With song recommendations from Couchsurfers we compiled a playlist of awesome tracks to listen to while "Walking through the City"!

Take a listen while you explore your home or wander in a new place you're visiting.

Are you a band who has gone Couchsurfing while on tour or have you hosted a traveling artist or musician?

We would love to hear all about it!  Let us know here

My boyfriend and I travelled from Scotland to Germany and back in a van with all my bands instruments. We couchsurfed all the way there and back and left a cd with everyone ! Wonderful experience! Unfortunately, the rest of the band (of 25 members) flew and met us there for the festival we were playing at. I don't think there are many hosts houses big enough to host us all!!!

Why do you have a couch surfing profile?

"I have a couchsurfing profile because I want to have faith in people. There is so much good in this world and in its citizens and often times I feel like people have a tendency to get scared and forget that."

Can you imagine travelling the world without hearing anything?

Couchsurfer Jenny Lu can. Jenny is deaf and uses Couchsurfing as an opportunity to learn different sign languages. She has just set out on a 5 month trip through Africa and Europe.
