All the places where I couchsurfed

I've been using couchsurfing.com since 2012 or so. Mostly for events and meeting up through the Hangouts feature on the app, but I also stayed with quite a few people.

I will try to make this chronological, and hopefully I won't leave out any.

    1. Paris ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท

    This was my first couchsurfing experience. It was for my 17th or 18th birthday, my parents got me a ticket to see Paul McCartney in concert. I looked for the keyword "Paul McCartney" or "Beatles" while looking for a host to increase my chances, and it worked: the guy was also going to the concert. I was an awkward kid back then, though.

    2. Malmรถ ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช

    3. Stockholm ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช

    4. Helsinki ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ฎ

    5. Tartu ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ช

    6. Saint-Petersburg ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ

    7. Tehran ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ท

    Such a great way to experience top notch Persian hospitality.

    8. Montreal ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

    9. Winnipeg ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

    10. Regina ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

    11. Calgary ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

    12. Vancouver ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

    13. Portland, Oregon ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

    By meeting someone at a couchsurfing event rather than sending a couch request beforehand.

    14. McKinleyville or Eureka or one of those towns, can't remember, California

    15. Chicago, Illinois ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

    16. Toronto ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

    17. Copenhagen ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ฐ

    18. Kristiansand ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ด

    19. Playa del Carmen ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ

    20. Puerto Morelos ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ

    My first host was a flat earthen trying to convert people. It was WEIRD. My second host was Mireia and she was lovely.

    21. Istanbul ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ท

    There was my experience with my good friend ร–mer (whom I actually met at a Couchsurfing event in the Taksim neighborhood), and a couple of other ones. One of them was weird: it was with a girl I had met up for coffee a few days before. She seemed nice, a bit weird but not necessarily in a bad way. Very friendly. She ended up being a creep.

    22. Ohrid ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฐ

    Lovely, quiet town. Great host, Damian, whom I've met up since in Istanbul and Sofia.

    23. Thessaloniki ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ท

    One of my favorite hosts, Viki! There was another couchsurfer, Vasya, and we all instantly got along great. So nice when this happens. I miss them both!

    24. Tbilisi ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ช
