Going local in Paris, part 2
comment 2 Written by on January 24, 2009 – 7:00 am


Published in today’s Guardian: an account of my meeting with the so-called godfather of travel-networking, Jim Haynes.

Every Sunday since the mid-70s, Jim has opened his Paris apartment for any traveller that cares to join him for dinner. An estimated 120,000 have done it so far.

I think I am slightly in love with Jim Haynes and here’s betting that, if you take up his invite, you will be too.

To get your name on the list, just go to his website, jim-haynes.com.

  2. Thanks Heather. I’ve had some tip-offs about some other hosts worldwide (including a couple of places I’ve visited here in Buenos Aires). I’ll post them up here very soon.
