So what is couch surfing and how does it work? Do you know, I’m not actually sure… but I’ve taken the first step of signing up to couch surfing.com and I’m heartened by their strapline “Stay with Locals and Meet Travellers”. This definitely sounds like it could be right up my street… and hopefully on a street where I suddenly find myself without any campsite or cheap b&b. Obviously – at this point in time – I do not have my own place to be able to reciprocate, however I hope the fact I’m doing this walk for charity… I will be able to find some couches to crash on along the way. I know I’m going to have to do some more research before I set off, but I’m quite excited about this big unknown and what potential adventures lie ahead.
