Why I’m on Couchsurfing


at the moment I´m a user. whenever I move around, even in Germany, I look for couchsurfers.
and recently I got to organize the Language Group Meetings Frankfurt/Offenbach


It´s very relaxing, to meet with someone who can tell you a few things about the place and shows you around as well.
before couchsurfing I was going to a destination as fast as possible; for example on my way to Bristol I took a stop in Paris for one day ... it´s a slower, more intense way to travel
also, it´s fun in my hometown with the local groups; like going to the cinema and have an english-only evening in a pub on tuesdays
couchsurfing sure helps my language skills
