Connections are when you make contact with other peoples in your travels or while hosting. It's when you experience other cultures, have life changing events and make life long friends. At ITHF, our members constantly make new connections while traveling and hosting with our 1,000+ membership and growing.
ITHF "connections" take many forms. Some involve simply an evening at a restaurant, some will provide admission to "the club", some will include everything - accommodation, food, sightseeing, entertainment, etc. Such is strictly the choice of the hosts, but without any obligation.
The ITHF "connection", therefore, is for the purpose of having a cultural sharing experience. Those simply wanting a place to stay, a meal to eat or who are more interested in their own itinerary than that offered by their hosts will soon discover this fellowship is NOT for them.
Visiting, hosting and communicating almost always involve careful preparation. Our suggestions to you based on our many years of experience are contained in the Members' Guide to ITHF given to each new member upon successful registration. Our officers and the full time Administrator are always on call to help. Getting started is easy. We've been at it now for more than fifteen years.
