Looking for a couch in the area of Barcelona around August 22 till 30.

Hola !

I'm new on CouchSurfing, but already spent many hours on it reading profiles. One CS member just told me today about family groups, so I'm discovering the concept and hope to soon be more active.

Right now, I feel embarrassed as I finally decided to get registred on this site as I am looking for a place to overnight in the area of Barcelona with my family (companion and 4 children : 5, 11, 14 and 15 y.o.). Usually, I prefer to first offer something and than get something, not necessary from the same person : I believe that help and knowledge should travel all around the world, not only between two people ;^), but being new and asking right away feels strange to me.

We are a homechooling family and to know a few more about us, you can watch a little tv-report from 2007 here :

So, we would like to arrive and visite around Barcelona during the week of August 22 till August 30 (we are leaving home on Sunday 21st and won't have internet after). We'll arrive by car, driving from France (Strasbourg) and would like to stay some days to visit the city and around. We are all very calm and respectful people. We don't smoke and don't have pets (allergy). We are used to sleep in one room, even on the floor and will bring our sleeping bags, towels, sleeping-flour-carpet.

Now, would it be possible and before all, would some of ou like to host us ?

I wish you all nice day and will maybe have the pleasure to meeting some of you.

Good evening,
Just for information and politness, I'd like to tell you that I've found the "impossible couch" : a place to overnight with my family (6 persons) at 20 minutes from Barcelona, so long we'd like; not on CS but within homeschooling europeen families =^)
Keep believing !
Agnès O. happy to see that she's not that utopist : dreams DO come true ! =^D
