CouchSurfing.com helps you make connections worldwide. You can use the network to meet people and then go and surf other members’ couches!
When you surf a couch, you are a guest at someone’s house. They will provide you with some sort of accommodation, a penthouse apartment or maybe a back yard to pitch your tent in. Stays can be as short as a cup of coffee, a night or two, or even a few months or more. There are more than 50.000 registered CouchSurfers from 184 countries. Plenty of choice I’d say.
