Couch Surfing

So I'm not sure if I've mentioned it on here, but I've told a few people that I'll be Couchsurfing while I'm overseas. Basically I have zero money so couchsurfing seemed to be an excellent option. Plus, since I'm travelling alone, built-in company!!

I now have accommodation for Bath. :-) I'm so excited. Except now I've gone searching for hostels in Bath (probably should have done that first) and found that they're nowhere near as expensive as the ones in London, and now I really want to stay in this one cos it's so darned cute!

Anyway, I called my mum to share my exciting news and she kind of freaked out a little bit.

Mum: Why don't you go to Ireland? I have cousins in Ireland you can stay with!
Me: Erm... cos I have no time and no money to get there... And if I'm going to go to Ireland I want to go to the pretty places, not Northern Ireland.
Mum: Hmmm.... well, can you just stay in a hotel in Bath?
Me: No money. I'm spending it all on the Jane Austen Museum.
Mum: What?
Me: Never mind. Just no money.

I know! I totally want to try this. My friend Merryn did this in Munich because she couldn't get accommodation during Oktoberfest. Had a blast!

my friend does this. she was in between places at some point last year or the year before so she started sleeping on people's couches. i personally found it a little weird. but that's cause i'm weird about my space.
