Forgive me if this has been suggested / discussed in the past. I have no time for extensive searches now, but I didn't want the idea to pass by without taking actions.
I must confess I hadn't looked at the Warmshowers app in quite some time.
Last year I did only one cycling trip (~600 Km on the Portuguese Way of the Camino de Santigo from Lisbon) and didn't even remember to consult the app, which is a shame (stayed in Pilgrim hostels)..
Yet, long intro short, a message from WS prompted me to update my details and, out of curiosity, look at who's around. Quite a few of us, actually.
I only hosted (and was hosted) once through this service and that is a shame as I would have loved to do it more often.
Has there been any thoughts given to a possible "stay with a Warmshowers' neighbour for a day" type of thing?
I know WS is typically used by people touring long distances, but not many of us with Jobs + Families, etc, can afford to do that many times in the year.
Would be great to connect with like-minded people, go out for a meal and meet / make new friends, even if they are not hundreds or thousands of miles away.
What you all think?
