Forumfall,

I am looking for a particular website on which people from different countries offer to be amateur tour guides for each other. For example, a bunch of people sign up for the website. One is from the UK, another from the US. They both correspond and one will go visit the other one, stay at his/her place, and tour around.

in b4 myspace, facebook, etc. it's a website specifically geared toward this. I tried Googling, but I got a bunch of travel agencies and shit like that.

Thanks.

Nice idea. I don't know if such a website exists. But it's interesting none the less

I can imagine that being a successful business but I doubt it exists yet.

Some guy in my ToEFL certification classes brought it up. He didn't remember the name, but he sounded quite convinced that it exists.

I don't remember him saying this was the name of it, but it seems pretty damn close.
