Couchsurfing is a website that offers the members social media and hospitality exchange. This site is specifically popular to travelers around the world. The way it works is, people can connect to other people around the world if they need a place to crash in while traveling. It is a cheap alternative and will help you avoid hotel costs and at the same time help travelers meet different people from around the world. For travel enthusiasts, this has been a great help. You do not need to actually need a place to stay to be a member of this group. Some people use it to meet people locally for food or drinks. It’s for everyone! It is about learning cultures through meeting people and the possibility of life long friendship. I myself have been a member for a few years now and have taken advantage of the perks of meeting strangers while traveling and it’s definitely worth checking out!
