The CouchSurfing Experience




The first time I ever used the CouchSurfing service was when I bought tickets to Halifax on a whim on the last day of a seat sale. I didn't know anyone in Halifax, so I contacted a girl who looked really cool and amazing.  When her Mom picked me up from the airport she said she didn't want me to miss Peggy's Cove while I was there, and took me directly to the waterfront. It was February, none of the shops were open, the wind was blowing and the waves were crashing against the shore. I was totally amazed - and then their house was amazing! All the experiences I have had staying with strangers for CouchSurfing have been TOTALLY amazing. Highly recommended.
