Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
After having enjoyed hosting some people in Paris, enjoy surfing couches, attend to meetings and spread the word to all the nice people that I meet and who are not on CS.
As you can see with the references, I hosted and was hosted a couple of ( great) times..plus attended meetings, post on some groups and spread the CS word around.
_meeting different people
_giving so receiving
_spending time with children, play, sing, dance and enjoy their authencity
_nature, wildness and authenticity
_sports : basket-ball, windsurfing, trekking, diving and many others in a "leisure" way
_history of : my country, the world, unknown tribes, places I'll visit, places I'll never know
- scuba diving
Music, Movies, and Books
_music : reggae/regga, chanson francaise, jazz, etc..
_movies : historic and war, love and romantic ones; if I had to choose two they would be Gladiator and Moulin rouge; recently saw and enjoyed Red Cliff, can't wait to see the second one !
_reading : passionate of reading, I read everything from novells to history books and travel guides. I'm also fond of poetry, especially french one, the only language that I can fully appreciate.
