“Welcome to my Garden”
« on: June 17, 2022, 10:22:57 am »
Just came across a website for slow travelers called “Welcome to my Garden,” linked below. It looks pretty popular in Belgium and has a few host in the USA. Would be cool to see it grow here.

Similar to WarmShowers the website is for folks who have space in their yard to allow travelers to camp.

It sounds like a good idea. One thing, Western Europe socially politically and economically is quite different from the United States. I lived in Western Europe for 26 months. I also spent a considerable amount of Time bicycling and camping there. 1 time after a lengthy bicycling trip we returned to the United States and began cycling here. The difference in social attitudes and other matters was Stark and immediate. I would definitely allow a traveling long-distance bicyclist to stay here where I live for 2 or 3 days oh, enough time to actually relax. 1 overnighter simply really is not enough. If I were to stay a day or two with someone as a guest while cycling, I would give that person my name and where I live and phone number and email. I would most certainly return the favor. However oh, and the United States, I am not so sure that I would be open to anybody and everybody who comes along saying they are on a long-distance bicycling trip. In other words, you host me and I will definitely host you.
