My new friend Bee reminded me about couchsurfing the other day so I promptly signed up.
I have a spare room and I spend half my life feeling semi-lonely because I’m a pack poodle as opposed to a lone wolf. I would happily welcome random travellers into my home, especially if they speak English.
I have also emailed an American guy who lives in Tokyo to see if he might be open to hosting me for the two nights I don’t have accommodation booked. Based on his profile, he likes monkeys.
I LIKE MONKEYS. We’re practically best friends.
Bee tells me she’s had wonderful experiences of being welcomed into the homes of complete strangers. I wonder what my couchsurfing journey will be like?
Have you ever couchsurfed or hosted a surfer? What was it like? Do you recommend it?
