Useful links

For meeting locals/travelers:

http://www.couchsurfing.org – the hospitality website (you find people to stay with or meet) with most users, although I prefer:

http://www.bewelcome.org – because it is open source

http://www.warmshowers.org – very good hospitality website for travelers

http://www.cyclocosmos.com/pages/Casas_de_Ciclistas-3522947.html

Other online community websites according to your interests.

Searching for flights/travel deals/transportation:

http://matrix.itasoftware.com/ – my favorite website for searching for flights. Google bought it and this is what google flight is based on but the original has more functionality. However it is not enough as it doesn’t show all options. Other flight search websites I like: http://www.dohop.com, http://www.momondo.com, http://www.skyscanner.com and the rest of the bunch.
