Hospitality for the traveler has always been a major component of all cultures around the world. But we live in a time when things are changing fast.

In the big cities, hospitality as a concept was more and more forgotten. It's too dangerous, there are freaks out there, and why don't they just get a hotel room...

Things are changing fast... In the cities, hospitality is coming back under the impulse of hospex. But hospex and hospitality, though they share some components, are still different things.

There are some places in this world, in the heart of those big heartless cities, where the traveler will be welcomed by other travelers. Where they will sit at the table as a member of a family. Where they will be able to stay more than a couple of days. Where they will participate in the projects of the community. Where they will be allowed to start their own project. Where they will be a host themselves and welcome other travelers, before they set on their way again.

Those houses are havens for nomads that have been on the way for long. Changing location every few days.

They already exist. Everywhere around the world, there are people that decided to open their homes to the traveler on a permanent basis. And everyone of them had to reinvent the wheel. If only they knew one another...

We want to introduce them, we want to give a new playground to hospitality.
