Couch Surfing (CS) and Hospitality CLub (HC)

For those people who loves travelling and always like to know more and understand the local cultures of the places they visit, go and check out the following sites, Couch Surfing ( www.couchsurfing.com ) and Hospitality Club ( www.hospitalityclub.org ). It's a good way to travel as it can saves you a lot of money if you can some member to host you (especially if you are travelling to places like Europe and US) but the main point of the sites is not only offerring you free accomodation but to understand and respect other peoples' culture and lifestyle. Please refrain from treating your host as someone who only provide you with free accomodation as it's not respectful. Spend some time to chat and talk to your host or guest (if you are hosting). Please take some time to read the philosophy of both the sites before enrol as member. HAPPY TRAVELLING
