Participate in Creating a Better World, One Couch at a Time, or how to find free accomodations and adventures with the locals nearly anywhere on earth


"Hello! The members of the CouchSurfing community welcome you and hope to see you on their couches someday soon.
Your first impression of CouchSurfing might be that you are joining to find a free place to stay or people to hang out with while you are traveling on any continent in the world. After your first experience of either surfing or hosting, you'll find out that what you get out of it is so much more. CouchSurfing is about participating in change. We make a better world by opening our homes, our hearts, and our lives. We open our minds and welcome the knowledge cultural exchange makes available. In sharing important moments, deep and meaningful connections cross oceans, continents and cultures. The friendships made through CouchSurfing enhance members' lives and contribute greatly to making the world a better, safer, more peaceful place. Signing up for a free couch and ending up with amazing adventures and a global family that's what we call the CouchSurfing experience!
One last note: You don't need a couch to join! As long as you anticipate sharing your couch sometime in your lifetime, or have already shared it, you're 100% welcome here! Cheers!"

How cool! Doesn't this get you rethinking all those travel dreams?
