What is this Couchsurfing thing you ask? Couchsurfing International Inc. is a hospitality exchange and social networking website. The website provides a platform for members to "surf" on couches by staying as a guest at a host's home, host travelers, or join an event. Melissa is a host in Couchsurfing and will talk about how she chooses who she hosts. She also shares some not so good experiences with Couchsurfers and also the super interesting and fun ones. She talked about her rules as a host which make it much easier for you to figure out how you should get into the Couchsurfing world easier. She also answered a lot of questions about Couchsurfing and why Couchsurfing is not for her. She also gave advice for first time couch surfers and those who would like to try Couchsurfing.
