then this page is definitely not for you. Don't read on! Please go away.
then maybe Pasporta Servo is something for you. Read on.
Pasporta Servo is a hospitality network, currently consisting of some 1450 hosts in more than 91 countries around the globe. To join the network as a guest, you only have to buy the address list, which is updated each year. Then you can use the service. Each host has specified some conditions, for example on the number of guests or days, or notification in advance. Hosts won't charge you anything, many will even offer you breakfast or a perfect dinner, but if you come for a week with four people, you'll understand that some may ask for a small contribution. The price of the list covers our administration costs. Since 2009, Pasporta Servo is also a webpage, take a look here. You can create your one profile, displaying your condition and picture of your house. You can also look for host via the finder or the zoomable map. You can ask for information in the forum, and tell about your trips in your blog.
Well, OK, there's one important condition. You'll have to learn Esperanto. The application form is in Esperanto, the address list is in Esperanto, and all hosts speak Esperanto. No, wait! It's not as bad as it seems. Esperanto is an easy language. Easy grammar, no exceptions, recognizable words, everything you always wanted in a language. You can learn it in six months. If you're a bright language student, one month may be enough for a basic conversation level.
