Couchsurfing 2

Couchsurfing is a global community that offers free lodging to travelers.

We have the traveling bug, but our budget doesn’t always allow us to fly off to explore exotic new cities.  There is however, an awesome community around the world that can help you travel without breaking the bank.  Couchsurfing is a website that connects travelers with hosts that will let them stay in their house for free.

An innovative concept, it is built on the premise that travel makes you richer and cultural exchange fosters mutual respect.  With over 10 million people in more than 200,000 cities this is the ideal place to make a connection and save money while traveling.

Anyone can be part of this community-all you need to do is sign up by filling out a profile form.  Next do a city search for the city (or cities!) you plan to visit and browse through the listing for the locals with couches available. There is ample choice to pick from the hosts you can stay with.  Once you find the hosts that most match your personal preferences just send them a Couchrequest for the dates and include a personal message about why you want to stay with them.

Couchsurfing is a brilliant concept that is definitely worth exploring if you love to travel without the fuss of staying in a 5 star hotel.
