Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

by surfing, hosting and sharing a little bit of me (and everything that comes with it)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've hosted many people from different places and it has always been awesome. When traveling, I got to stay with people I didn't know, but who treated me extremely well. They all added up something to my life.

Literature, cooking, eating (isn't it one of the greatest pleasures in life?), dancing, hicking, having a drink with friends and talking over all kinds of subjects for hours, swimming in the ocean, walking on the beach during sunset... living...
