In 2009 I traveled to Australia and used Couchsurfing for the first time. I met the most amazing people, traveled the country by car, and camped in the wild for weeks.
It wouldn't have been possible without meeting the right people through Couchsurfing. Over the years, I found it hard to repeat the same experience. I felt the community had changed. And I was missing it every single day. To me, Couchsurfing was one of the best places on the Internet.
I am José León, a Spanish software developer with more than ten years of experience building websites. And If you support this cause, I will try to bring back the lost spirit that we loved about letting strangers sleep on your couch.
