A new Subgroup

Hi guys
I'd like to inform you of a new sub-group that has been created for you all... It's a group for those of you looking for travel partners or ride sharing in Iceland. It's a pretty self explanatory group, but I hope it will be useful :)
Happy surfing

Hi guys,

There are a few companies, both legit companies and pretend companies without all licenses and insurance, that are renting out cars through couchsurfing.

Although in theory there's nothing wrong with that, given that people are allowed by law to rent them out and have the appropriate insurance, I want to point out that these particular companies in most cases cannot offer the same service as the bigger car rental companies that have an office in every town around the country. So, if your car brakes down they may not be able to respond quickly enough or offer you a substitute car. Please keep that in mind when you are deciding which company to go with.

Furthermore, if the cars are not properly insured and you get into an accident where you hurt yourself or others you could be in big trouble!

Please make sure you have all the information you need before you make such a booking or pay anyone any money!!!

Today I post a message here in this group to share my experience in Mexico as a social worker with other people who are looking for such an experience like that and give them some tips that can help them while they are traveling.

But unfortunately I received a really bad Message from this Member


her in this group telling me:


Which kind of terrorist i post here!!
I really cannot understand what those people have in their mind !

I hope that those people have this kind of mentality to raise to be Humans, because for me there is no difference between people because of their Religion, Nationality or Color!

I am so sorry but Two Muslims came to my home and they did many bad thing to me and to my sister when I made food for them but it was a little pork inside...
They wanted to make sex with my sister but i didn't allowed them, but when they left my house i understood that they stole many thing and they wrote to me:
"You are fucking stupid Christian, Fuck you and your sister"
this why I don't like any Muslims people and i never allow Muslims people come to my home and i change my profile here.
Sorry if my English is not good, but I know well Greek and Hebrew.

No kidding ? You invite muslim people and you cook them pork: very clever !
Looks like you started the game.
Anyway, I'm sorry for you to have met two really bad guys and how they behaved. This may be a reason to dislike these two guys.
But "this (is) why I don't like any Muslims people"...
and by the way, I give myself the right to mug the first peaceful muslim girl passing by...that's quite frightful !
Now am I supposed to think that all people from Cyprus think and act like you ?
Am I supposed to think when I meet a" fucking stupid christian" (muslim, jew, buddhist, or whatever...) that all christians (or muslims, jews, buddhists, or whatever) are "fucking stupid" ?

Turn off your tv, turn on your brain.

Peace ειρήνη سلام שלום

Thank you for your message, I respect all people in the world but if they also respect me and my sister "because i live with my young sister"
Mr. DOMOSSAFIR .... you laugh at me and you think I cooked pork purposely, but "God knows" I didn't know that was pork, because I had a little meet in my freezer and my sister made that food, and when we all ate, then we understood that was pork.... Sorry my english is not good and I can not explain you well :( But I believe in Jesus Christ and God knows that I say true.
If I come to your place and you make any food I will eat and I never threaten you, because Jesus Christ say any thing you eat is Clean, and if i don't like it and eat it, I never insult you and you sister who made food for me....!
Am I not right that I say I NEVER EVER allow Muslims to come to my house???
Because Even me.. I never go to Muslims house.
I am so sorry I am not racist Christian, I am human but NOT "Fucking stupid Christian"
Thank you

Dear Tony.
I am sorry to hear about your bad exsperience. You are in your right to say who is welcome to your home and who not but I hope you don´t jugde all muslims for that.
I want to ask you to watch your language in your posts in here and with people that you write message to. There is no need for calling people names if they have don´t have anything to do with you not liking some people.
All the best

MISS Celine Perrot
I'm so sorry I can Not believe you at all as you wrote:
"I know many muslims men, from many different countries... I never had any problems with. But I had pretty hard problems with french, italian and samisk"
So Answer me: So Why do you live in France?????
Why don't you go to one Muslim Country to live????
I can believe you just if you speak and you put it in practice, there are many Muslim country in the world, so if you really don't like French and Italian and Samisk people and if you have problem with them and if you don't have problem with Muslim,, THAT IS OK, Just go and live in one Muslim country and then you will change your opinion,
Go to live there but Not go as tourist, Go to live forever and after 2 or 3 years or more you will understand me, what i say........
Jesus Christ say: Be aware and Watch out from people who just talk in good language but never put it in practice.
I am in Iceland now, and I like and I love Iceland, If i don't like Iceland and I have problem with the people, I go back to my country but if I stay here and I always say: "I don't like Iceland,, I have problem with Iceland's people and I like Muslims people" and if I again stay here and don't go back to my country,,, so I AM 100 per cent STUPID AND CRAZY
Are you agree with me or Am I right or NOT????????????????

"sorry if my English is not Good, because I'm not English speaker" but Greek speaker <3

I think its really shallow and stupid to judge people just by their religion, nationality or culture. Assholes exist everywhere, all around the world no matter in what god they believe in or where they were born.
There is already enough racism in this world anyway. I cant believe you are taking part in this project since its about fighting prejudices, sharing ideas and cultures and especially getting to know the individuals.
