Surf Your Turf

January 22, 2009

If not for hospitality sites such as CouchSurfing,
the millions of Obama fans who descended on DC would have faced a very
long night out in the cold.

Sure, the idea of kipping with total strangers gives many people the
creeps, but for millions of travellers worldwide CouchSurfing is a
cheap, sociable alternative to hotelsnot to mention a more authentic one.

All you do is create your free profile, browse others’ in cities you
plan to visit, request a couch and surf away.

And CouchSurfer is not limited to finding a futon in Frankfurt or a
mattress in Marrakech. Surfers can also hook up with locals willing to
show them around their city.

As Ghandi said, The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the
service of others.
