10/10 would recommend spending the night & following day with a random stranger from the internet in a foreign city :)

Seriously though, we had a lot of fun. And Cumol and his roommates were all very patient as I practiced my German, which was nice. We're already planning to meet up again at some point!

How can you call a random stranger from hubski a "random stranger from the internet"? You are thoroughly vetted on hubski. Even someone with as silly a name as flagamuffin spent a night in my bed. (Given he's from Amerrika, it was foreign.) (Mind you, I went to another neighbourhood, another house, another bed - but even so...)

Hubski: where everyone knows your (fake) name.

It was very weird to use our "real" names. I felt much more comfortable to call galen "galen", even though I had no idea how I would pronounce it

Haha, very true. Cumol and I agreed that both of us would be totally comfortable meeting up with anyone from Hubski. Mostly I was joking :)
