You might try the following list. I have no experience with it, so don't know
how well it works.
HOSPEX at PLEARN.BITNET
[Last Updated 12-October-1991]
I am formally announcing the existence of a new list/database
named HOSPEX at PLEARN which was created to provide those interested
in being a host to foreign visitors a way to satisfy their interests.
For those interested in finding a host when they are traveling
in difference countries, this new database will satisfy this interest.
I encourage everyone to subscribe to HOSPEX now.
To subscribe just send a mailpiece stating that you want to join
to HOSPEX at PLEARN. This will be automatically forwarded to one
of the owners. Of course issuing standard
'SUB HOSPEX your full name'
to LISTSERV at PLEARN will do as well. You'll be sent a "fill in"
form to be filled and returned. This subsribtion procedure
is manual, so it may take few days sometimes.
We are looking for lots of users outside the U.S. to subscribe
(and U.S. users too, but now there is many more U.S. users than
an other nation).
Eventually, those who subscribe will be asked to send us a form
which describes something about yourself, the type of accommodations
you have, languages you speak, restrictions you want, etc. When
a file exists with this information on you, those traveling can
look through all the files for the countries in which they will
be traveling to find a host that seems interesting them. So, this
information you must eventually send to one of HOSPEX owners is
