The CouchSurfing Idea

Posted on 18 June 2011 by Dreidel Regala

Have you ever heard about CouchSurfing? Well if not and you are a traveler then you are missing this one awesome idea.

Traveling of course is our way to satisfy our bored, tired and wandering souls. And that’s okay, in fact that’s exactly what you have in mind, right? But the thing is you are traveling to a new place as a stranger and you may just be leaving as still a stranger. Yeah you saw the amazing sites, swam and bunjee jump, ate their food, but when you go back home you realize you are still a stranger to that place with no meaningful connections at all.

So how is CouchSurfing going to change traveling? In simple words I’d say you’ll make real encounters and connections to the places you go to. You go deep, deeper into a local’s home – relate and stay with them! You meet with other travelers or locals to hangout, dine out/in and checkout real awesome places with new friends. CouchSurfing lets you connect to a new place then leave it as no stranger anymore because experiences and camaraderie are built. It’s a community where hospitality is the main thing and everyone is willing to help out and welcome, all for the price of ZERO! No kidding, this is a non-profit org and nobody will be asking for a fee – just be courteous, cooperative and honest.

Yes there are still good things in life that are still free.

Is it really safe? If you’re letting someone in on your house or meeting a stranger, is it safe? Of course, like everything in life, you still have to look after yourself and always be careful. Every user has a feedback list and you can always investigate around. I believe everyone is thinking about their safety so for sure they will also extend that ideal safe environment for other people.

Budget Airlines Anyone?

Posted on 16 June 2011 by Dreidel Regala

If you are a budget traveler and your next escapade depends a lot on the airfare, my best bet is that you travel most of your time with budget airlines out there. I don’t blame you.. regular airfares are a sore to look at and probably the reason we grew up to the idea of ‘traveling is expensive’. So if you’re looking for available budget airlines for your next destination,¬†http://www.budgetflightfinder.com¬†will be so much helpful. I was so happy when I read about this, after all not everyone talks about budget airlines.

Let me say that again…


Oh glorious…

Pack Light

Posted on 02 May 2011 by Dreidel Regala

Packing light is a talent. You have to know what you want and need to bring at such a small space. It’s a compromise for some things but personally I’d compromise those just to have the convenience of carrying light baggage or having cheaper fares. TIP: you’ll be carrying less on your flight out than in. Most travellers will be buying souvenirs and goodies on their way home which means additional weight to carry on. So it’s efficient to be packing light. For longer travels consider laundry services in your hotels or wearing your newly bought shirt for yourself. Just a note on laundry services, avoid those clothing that bleeds color to whites, etc. or else you’ll be left with aweful tints on your shirt on your way up the Petronas tower.
