Please join us for the June meeting - our guest speaker will be Terry Gould who will present an Introduction to Couchsurfing:
For travelers on a budget, there's no cheaper way to find accommodation than through Couchsurfing. No, it's not hanging ten on a sofa. It's actually an easy, inexpensive way to meet new friends and stay with them in their homes throughout the US and the world. This evening, June 6th, we'll visit the Couchsurfing.org website and explain how to get started, how the system works, and get some tips on what to expect both as a host and guest. We'll cover safety issues and how to make your visit a great experience for everyone. We'll also show how to use Couchsurfing to meet locals, even if you don't plan on staying with them. As part of the presentation, Terry will show pictures from his summer 2012 trip around Northern England which included seven different cities (and wonderful hosts) over three full weeks.
Terry Gould has been hosting travelers for over 20 years through various organizations. Since retirement, he has been heading out on many of his own travel adventures!
Reminder - there will be no meeting in July.
