I will share my first couchers experience (as they also do in host a sister group)!
So i got to know @anon46748786 through this forum. We exchanged messages and he asked me where i am from (we are all from europe, borders from our countrys are open and as a keyworker i can do corona test- so pls no judging for travelling!)
Actually i wasnt so far away from him and he already had a trip to @tieflow planned. He connected me with him as well and we asked for a couch.
So i hosted adrian for 1 night before and after our trip to florian, where we stayd 3 nights.
I saw both of their profiles on CS, I knew they were experienced couchsurfers and i knew them online from writing here. I couldnt check for friendly stars (what i normally do), bc florian has older references and adrian just personal ones. Still i trusted them. I trusted them bc i thought they have the CS spirit, I didnt need fancy profile nor pics.
We had a great time together and i would call them my friends now
Just wanted to share, bc i think, if you are willing to contribute here, you really live the original Cs spirit and than you dont need fancy app. Still i am looking forward do write real references here. So far i did on BW and personal on CS- were i mentioned couchers. I hope i will not get banned on CS for mentioning it in reference…?
Did you also already have couchers experience? (People you didnt know before) Share it with me
