Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I joined CouchSurfing at the beginning of 2008
I first started by surfing in Poland in february 2008 and after that i received my first guest

After few months i discovered my 1st CS Monthly Meeting in Lille and then i really became addicted

i attended a lot of different meetings but i wanted to be more involved so i applied to become a CS city ambassador

I also like each time i travel, to organize CS meetings in different countries.
i organized different meetings in Costa Rica, Ireland, Russia, Belgium and Germany
