CouchSurfing

3 years, 7 months ago

Check out this site,

http://www.couchsurfing.org/

People all over the world are willing to let people stay at their homes for free. I found one friend who used this site to travel all over Europe and Africa with this site.

I’ve gone through a lot of the profiles and most people are very similar to HEthens. They all want to unite the world by meeting people from different places. I just joined… anyone who comes to Phoenix is welcome to couch-surf at my place (I’m serious about this offer).

This might be the coolest thing I’ve seen online in awhile.

And I’ll come visit you in Phoenix sometime as long as you come visit in Denver.

Well for all its out of the way up in the North of England it is a beautiful historic city that is easy to get around. We’ve got Durham close by which is about as old as cities get, Edinburgh 2 hours up the road (along with Edinburgh castle and its an awesome place in general) then of course the Scottish Highlands – Glen Coe mountain range road particularly as a port of call after which is my favourite place in the world so far and tied with sacolabra majorca best driving route in the world for me so far.

Not much to the south – middlesborough a greater hive of scum and villany you will not find!

So if finances allow – get up here. I’ve got a sofa bed though from experience of getting kicked out of bed by my ex-missus the three seater couch is far more comfortable!

This is totally legit–my sister’s done this a few times & said it was always a great experience. I’m up near the Adirondack’s in NY—and my indoor couch folds out into a futon (ooooo) and there’s 2 couches to choose from on my outdoor screened in porch (ahhhh)…. You guys are all totally welcome :)

ugh… i’m sorry. I hope they mentioned that on the site. The site’s security seems to be based around positive/negative feedback from the host or surfer. anyone with a negative feedback has a very difficult time arranging any other meetups.

I’ve been on this site for a couple of years and used it from time to time. Some of my friends travelled a lot using couch surfing so I do recommend it. If anyone here plans to come to wild Romania, my home is your home ;)

@luigi, You probably have heard that we have some of the nicest girls in Europe. :) Maybe Ukraine and Russia have more beautiful girls. You’re welcome anytime to come by and “steal our women” :)

Lithuania: 3.2 million, Romania: 21 million. So in terms of numbers, you could say we have more :). But, yes, if you like thin blonde blue-eyed girls, you can say that Lithuanian girls are quite charming.

I’ve been a member since last March. I haven’t been on a holiday proper since then so I haven’t surfed any couches yet. I have, however, hosted 37 people since I started, from Norway, UK, France, Italy, Austria, India, Canada, US, Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Switzerland, and the Netherlands.
I have met some great people and forged some friendships. I have met a lot of good people from the local CS community too. We regularly meet up for ceilidhs, bands, drinks,…
It is an opportunity to see the word cheaply while being hosted by interesting and thoughtful people that speak your language. Hosting is having the world come to you, and they are grateful guests.
It’s a good way to expose yourself to different cultures and languages too.
I have had 100% positive experiences. Do it!

@Dick… awesome job on hosting!! I haven’t hosted anyone yet (no one wants to visit Goodyear,az…understandably, haha).

I am doing a mini roadtrip right now from PHX-SLC-somewhere in Nevada-somewhere in California. I stayed in SLC last night and the guy was so awesome. There were 5 surfers there! They were all awesome, one dude played the guitar and sang for 45 minutes and was really good. Ira (the host) got up early and cooked breakfast for everyone… we all woke up to the smell of bacon and classical music, haha, awesome. I’m amazed how interesting CS’s are! Almost as interesting as HEthens ;)
