Couch Surfing

This might be an interesting link for everybody who likes travelling and doesn't have the money to stay at Mövenpick or Hilton hotels. The system works like this:
You can use the network to meet people and then go and surf other members' couches! When you surf a couch, you are a guest at someone's house. They will provide you with some sort of accommodation, a penthouse apartment or maybe a back yard to pitch your tent in. Stays can be as short as a cup of coffee, a night or two, or even a few months or more.

hey tommy,
how nice to hear from you and that lovely internet brings people together that have not heard from each other for years and that over such a distance.
Very nice homepage that you have and even nice pictures of your trips! I should also start to put my Tanzania pics online - I'm just too lazy :-)
keep in touch,
Flo
