Couchsurfing connects travelers to free couches worldwide

Posted on October 24, 2008. Filed under: Travel & Leisure | Tags: , , , , |

One of the best ways to learn about a different country or city, the culture, get the real flavor of a place and find out about the best things to see and do when you are traveling is to ask a local and/or hang where the locals do. You can’t get any closer to that local source or more personal than this… If you are traveling to or visiting somewhere and want to find a free place to sleep or if you’ve got a couch a traveler can crash on, read on about couchsurfing.com.

The CouchSurfing 2.0 Mission

Participate in Creating a Better World, One Couch at a Time

CouchSurfing seeks to internationally network people and places, create educational exchanges, raise collective consciousness, spread tolerance and facilitate cultural understanding.

As a community we strive to do our individual and collective parts to make the world a better place, and we believe that the surfing of couches is a means to accomplish this goal.

CouchSurfing is not about the furniture, not just about finding free accommodations around the world; it’s about making connections worldwide. We make the world a better place by opening our homes, our hearts, and our lives. We open our minds and welcome the knowledge that cultural exchange makes available. We create deep and meaningful connections that cross oceans, continents and cultures. CouchSurfing wants to change not only the way we travel, but how we relate to the world!
