Anyone who’s followed our bike travels will know that we stayed with some wonderful people along the way – mostly thanks to WarmShowers, a hospitality club for cyclists.
People all over the world offer passing cyclists the chance to meet for a cup of coffee or stay the night. Often, the stay turns into a long-term friendship.
Mostly we arranged these visits by stopping in an internet cafe to look up a host we thought we’d reach in a few days time. This, of course, depending on being able to find a place to get online, which wasn’t always easy.
WarmShowers is moving with the times though and now there’s a new iPhone App that will let you see hosts in your vicinity on a map, mark them as favourites (so you can find them easily later) and get in contact with them.
The app is free. Click here to read more and download it. You can also read more about our experiences with hospitality clubs like Warmshowers and Couchsurfing.
