We’ve been members of Couchsurfing since 2006 and we are both City Ambassadors in Atlanta. Before the company incorporated a few years ago, Halef was a member of the worldwide Member Dispute and Safety Team. We’ve both hosted forums for new members in Atlanta and we organize meet-ups in the city when we can. We’re Couchsurfing experts and can help you with lots of great Couchsurfing tips! We’ve hosted nearly 500 people. From Nashville to Indonesia and everywhere in between, we’ve stayed with dozens of people the world over.
Couchsurfing connects you to the local culture
And you know what? It’s all free! But that’s not even the best part. Couchsurfing offers you a way to connect with locals around the world. Most Couchsurfers are very cool people who want you to experience their city – not just visit the main tourist traps and leave. They want you to really feel like you go to know their hometowns. When you stay with a good Couchsurfer, you’ll feel like you really experienced what it’s like to be a local. So, are you tired of eating at McDonald’s or chain restaurants in the cities you visit? Do you want to see where the people who live in countries and cities far and wide really like to eat, drink, and go for entertainment?
If you do, then staying with locals is definitely the way to go! Eventually, you’ll have a friend in every city. And who knows? You might even be the one giving Couchsurfing tips to your friends down the road!
