on da way to antwerp

Antwerp's our next destination after Bruges. We're so exciting to go to Antwerp cause we'll stay with people that we knew from the internet but we had never met in real life before...

After I knew exactly date for our Belgium trip,  I contacted a few CSers who lived in Antwerp cause I know it's very difficult to find a host for 4 people and during summer time like on August.... most of replied to say they can't host us but one of my replied who can't host me & my friends cause he'll out of town. He recommend me to mail to Yuri and lucky for us, when Yuri replied and said that wouldn't be a problem and we were than welcome to come and stay with him so we exchanged a few emails before I left on my flight...

My friends and I had a very very good time staying with Yuri and his girlfriend, Anna (at his comfy apartment). Yuri was my first host even I was the member of CouchSurfing since last June 2007 ... Yuri and Anna were really welcoming. Anna and her younger sister, Kasia made our stay in Antwerp so special by showing us around this beautiful town, introducing us with her nice friends and we had dinner party at his place. It's so pity that we'd very short time in Antwerp but it was one of our best experiences in Belgium & a great first-time couch surfing experience also.
