The Community

Alan was introduced to the Couchsurfing idea after simply searching about it online to find an easy way to connect with fellow travel-loving people like him. And on August 6, 2016, he started doing hangouts in his own city Antwerp together with a bunch of people from different nationalities. It was Couchsurfing Hangouts that made him open up his quite introverted self-being and it worked out quite well at the time.

He enjoyed the Couchsurfing way of thinking and invited travellers alike who were looking for a free couch to crash on and they were happy to have almost a whole house for them alone, except that they had to share it with Alan as he was still home at the time his parents and sisters went on a short trip without him.

It was during the year 2015 that he learned about the Couchsurfing website and their statement; staying at someone’s property and sleep either on their floor or couch for free. He planned a trip to Riga, Latvia, but as he was brand-new on the site he couldn’t find a place to stay for free.

Not that he didn’t want to pay for hotels or anything, in fact he had to pay for one as he couldn’t find a free couch. But for once in his travel life sleeping on a couch for free would be a very nice thing to happen, and it saves the wallet from being empty while returning back home.

Capturing old things on camera is one thing, presenting all our footage on this blog is another.
