I am a huge advocate of Couchsurfing! I’ve loved every experience I’ve had with the travel sharing site. While some might have a stigma about meeting strangers and sleeping on their couch, overall the people you’ll meet are more like you than you probably think.
Every time I get the chance to Couchsurf I try my best to take advantage of the situation – after all, you’re staying with someone who’s from the place you’re visiting. You never know what they could teach you that you otherwise would never have known about the area!
Places I’ve Couchsurfed:
