After 4 positive experiences with the system, I cannot be anything else than enthusiastic.  

I was so surprised that it took only 2 weeks after making up a profile to get my first request: 2 young girls from Germany surfed my couch, and we had so much stories to tell each other, and spend a great evening together. 

 On our bike trip trough the Netherlands we thought we should try the surfing part too, so we searched for a host near Middelburg were we could easily get the first day. Wim Harwig’s profile got my attention, because of his philosophical way to fill it in. The most amazing thing he did for example is: getting married to Marjan. This guy must have something to tell!!!We did a request and it was accepted. Once at Wim and Marjan’s place we mediately felt at home, and we once again had a great time, and lots and lots to talk about. 

When we got back from our bike trip, we planned a camping weekend in our own garden with our children and grandchildren, and surprise surprise…we got a request from a couple of surfers from Paris. Although we didn’t really had much time to be occupied with our guests, we all had a fantastic weekend . Our guests were entertaining us with a role play around the table till 02 in the morning….We all had lots of laughs.  🙂 

We were just ready saying goodby to Anna and Somaninn when we got a new request: a young girl from the states wanted to stay for two nights at our place… She was hitchhiking from around Amsterdam and needed some rest. We got along real well and had again a wonderful time together. 

I’m exited to see, when we will have new guests, and looking forward to meet some hosts in Canada (BC) this August.
