I have a lots of shoes.. a lot !!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've done couch surfing in 2009 during a trip in America (Mexico, Ciba, USA, Canada) with my ex-boyfriend. That brought us so so so many good experiences and incredible memories (and also weird but funny ones). I also did some couch surfing in Denmark, where I lived and studies for two years. I though it was the best way to meet locals rather than other expats, and get the best tips from a small town, but also an amazing way to learn more about Danish culture.
