One of my fondest memories from studying abroad was being able to enjoy intimate, home-cooked meals with my host family each night. Gathered around the table, always candlelit in accordance with the Danish concept of hygge or coziness, we not only shared wonderful food, but also got the opportunity to exchange stories and learn more about each other’s cultures. I would love to have the chance to be able to do that again, but for those of us who are by now hardworking professionals or getting close to that state, an extended trip overseas might not be possible at the moment. How then, might we able to continue facilitating cultural exchange?
Well the truth is, you can do it from your own home! Allow me to introduce to Vizeat, an online service that allows travelers from around the world to enjoy an authentic meal at the home of a gracious host. Becoming a host is easy. All you have to do is register online, pick your menu and price, set a date, have guests sign up, et voila, you’re well on your way to hosting your first meal! Vizeat already has numerous hosts across Europe, Asia, Africa, and the North America, but that is a hardly an all-encompassing list. How cool would it be if you were the first to bring Vizeat to your town? Signing up is completely free and you can even make a couple extra bucks in the process!
If hosting is not your thing, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy this service as a guest on your next vacation. Imagine devouring this roast chicken on your next trip to France in a posh-Parisian apartment, or partaking in a cute little tea party in Bangkok. There are certainly quite a few meals that I would like to attend, such as French Flavors, offered by hostess Caroline of Nice or From Rome with Love, hosted by sisters Benny and Bula in Rome.
Well, so are you interested in hosting and meal opportunities with Vizeat now? Check out their website for more! Perhaps even you and I might get to meet over a meal and share our stories one day. 🙂
