„Every friend I have now was once a stranger to me“, a couchsurfing host from India says in the documentary movie „Couch Connections“ by Austrian filmmaker Christoph Pehofer. Today’s Sweet Travels will be about friends, friendship and traveling. About staying in touch with friends and family while traveling, and about visits from home. Sweet Travels presents alternative options for staying overnight, by using internet platforms such as couchsurfing.
Couchsurfing is about accepting and giving hospitality, about meeting individual people, about breaking up clichés and stereotypes. We’d like to share our experiences using Couchsurfing. We talked to frequent couchsurfers like Nata (Odessa, Ukraine) and Natalia (Tiraspol, Transnistria).
Sweet Travels enriched with music and stories from Ukraine, Transnistria, and Moldova:
