"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)

Couchsurfers Cyrille and Ricarda wish to thank their amazing hosts they met backpacking the Americas:
“We started travelling in April in Seattle and since then, we drove all across the USA and backpacked in South America as well. All in all, we crashed on about 50 couches and every single place was a unique experience! During our half year trip we caught up so many memories we probably will remember a lifetime! Thank you guys for sharing your lives with us!”
