This way of travel changed my life. You create a profile and when in need search where you will be traveling and see if anyones couch is available. You have references and so do people offering their couches. Take your pick who you want to stay with and send them a messege, that easy! Amazing experince meeting amazing people! Sign up. . .

David Leininger is a friend of mine whom I had met in Rockford, IL while I couchsurfed with a guy named Scott. David is a very talented Web/Graphic Designer and devout Catholic. You should check this site out.
He also has a blog website too: http://davidleininger.tumblr.com
This site and idea is amazing. When you buy something on this site, half of what you spend goes to a charity or some form of donation. The best part about it is that you pick where it goes. Very cool. I hope to one day start a company with the idea of something similar.
