Now I have to focus on travel-related materials, so today I’ll tell you about a website, which is a boon for nomads, calledCouchSurfing (couchsurfing.com).           

 CouchSurfing is also a type of networking site, but also across something different. It is mainly designed for travel enthusiasts, but used mainly by high-quality nomads. It just is not very popular in India, but in the West it has earned a significant name.           

 The website with the help of members of the interplay between host stroller (Hosts) are exchanged. If you create an account for this website, in any corner of the world you can find a host of other member. Suppose you go somewhere, you can find in that city any Couchsurfing member, can connect with the information, and if he likes it, he can allow you to stay with him. Thus a in new place, to stay with local people also feels warm and comfortable too, as well as the money can be saved by avoiding stay in expensive hotels! The website which was launched in 2004, today more than two million of the world’s cities over  ten million members are registered.

(7) In addition to finding hosts and guests in this website, you will also find a variety of Groups and Discussions which you can join. You can also create an event, or may be involved.           

 Overall it is a clean website, which is very easy to use. After all, no more than five-six thousand users in India, it is quite prevalent in the developed countries. Strangers to interact, to meet people of different cultures- all are very interesting, but in the minds of new users, doubt about couchsurfing is still maintained. So that’s why I advise you to properly check a partner before you hang out!.

Top 4 waterfalls of Jharkhand- Hundru, Dassam, Hirni and Jonha

When the word ‘Jharkhand’ comes in our mind, we think forest, greenery, hills, valley, rivers etc. Jharkhand is such a state in our country which is very rich in mines and minerals, flora and fauna, but unfortunately, due to whatever reason, tourism has not sprouted here like other Indian states. This is still a tourist deficient region but in no way it ever means that it has not the capability to attract the mass.
