About Me


Wheter you say you can or you can't - either way..... you will be right


Xavier Verschaeve
i'm a highschool's principal before i was a biology and geology teacher
interrested in sports reading travelling of course but i'm use to go where most of tourists don't go.

I'm definitely a CS addict and don't even try to cure it, and I try to make my house a CS paradise

i'm interested in Russian Culture i don't speak russian but i'd love to learn

i'm also very interested in Transcaucasia ( Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaidjan)


Why I’m on 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


I love to host, I'm definitely CouchSurfing addict

I've started to host in March 2008
and so far i have hosted 335 people.

I've been surfing about 160 times
