Also try I used them for the first time a few months back. I had been in contact with a girl that I found on the website a while back and she kindly let me stay at her place when in Japan for a coupld of days!!!Ive since met up with 2 people who contacted me via the website and shown them around London which was fun!!!Also I have been in contact with a couple of people from hospitality club in preparation to my India trip one of which has resulted in being invited to an Indian family wedding so Im looking forward to that!!!!My friend is a regular user of couchsurfing and she prefers it so check them out and see what you find!
