Catch the CouchSurfing wave
On the first leg of our journey, Jen and I will do a stopover in L.A.
What started as a way to break up all the flights and airport time, later became just an excuse to see a new city and try something new: CouchSurfing.
We've already found a super cool guy to stay with: Ryan. We're excited to visit Hollywood, Venice and Koreatown (not far from where Ryan lives).
But the best thing about CouchSurfing is the opportunity to stay with a local, learn from the local, bond with the local and (hopefully) cut past all the tourist crap. The principle is all about give and take, to host and be hosted.
If it goes well in L.A., we'll have more CouchSurfing experiences in Australia.
I'll keep you posted...
