The cost of accommodations are so expensive in Geneva, Switzerland, so I went out on a limb and put a public trip out on Couchsurfing about a month before I was flying over there. Though I have Couchsurfed before, only in the US, it was goint to be my first time Couchsurfing in Europe and I was a little nervous, as doing anything for the first time. After a couple weeks of a public listing, I got a host. The host had over 100 positive reviews and is a fellow world traveler. He seemed cool online, and was very thorough on directions to his place and information about Geneva. My flight times were good (not too early or late), not staying very long, easy transportation from the airport, so it was a perfect opportunity for me to test it this way of travel.
