bringing cultures closing together by bridging cultural gaps
Couch surfing is a special way to bring cultures together. in my research I am focused on cultural differences (a sociological study) and by participating in couchsurfing I hope to help bridging gaps between cultures.
Adding to others life as well as your own life by building on a worldwide community.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
You can always send me a message if you are in Amsterdam and want to have a couch. I love showing people from other cultures around through the beautiful Amsterdam with all its canals and beautiful old buildings.
This year I met three people from the USA, who I offered my couch after we had spoken for a couple of hours about the differences and similarities between the American and European/Dutch culture. They told me what couchsurfing is and this motivated me to participate in this worldwide community.
music, socialising, meeting people from other countries/cultures, doing non-profit aid work, sport
Music, Movies, and Books
Well, this one is a difficult topic, as I am a huge fan of theatres and movies, so I could put a whole list here, maybe you'd better invite me for an evening at the cinema.

Teach, Learn, Share
Always listen why cultures are the way they are. Do not judge to quickly. Every culture can have its own specific merit.
