Why I’m on Couchsurfing


You can be my visitor for 2-3 days. I can also advise on places to visit (by mail, phone or face to face). Age and sex are not important as long as you are civilized. I have 2 spare bedrooms, each with double beds. If I have time I can take you to some of the places – especially in summer when the days are longer.


I was hosted by many people around the world – though not through this site. Some of them were relatives, but others I have met during my trips and they were kind to invite me to their houses. I like to meet new people, learn from them and by them the spirit of their country and culture, and also save money as I travel on law budget.
The first time I cs my self was on 2009. Me and my friend traveled in New England, USA for 12 days - all cs. It was an amasing expirience.


art, culter, education, scenery, talking to local people, community events and much more. almost everything interests me - especially if it is new to me.
