how Couchsurfing changed me

What I love about Couchsurfing is how it mixes up my life in colourful ways that I cannot imagine. It opened up so many windows for me and made me view the world in a totally different light. The world indeed is smaller than you think. Everything seems to be reachable and not as intimidating as you think it'd be.

For those who don’t know what Couchsurfing is, well, it is an online community of backpackers where you get to “surf” or stay in each other’s couches (not mutually exclusive); but essentially you get to travel and meet locals and go to places that tourists don’t know about; because travelling isn’t only about hotel rooms and tourist spots, it is the people you meet along the way that makes it even more special. Well, Couchsurfing makes you do that.

I think Couchsurfing is a tool for you to meet the people you never would have able to meet anywhere else. It’s like a portal and I guess if destiny permits then you meet. I am a big believer of destiny, not just on love, but also in friendships. I have made good friends from Couchsurfing.

Couchsurfing literally changed my life and I think it is the best thing that’s ever happened to travelling since cheap flights!

PS. Again, this is not a paid advertisment this is just my personal testimony. Couchsurfing is also a non-profit organization


  1. You call it couch surfer, I call it blog walking; but the results are the same. We meet new interesting people. People we wouldn't have the pleasure to meet face to face, either because of cost, time, effort, or distance or a combination there off. We might even add age as a factor, in life we tend to have friends our ages, here on the net we can mingle with people of all ages. Very cool indeed.

    I popped in for a visit from AFTR, hope you have a good day, and look forward to you popping in. Welcome mats always out.
    Traveling Suitcase is where the AFTR widget is, but your settings only allow the generic google signature, not name and url
