Couchsurfing

Last Update: June 21, 2017

This is not an endorsement for Couchsurfing but with millions of followers; it is worth a look - sleep on someone's couch for a few dollars.

At first, I thought it was for young adventurous folks, but I now see eighty-year-olds using it. An eighty-year-old American lady was cycling through France.

I'm planning a trip to downtown Boston, and the hotel rates are, well it makes you reconsider. Airbnb I've seen offerings for a

couch in Boston via Airbnb also, but Couchsurfing goes one step further by having fellow "couchers" meet up when they are in the same city.

I might try this for one night when my adventurous mode kicks in who knows there could be hidden opportunities in this niche.

That is really interesting! There are offers for guest visiting even though you don't know the people who you accommodate or visit :)
