Travelling the world on a budget comes with finding resourceful alternatives! This is how I found couchsurfing, three years ago. Studying abroad and spending too much money on unnecessary stuff resulted in a dilemma: I had one full month of travelling left and I had almost no money. I was also travelling alone, as a 19-year-old girl. The perfect solution: couchsurfing! Staying with locals in exchange for cultural exchange!
In my opinion is not a free accommodation. Couchsurfing is sharing! Sharing a home, food, drinks, culture, and laughs! Over my three years of experience, hosting over fifteen people and surfing with more than twenty hosts I have come to learn so many new things. And I have seen places from the most personal view!
