Connected with


in London, UK

It was great to meet Gérard here in London at our weekly karaoke night. We belted out classic rock songs and bonded over our love of Cher. He joined us for dinner afterward, and he really pushed my French with music, film, and radio recommendations. He’s a fun person with stories to tell and has an adventurous mind. Hope to see you again in London one day (or anywhere else in the world!).

Stayed with


in Bangkok, Thailand

Generous, easygoing, and always ready to laugh, Dang showed me the sights and helped me search out the best street eats (insects included!) during my week in Bangkok. He also helped me with more practical matters, like planning the next leg of my Thailand trip. I enjoyed our evenings chatting and watching Thai soap operas... Looking forward to seeing him again in a couple weeks!
