We have been on Couchsurfing and Hospitality Club for more than 3 years and have hosted a whole lot of people from various nationalities. These websites are a network of travelers who enjoy meeting other travelers and can offer free accommodation or advice. These websites are a great way to find accommodation for free or at least get advice on local things to-do or must-sees. Most travelers are not comfortable staying at someone’s place, and there are obvious concerns of safety and hygiene, but we have had great guests and owners as well.
These online tools are great way to save money and experience the local flavors with people who know their city. Now, we have to find ways to visit Stuttgart, Munich, Rio de Janeiro, Caribbean, Paris, Netherlands, etc.
So go ahead and register to these sites, if you haven’t already.
