Back to the Past – III

Third post of this series! A bit unsurprisingly, August is the month where I have less articles. Actually, I literally only 4 articles posted in August (of different years), and only two in English! So, a short back to the past article this time.

What is CouchSurfing?

This post is a mix of feelings for me, nice memories of great experiences I had with couchsurfing, and a bit of sadness for what it is nowadays. The video isn’t outdated, that is still supposed to be the couchsurfing I met, the community is what changed and why I disconnected with it. Nevertheless, I totally recommend experiences alike, spend time with locals and get to live the place you’re visiting 🙂


Galway Races 2011

That was an experience! Ireland has a strong culture of betting on any kind of sports, and races are probably one of the most popular ones. Galway Races take place in end July, beginning of August, and they are really popular here! People from all over go to Galway because of the races and all the events around that. I had to try it, so I did, it was also my first time in Galway 🙂

And this is all for August’s Back to the Past 🙂 More next month!
