Some of you have had questions or comments regarding the couchsurfing program we have used recently to stay with local hosts in Mexico City and Las Vegas.

Here's an interesting article published in this months "New Yorker" magazine online....



  1. Thanks for the link. Nice humorous tone! Do you keep a list of your "hosts"? How many are you up to now?? Sounds like a great way to wander through Europe. But I imagine it takes some time to wade through the people and places to select someone with whom you feel comfortable.

  2. Hi Kevin and Ruth,
    I have been using Couchsurfing for my travels since 2006 and it is a great network of like-mind people. I am pretty active in Prague, Czech Republic and both host and surf.
    Good luck meeting new people!


We love hearing from you! Please take the time to leave a comment...
