COUCHSURFING: Two individuals making an agreement to willingly hang out and sleep in the same living space as a stranger who could potentially kill them.
It’s not as scary as it sounds, but it’s just as weird.
I took up Couchsurfing during a trip to Iceland out of pure necessity. Usually, my “go with the flow” travel vibe works for me, but not during Iceland Airwaves, Reykjavik’s largest music festival. There was not a single room to be found in the entire city (I say this like it’s large) for under 300 bucks a night. I am by no means a big baller when it comes to travel; the plane ticket is the most I spend and everything else is on a tight budget. I’m all about the experiences, and, in Reykjavik, I got myself an experience for the low, low price of free.
