You create a profile, upload pictures and detailed info about yourself, what you have to offer, your travel habits etc. and you connect with other travellers while being on the road or get to know visitors to your home town. You give whatever you feel like and can afford: a common cup of coffee, a city tour or couch to stay on for a few days. Also, there are several events like hikes or parties organised within the community.
Before living with Dan I have pondered the idea of being a host a few times, but somehow never pulled through, would be weird to be alone with someone you don't know. I have now met other female couchsurfers, who have had the same concerns at first, which turned out to be unjustified
Now that I got a man to protect me (teehee), we opened up our home to a few travellers so far. Not only have we found out about South Korean culture, rediscovered our city by showing
around our Polish couchsurfer or had a fun night out at a game hall
with our English guest, we also got to know some of our friends here in Stockholm over the network.
We have not been hosted yet, but are trying to build up some reliability for the world tour. I can only imagine, it is like visiting friends, who moved to another place... but that we have to yet find out.
