Deaf Hostelling

Deaf Hostelling pictureIf you are keen on meeting up with deaf people overseas, you might want to give DeafHostelling a try.

I haven’t used it yet, but it sounds fantastic.

You can sign up, meet for coffee, and even crash out on a spare bed or couch of another DeafHostelling member overseas. Alternatively, if you’re staying home, you can meet people from all over the world in the comfort of your favorite local cafe!

It really isn’t that different.
