Hello. Bonjour. Namaste. Salam.
COUCHSURFING!!!! (imagine that I’m singing this with an operatic voice). I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS amazing invention! So I’m back in Canada after six years and well its important to know people…so I thought to myself. Why not check out Couchsurfing? I’ve met some amazing, awesome, fabulous people through it.
So what is this couch surfing business all about? Well. It refers to a concept where by you can explore a new place or city through individuals that are in the city you will be visiting or moving to. Through the couch surfing platform, you can connect to people that can offer you a place to stay (bed or couch) for a few days and have the opportunity to explore a city. Also, within each city are events that are organized by Couchsurfers which provides a great way to connect with amazing, awesome people.
So here are 5 Reasons to Love Couchsurfing
1. Couchsurfing is Coool.
This is such an amazing way to meet new people and travel as well. I adore Couchsurfing and highly recommend. It is such a unique concept!
2. Safety is a priority
I have never been disappointed. One of the first questions I get when I tell people about this concept is: Isn’t weird that you just meet random people or just let some random person sleep in your house? Also, each individual can choose who they would want to ask for a couch as well. Also, there’s a recommendation system on Couchsurfing so you can see what people say about an individual.

3. Explore a City from a Local Perspective!
This is such an amazing way to meet new people and travel as well. You really get a better understanding of a city through a more “local” perspective instead of a “tourist” one. I adore Couchsurfing and highly recommend.
4. Make new Friends
Even if you have been living in a city for awhile, you can use Couchsurfing to connect with amazing people. Its such a good way to connect to diversity, travel, and amazing people! YEAH COUCHSURFING. Thank you for allowing me to meet such amazing people.
5. Join a Global Network
There are millions of Couchsurfers all over the world in more than 93,000 cities. It is truly a global network that seeks to make the world friendlier and smaller, one life-changing Couchsurfing experience at a time.
