Here at Travelversed, we all love to travel — and if you’re here reading this article, it means the itch is becoming unbearable. You need to travel now! I’m like that all the time, but unfortunately it’s not always possible to just leave everything behind and hit the road.
What to do then?
Gladly, traveling is as much about exploring new cultures as it is a state of mind. The fact that you don’t leave your town, doesn’t mean you can’t travel — you can!
And you will! Let me just give you a few ideas:
1. Host People Using Couchsurfing
If you don’t go to them, let them come to you. When you travel, you experience new foods, new scenery and new activities, but most of all, you meet new people. Well, you don’t have to leave your home to do just that!
Create a killer profile, set it so you have an available couch and make sure you vet the couchsurfers thoroughly before accepting them into your lair. In no time you’ll be making new friends and the best kind of them: traveler friends.
Usually the people who come to stay with you tend to be extra friendly, because they understand you’re putting yourself out there and trusting them with your house. So more often than not, you’ll receive exotic gifts or someone will try their best to cook a traditional dish just for you. Imagine eating a real burrito cooked by someone from Mexico!
