I recently spent 2 months backpacking throughout Europe with my boyfriend. We met a guy there from Canada who stayed with host families instead of in hostels. They made a trade where if you stayed with these familes you had to offer your own home when you return. Does anyone know of this program, or have the website, or anything like this?
thanks a katrillizillion!

theres a website called Hospitality club which can be found at and its a place where people put offers for guests to stay at their homes, I used this website and stayed with a Japanese girl when I was over there and it worked out pretty well, she was nice and we got on!
Depending on where you are going several places in asia have websites and organisations arranging for homestays!
