CouchSurfing is a worldwide network for making connections between travelers and the local communities they visit. The idea is to share a beer/meet a foreigner/share a couch. This is similar to Homestays in Kerala but without money. I think the greatest advantage is that you are getting a partner in the other country so that if you visit their place , you are sure to get a couch/beer/advice in return.
The United States and Europe are where CouchSurfing is most popular, but we have members in over 240 countries and territories (even Antarctica!). CouchSurfers use over 330 different languages, and live in over 79,000 different cities.
Join Couch surfing and the communities you like.
CouchSurfing is your ticket to explore the world -- from the road or from your own home.
