Best Travel Websites

The Next Generation For Travel


Over the past couple years of meeting travellers and improving my Google skills, I have come up with some “GO TO” websites that are basically my life. Most of these are very common but I do have some unique ones.

 

Couchsurfing

A network of travellers that offer free accommodation- you sleep on their couch. It’s fantastic. Meeting the locals is a fantastic way to travel.  Some of my best memories are meeting these fascinating and generous people. 

Of course, I am always very of careful who I stay with. I do this by reading reviews help and doing my research on the area they live in. I normally always stick with females around my age. 

Interesting fact, if you don’t like the idea of the surfing couch thing, you can still join to meet the locals. Couchsurfing is a networks for travellers. You can join events that are held in the city, meet up with other travellers or ask locals for a tour, there so many options.
