work schedule you would need to be out from 8am-7pm).
If this scheme work for you, give us a shot ;)

I was VERY active during 2007-2009 while I was living in Buenos Aires and then back in Bogotá, hosting (More than 150 guests) and organizing all sorts of events (I was a Couchsurfing Nomadic Ambassador and then a Couchsurfing Ambassador for Colombia) :
-Parties
-Picnics
-Campings
-Invasions
-Free hugs
-Wine-melon Paties (I can explain this to you later)
-Pool Parties
- National Meetings

I also took a gap year in 2008 to travel the world one couch at a time and had the best experiences.
