Probably you know the idea or at least you heard the word “couchsurfing”. And if not – you really should! Couchsurfing is the world’s largest social travel network, connecting a global community of travelers. Although it is a worldwide community of more than 6 million people in 100,000 cities who will open their homes to guests at no charge, Couchsurfing aims to bring like-minded, travel-oriented people together for the sheer good of it—the cultural exchange, the personal connection. And one of the benefits is that you can obtain insider, locals-only travel advice before you leave home, and a comfortable place to sleep free of charge when you get to your destination.
