While in a foreign country, stay in my house.

And this is called Couch Surfing.

A news story that appeared in a magazine reported this novel idea of sharing a couch in a stranger's place while traveling abroad. This is very useful for those who travel with a low budget and cannot afford hotel accommodation.

This paves way for exchange of friendship and culture and can bridge a lasting relationship between the two countries.

The organizers say in their web site," We create deep and meaningful connections that cross oceans, continents and cultures. CouchSurfing changes not only the way we travel, but how we relate to the world!"

When you surf a couch, you are a guest at someone's house. They will provide you with some sort of accommodation, a penthouse apartment or maybe a back yard to pitch your tent in. Stays can be as short as a cup of coffee, a night or two, or even a few months or more.

And you can also be a host to someone from a distant land.When you offer your couch, you have complete control of who visits. The possibilities are endless and completely up to you.

The friendships made through CouchSurfing enhance members' lives and contribute greatly to making the world a better, safer, more peaceful place. Signing up for a free couch and ending up with amazing adventures and a global family--that's what CouchSurfing is all about!

Thank you
