Barbara, who works on our Community Support team, is a mother of two and a long-time Couchsurfer who, more than anything, loves to meet other Couchsurfing families. So this summer she went to the International Family Weekend in Poland.
During the weekend Barbara and her family saw wild bison, learned to hand-make bracelets and picked mushrooms, on top of meeting other fascinating families from around the world.
Barbara’s favorite memory though was sitting by the fire with everyone each night, swapping stories and sharing their lives.
"Couchsurfing makes me a better mother", says Barbara. Before Poland’s Family Weekend she spent time Couchsurfing in Indonesia. Her entire family climbed a volcano, ate grilled snake and took a four-day fishing trip. But her favorite memory was her three-year-old son returning from a motorbike trip with his father, their other son, aged 1, strapped in a baby carrier on her husband’s back.
We think Couchsurfing and hosting are great ways for families to learn about the world together. To get started, read our Family Tips page or watch the video below.
