Sisters Grace and Katherin are driving across country from San Jose, California to Massachusetts where they will be attending college. In order to save a little money and meet people along the way they are CouchSurfing and stayed in my little camper/guest house last night. They are two wonderfully amazing young ladies.
What is CouchSurfing you ask? Well, this is what the website has to say: “CouchSurfing is an international non-profit network that connects travelers with locals in over 230 countries and territories around the world. Our mission as an organization is to create inspiring experiences: cross-cultural encounters that are fun, engaging, and illuminating. We have a vision of a world where everyone can explore and create meaningful connections with the people and places they encounter.”
This is my second experience of hosting CouchSurfers. My first couple was Kendra & Peter. She from Portland, Oregon and he from the Czech Republic.
What a wonderful way to travel and meet people from around the world. If you’re interesting in participating check out their site. It seems very above board and safe. I look forward to Surfing some Couches myself in the future.
