Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Hosting, guiding, surfing.
I've already surfed on many couches all around Europe and even in Iran and hosted people both in Vác and in Budapest together with my fiancée.
Hosting, guiding, surfing...
I had the chance to meet several nice and helpful people via Couchsurfing. You can learn much more about people and cities, so I find this an awesome idea.
I was regular visitor of the weekly Budapest CS-meetings, where I met hundreds of interesting people from all over the world.
I try to show and popularize my home town for those (unfortunately not too many) CSurfers who plan to visit Vác, and we are hosting together with my girlfriend at our place in Budapest.
