Since GMC is an international community, I found it relevant to share with you this great site I've used I few times,

http://www.couchsurfing.org/


CouchSurfing is a worldwide network for making connections between travelers and the local communities they visit.

Don't worry it's free,

Yeah, it's great, besides it lets you know directly locals from a place you visit, it can save you good money on hotels,

Does anyone have experience in this? I'll have finished my school in about two years and afterwards I want to travel through Europe (and maybe more distant countries) before I start at university. It's all about money, you probably all know this ;-), and couchsurfing seems to be the cheapest alternative, but also one of the most interesting ways to travel through unknown countries (and meet a lot of new friends smile.gif)!

For all who are interested, I own a Yahama Pacifica 112 and a Spider Line 6 15W Amp

I have a friend who had been traveling and using coachsurfing, she had good experience.
I must pay a visit to Keilnoth, and maybe be a host on my own on coachsurf...
