Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCH SURFING
When people offer me a place to stay I offer the same thing here in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

COUCH SURFING EXPERIENCE
I like to merge with locals when visiting a world city and specially when it is my first visit ever. www.couchsurfing.org offers an interesting opportunity and way to do so.

This was my first couch ever in New York:

If you want: a bike free of charge if you leave a deposit (€150,-) though renting is an option too . ( do not misinterpret; Costs I will have in case the bike gets stolen. Although I will teach how to lock it well to prevent this.

Amsterdam City guide booklet in English to use ( not to keep ).

In case you do not use a smart phone: Map of Amsterdam on paper to use ( not to keep ).

Use of my fast ADSL WIFI when home.

My by now famous red light district guided tour.
Something that I do to help people see this unique event in a relaxed and safe way thx to my knowledge and stories. It is not my life style at all. As a film student I was three months homeless and lived in this district in a Christian Shelter that still exists today and that is how I got to know the ins and outs of this unique world. www.shelterhostelamsterdam.com
