My friend, Adrienne, wrote this post about couch surfing and shared this video that made me so happy I started crying. I had to copy her and put it here.
And totally ripping her off, here is her definition of couch surfing:
"In a nutshell, Couch Surfing is a community of individuals that open their homes and hearts to travelers from around the world Couch Surfing is a network that connects strangers, who are really just friends they haven't met yet. The host couch surfer, invites the traveling couch surfer, into their home for whatever period of time is negotiated. This could be one night or one month."
