"Back home, we offered our couch to complete strangers in need of a place to stay. On the road, our offers were returned tenfold. I think you get more out of Couchsurfing than you could ever put in, and that’s part of what makes it so incredible."~ Couchsurfers Oren and Cassie, http://bit.ly/1Ba6C0c

Sheila and the incredible Austin Couchsurfing Community welcome new locals into the scene by sharing a curated city information guide and by organizing events like the Austin Couch Crash. Their green alien mascot keeps Couchsurfing weird and helps the group find each other at meetups!

"If you’re ever stranded in a small town because your road trip van maybe died, do not fret. Because there’s a possibility you could couchsurf with the sweetest, coolest, punk rock vegan couple that ever lived. And they will let you sleep in their teepee and then give you a beautiful pair of handmade wings to fly around life with (in case your van is doomed)! Ps I have always ALWAYS wanted costume wings so this was probably one of the best days of my life.”~ @stephaniehurtado (http://bit.ly/1uIzEUV)

"Couchsurfing entered my life and brought a ton of amazing people and new good friends. I’ve been organizing the weekly vegan dinners for couchsurfers for a year now, and a couple of picnics off the beaten path I’m really grateful for all the cool people I’ve met this last year through CS."

After compiling our shared staff bucket list, three Couchsurfing team members decided to fulfill the top item on the list! They enjoyed a gorgeous morning in Napa, California, from the comfort of a hot air balloon. They would also love to say another huge thank you to their fantastic host Greg for putting them up on his couch!
