DISCLAIMER: This is a parody. The song is an eighties hit from Hungary. Its not me singing, and it doesn't matter if you don't understand the lyrics. Its about flowers, love, loneliness, and other kitsch. The video makes no sense in any way. You've been warned.
philosophy is bad for you
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
meeting, partying, talking, surfing, hosting, tour-guiding, two wintercamps... also participated in translating the website into hungarian - not as if anybody would need that
It started in summer 2008, a hitchhiking csing trip with a friend in the Czech Rep and Poland (lovely place!). I hosted a bit in Romania and Hungary (you know, hosting is traveling without moving). During my last trip in China (2009) i spent 60 nights in total at csers places, it was a giant help! Since 2013 I m hosting in Germany. In 2014 i surfed again, this time in Iran. Met many other members over the years here and there. Couchsurfing is so much more then a free hostel and a dating site ! Its the best flat renting agency in just about any town (i found my rented room in London, Budapest and Belgrade as well as several tenants in Budapest through the cs forum) as well as an instant social circle wizard for most parts of the world with internet (tested this function extensively in China, Germany, London etc)
