Boots Are Made for Walking, Couches Are Made for Surfing.

Hang Ten, Brah. 

Need to get away but you are low on the cash? Perfect. 

All you need is a link to this site and a couch. 

Couch Surfing. org was founded in 2004 by people who believed that cultures could intermingle. Mormons, Quakers, Chinatown, Downtown, Hippies, White Collars and everyone in between are invited. In over 230 countries, Couch Surfing. org has connected over 1 million travelers by letting them crash on each other's couches. Sounds sick, right?

Well for those of you like myself who seem to attract creepers (especially during the Ins and Outs of working at In N Out) , you may wonder, "how do I know who I am bunking with?" Everyone who is involved in the process of "Couch Surfing" is given a background test. If you are sketchy, have some weird xenophobia (fear of strangers for those who don't like big words), or just shouldn't have people in your house because it should be on an episode of hoarders, than you will be denied. So I suggest, if you fall under any of those categories, please do not apply.

Still paranoid? Click here for some of the safety precautions the site provides:

So drink beer in Germany. Run with the bulls in Madrid. See the ghosts of the Tower of London.

And ride your couch into the sunset off into the great unknown world.

Travel On,

Alyssa Gallion
