As part of my one month South East Asian trip, I thought of giving couch surfing a try. I’ve signed up as a host on couchsurfing.com / https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/cathy-mendoza a couple of months back, but I wasn’t really hosting since the requests that I was receiving didn’t match my schedule, because I was on the road, traveling during those times. Still though, I’ve accommodated new found friends I met during some of my trips. There was one from the UK, another from France, and still another from the USA. I figured it’s a fun way to meet fellow travelers and hosts.
