Couch Surfing

  • Published 2 years ago

This is a compilation of short video documentaries relating to the global phenomena of ” Couch Surfing”. I recommend that you look through them to get a feel for this exciting possibility to travel and visit people all over the world at minimum cost. You can experience all different cultures by meeting with hosts and staying free at their house or apartment. The videos take on an almost promotional feel to them but the clear non profiteering message is that all the participants simply wish to promote their own experiences so that others can follow or join them.

The variety is vast and this is an increasing sector in the travel market.

WWW.couchsurfing.com provides a social networking facility which gives everyone the opportunity to register either as a host or as a Couch Surfer. The site allows profiles to be posted and also has recommendations and appraisals so that you can get to know your host prior to arriving on their doorstep. I registered with Couchsurfers when I was having a year backpacking but have not yet done any surfing…this was almost 8 years ago when it was in it’s formative stages but now it has extended to literally MILLIONS of members…I will be making use of the site from now on.

Take time to check out this playlist and consider taking the plunge yourself.
