In October 2005 we set off on our "great adventure"
across America to spend Christmas with Michael's brother, Patrick,
in Oklahoma. While we spent time with friends and relatives we
also stayed or met some wonderful people who offered us amazing
hospitality. We met these true travellers through GlobalFreeloaders.com
or through HospitalityClub.org.
What an amazing experience!
It is so much better to meet "locals"
who can share their culture with you and who can offer advice
on what to see and do in "their neck of the woods".
We owe all our hosts so much that we can never repay
Both these organisations offer travellers a fantastic
way to meet people who enjoy travel and who are great ambassadors
for their own countries and towns.
Our memories of the US? Apart from the people? Rocking chairs, Christmas lights, Bass Pro stores and wonderful bargain hunting in antique stores/junk shops!
