Why I’m on Couchsurfing
It is all about people! You will never know how cool, crazy or just normal people you will meet and thats the fun part :) And nice if you can help someone with hosting or showing the city or help with information. It is good for your karma too :) I like to spread out good in my life.
I had my first couchsurfing expierence by attending an official, major CouchSurfing event in Tartu, Estonia. It was 3 day long sauna event with Estonian sauna masters. I enjoyed a lot - sauna, helping plant trees in my hosts farm in countryside, meet all kind of people. Still i am wondering how different, good and friendly people are all around the world. And looking forward to enjoy it more.
Hosted people from Switzerland, Bulgaria, Spain, Russia.
Surfed in Estonia, Belgium, Luxembourg.

What I Can Share with Hosts
National drink from Latvia like Black currant balsam or food like potato pancakes :)
New words in latvian thats for sure.
Comfortable mattress, sleeping bag, shower, towels, meal, wi-fi and etc.
I don't want to someone feels suprised or uncomfortable, because he/she didn't read "My Home" part, so:
I have comfortable mattress and free spot on the floor for one surfer in room i am sharing. :)
I have flatmate and there could be times when his room is available while he is not home. In that case i can host 2-3 persons.
If it is ok for you, than you are welcome :)
