Couch Surfing Around France
France is a vast, varied country with snow capped mountains and glorious beaches, it is also the second largest country in Europe and it takes some doing to see all of it. It’s not impossible however, thanks to a French railcard and couch surfing. This new phenomenon in travel allows you to post your profile on the website and be matched with families in the parts of France you wish to visit who will let you stay in their home free of charge.
First of all plan your itinerary, list all the sights of France that you want to take in during your trip and using a map plan the best route so you are not zigzagging or doubling back on yourself. Next, post your profile on the couch surfing website stating where you want to stay and when. There are host families all over France, and understandably the hosts in the chief cities such as Paris or Lille are in high demand.
Take this into consideration as you may find your dates have no hosts available, so flexibility is the key. The further you can book in advance the better, as the best hosts tend to be snapped up really quickly. By being sensible and planning carefully you can couch surf your way across France and have the trip of a lifetime.
