Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
with my black couch... and with the great city of Berlin...
I had my fair share of travelling and CS, I was lucky enough to met great people during my time in New Zealand, Argentina, Peru, Australia, Poland, Latvia, Estonia, England, Scotland, the US, France, and India.
in 2009 I couchsurfed throughout my entire 3 months university research trip to the New York area. Another great experience!
in 2011 I was fortunate enough to travel through West Africa and being hosted by wonderful people in Senegal, Mali, Benin and Sierra Leone.
plus: we had some great guests in Berlin from Sweden, Finland, Estonia, France, Australia, the UK and the United States. hopefully more will come soon...
all kinds of music, theater, literature, soccer, boxing, tennis, partying, cooking, American and German politics, international politcs, TV satire... and BERLIN...
