Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

If I do have some free time when surfing I love to cook Spätzle (south German delicacy) for my hosts all over the world.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I hosted a couple of people back in Germany as well as in Astana/Kazakhstan. I really loved to chat together, to show my hosts the city and to have dinner together. I also surfed a couple of couches in Germany, France, Russia and Kazakhstan and liked always the way you get to know the people and the cities in a very special way.
