Anyone else tried :)

It's a lot of fun, folks offer up their couches, or you offer up yours for folks to crash on while they are in town. I have a roomate, so can't have complete strangers on my couch presently (though random people I meet at dharma events, sure! lol)


I tried it out when I was visiting Haiti. Really nice folks. They brought me around to a few places in the city I was visiting, and kept inviting me out dancing :). The only catch was that I had to pretend I wasn't there just to learn Vodou at the next stop lolol.


Have to be careful though, many of the "couch surfing" opportunities on some of the third world countries (esp egypt) are just a scam to get money out of you for staying with them. Some are even youth hostels using it to advertise.
