Couchsurfer Guide to Couchsurfing Like A Tough Cat by Marko ‘X Ray Cat‘.
Hey, since you found this post you’re probably surfing the net right now searching for inside information to make your couchsurfing a ride of a lifetime.
You’re at the right place my friend.
Come hit the wave with X Ray Cat and you’ll go from newbie couchsurfer to seasoned veteran in no time :)
Who’s a wussy couchsurfer?
Here’s the thing.
Tough Cats become tough cats because of their actions.
Wussies stay wussies because of their actions.
Wussy usually thinks he or she (there are lot more men-wussies than women, interesting fact I think) is very smart and knows everything.
Wussies think they’re above others and especially their host.
Wussy couchsurfer motto is: “you can sleep anywhere for free with couchsurfing“.
Here’s another thing.
Sometimes people are not intentionally wussies, they just lack the right information and their little inner wussy stands in their way of becoming a tough cat :)
No worries, X Ray Cat had to delete his inner wussy too before he could live the life to his fullest potential and gain his superpowers.
But enough with the wussy talk, I’m sure you’ve met your fare share of them :)

Tough Cat Couchsurfer
Since you’re still with me here, I’m smiling right now because I knew you’re one helluva tough cat life surfer or couchsurfer yourself :)
Tough Cats surf couches and life itself with open mind, always polite and humble to kindness, and always ready to learn from everyone they come in touch.
Tough cats walk their talk and lead by example.
Tough cats don’t expect something for nothing and they always bring value to the table first.
You recognise a tough cat right away when you see one. You just feel it.
Thats exactly how i felt when my superpowers guided me to
Dale and Franca from Angloitalian.
These guys have been surfing with over 50 hosts in more than 10 countries since they started travelling around the world in 2012.
I’ll share the link to their tough cat blog and cool world surfing at the end of this post so you can x-ray through them yourself.
X Ray Cat’s done some ‘couchsleeping’ in his early days, but kinda new to couchsurfing too.
This was done in my city cat times when more often than I would like I found myself waking up in someones couch..many times even on the floor.
Many times having no idea who the host was..
Just to be clear: this was long before I deleted my inner wussy :)
I just thought you should know this. Have you done some couchsleeping?
I knew what I have to do.
I have to share their passion and wisdom and ‘tough cateness’ (is this a word?) with you.
Here’s another thing.
As I go surfing I let go and trust. I know that somehow some way I will be guided to the right peeps. My kinda peeps.
And since you’re reading this right now I’m sure you share the feeling and we are probably lot alike, you and me :)
Anyhow, here’s why.
Dale Davis about himself:
Dale’s a forever smiling Brit who chose to leave his retail hell behind him and make full-time travel a reality and not just a wanderlust-filled dream.
Having spent more than ten years away from the family home, Franca feels more at home on the road than in her home town.
Travel has been her biggest dream for as long as she can remember, so when the chance came to start her own around-the-would adventure, she jumped at it.
When you choose to leave your daily hell behind and take advantage of the opportunity when it presents itself, you can be sure you’ll pop up on X Ray Cat’s radar sooner or later.
Nothing would please my heart more than one day write about YOU my friend.
Your couchsurfing experiences, your dream travels, your adventures and your wisdom and helpful tips for someone just starting their freedom-surfer career!
Hey! If you’re already living la vida loca, shoot X Ray Cat a message and let’s connect.
What really touched me..
..was when I discovered their decision to go slow.
As I was reading their thoughts how instead of two days in one city and three days rush sightseeing in another they now take their time to immerse themselves in local culture, trying to live as they do, and enjoying every encounter have have along the way.
X Ray Cat’s furry hair got all standing when reading this. Why you ask?
Because that’s exactly how I’ve always felt.
I never want to be a tourist. I want to experience the real local life just like Dale and Franca :)
And with this I’m extremely happy to let you join these two Tough Cat travelers and couchsurfers to find out
See you on the beaches of the world.
