Fiew years ago I started hearing about this couchsurfing thing. Quite a lot of my friends had traveled using couchsurfing. At first I didn’t know what it was, but then someone explained this to me.
Using this website couchsurfing,(there are many websites) you make an account, log in and then start surfing. Basically people, from different countries, open their homes for travelers. If they have a empty room or a couch someone can sleep on, they put up, well, lets call it an notification (can’t think of a better word).
So, if I wanted to travel to Spain and don’t have much money, I can go to this website, see the available places and then send them a letter that I would like to us their couch. If everything works out, I have a nice place to stay. (my descrition isn’t the best)
I was surfing the web yesterday and found this new thing. House sitting. Some of you may even know it. It is for those people with pets, who are going on a holiday and they need someone to look after their pets.

It seems like an awesome way to travel, all you have to do is look after a cat or two and enjoy your stay. But to be honest I don’t know anyone who has actually used it.
So if you do or have used it yourself, let me know.
