Welcome back my wonderful travelers,

After taking the summer off I hope you all did more traveling that myself, considering the most exciting vacation I took was a trip to Cape May New Jersey. Although it was low-key, it was relaxing and wonderful. (You can expect a post about it very soon)

The past three months I have been bookmarking sites upon sites to share with you. My newest favorite (sorry Rome2rio) is called Tripping.

The idea behind the website is that when we travel, we don’t always want to spend our days being a tourist. Tripping is a social media site that allows travelers to connect with locals wherever they go. This way you can have people “host” you (give you a place to stay or just simply show you around their city). It allows people to discover local restaurants, dive bars, and other places you may not find when following a guide book.

On the flip side, you can sign yourself up to be a host and show people around when they are in your neck of the woods.

We all know that meeting people is the best part of traveling, and what you often remember most, Tripping just makes it that much easier.

The website has many other features including opportunities for
-exchanging language lessons
-Meeting up for coffee, drinks or dinner
-taking a walking tour around a new neighborhood
-showing off your favorite local spots
-having a pot-luck dinner, where everyone shares a dish from their home country

Take a look around the site, and use it for your next trip. I promise you will love it. 

A bientot my wonderful friends.
