I'm in Namibia! 100 Countries Around the World!

Katowice, may 2011


I came to Katowice, it is 300km far from  Warsaw, close to Krakaw. I needed to go to Dąbrowa Górnicza, where I wanted to visit ArcelorMittal company. I could not find a host in Dąbrowa Górnicza (it’s a small town), so I was looking for someone to host me not far from this town.

When I saw Krzys’s profile on Couch Surfing I found his phone number and called him. He was very happy to meet me and invited me to his home. He lives with his wife Ela, they are a lovely couple, very friendly people. Four days I was staying at their home. Krzys is working at a television; it is the second largest television in Poland named Polsat. He took my interview for television after two days since I arrived.

While I was staying at Krzys’s house one more Couch Surfing friend came, a photographer. He liked Krzys’s home very much. We were sharing the same room, one of us was sleeping on the floor and another on bed then the next night we change places. It was a great fun.

We also invited more people there and made a cultural exchange evening: we cooked food, told about our cultures and enjoyed the time.

Krzys and Ela, you’re one of the happiest couples I met during my travel. Keep smiling and make people who are close to you happy.

Dear friends, my name is Somen Debnath. I am a resident of the village of Basanti, Sundarbans, West Bengal, which is a great mangrove forest and the largest tiger reserve in India. My "Around the World Bicycle Tour for HIV/AIDS Awareness Programme & Presentation of Indian Culture" started on 27th of May 2004, two days after I acquired Bachelor degree in Zoology from the University of Calcutta.

I will travel 200.000 km in the whole world and reach nearly 20 million people. 118.000 km I will travel for charity, that's why I'm selling my Km to people. The support I will get from people buying my kilometres will help me fulfill my other dream: to build a Global village in my native place, Basanti, Sundarbans.
