LATEST BIKING MISSION
From July 29 to Aug 9, I visited Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary. I biked a distance of 424 km from Vienna passing and visiting the cities and towns of Hainburge, Bratislava, Mosonmagyaryovar, Gyor, Kamaron, Sutto, Tat, and Solymar to my final destination Budapest. I also visited Prague and Hradiste in Czech Republic as well as Krakow and Ashuwitz in Poland. In every city or town, I met up locals, travellers, bikers and found CS and WSL hosts where I had to spend a night. As an alternative, I pitched my tent in camp for two nights. I passed all the message of love, friendship, and peace from Iran. In this mission my diet was meatfree in honor of Sadhu Vaswani Foundation. The gem of this mission was being honored to put on the T-shirt of the Way to Happiness Foundation and meet the great caring people who showered me with their loving assistance in every moment of this mission.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
My first unofficial hosting was in my very early 20s when I was learning English and I hosted 3 men from Australia and 1 man from England! Their short talk with me was very inspiring!
But my first official hosting with Couchsurfing was in Oct 2014 when I met a solo backpacker hitchhiker girl from NL in Yerevan, Armenia!
And on Oct 8th 2015 I was generously hosted by a French marathonist for a night!
Now with such great feeling from CS experience in France, Belgium, and Germany I promise myself to keep myself updated with CS and host as many people I can!
In November 2015, I hosted a world traveling cyclist from Greece! In April 2016, I hosted a Swiss German. Here in Tehran, hosting is highly competitive among the very hospitable Iranians.
I've been in many five star hotels because of my job but the most enriching and authentic travelling is experienced when you're hosted! Jan from Paris, Francesco from Brussels, and Heinz from Frankfurt each with their unique hospitality made their names lasting in my travel history and memory!
When I'm home, I'd love to host, depending on my work load, to introduce the culture of CS in my family and among friends.
When I'm not home I still would like to help my CS fellows to find a host and a free guide in Tehran and perhaps other cities.
