I had an amazing trip to St. Johns and Ferryland on Sept 11th-13th 2009. I am a part of the social networking group called “couch surfing” and in certain communities or cities there are events planned through this network. My friend Jenna is an ambassador for the St. John’s area on couch surfing.com and she created a couch surfing meet-up event. Couch surfers and friends from the area met up for 1 day and overnight stay in Ferryland, Newfoundland. We rented a small summer cottage for the night and we spent our time hiking, sight seeing, kayaking, having a picnic at the lighthouse and of course an awesome beach bonfire at night. Couch surfing is a way to meet new people from around the world and it is also a great way for travelers to meet locals and possibly get a couch to stay on for free!
