HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Help people on their travels... Write me I´m here to help you not only to host and be hosted.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Well what can I said? CS is a great idea !!! I think the most important thing is to meet new people from other counties with differetnt cultures and lifestyles. therefore you would be able to stablish a strength bond. To save money on accommodation is a bonus, the most important thing is the friendship you can construct latter on. All my CS experiences have been great, CS is a great non-profit project (not now, so far yes 2016 edit) . CS community should preserve as pure as possible!!!!. Definitely this is a great experience for enrich yourself and give beautiful thing to others.
