My first couchsurfing experience was as a host. The couchsurfer was Helge Ebinger, a 22-year old music student from Stuttgart, Germany. He arrived at my place Sunday, August 19th at 11:00 pm.
We hung out with a few of my friends and got to know each other. He said he was from “The Black Forest” and we can call him “HEL” (short for Helge). We all got a good laugh out of that because he didn’t realize how dark that sounded. Helge stayed four nights until he eventually found a temporary room to rent.
He will be studying music at CSUN until July 2013.
