Our new Milan Spotter, Francesca!

I think cooking is one of the best ways to take some time for yourself, and also an opportunity to test yourself. I’m even convinced that cooking traditions are very important for every culture…

We are excited to welcome our new Milan Spotter, architect Francesca! Check out her first articles here.

Free Guided Meditation by our Spotter Kristina!

Our Los Angeles Spotter Kristina is offering for free next week:
Guided Meditation for the Spotted By Locals community
Tuesday, April 14, 2020 at 19:00 GMT/NOON PST
Spaces available: 20
The meeting will be 40 minutes with time to connect with each other before and after the meditation.
My intention is to nurture community and connection, so I don’t want to just offer video meditations where I talk at a screen.
I will add additional meditation dates as needed.
To RSVP a spot, simply go to: KristinaNikolsWellness.com
Fill in the application for Meditation offering on the Home Page.
PLEASE BE SURE TO INDICATE “SBL” in the “How did you hear about this” section.
You will then receive a link to the Zoom meeting for the April 14th session.
This is a private session and not advertised, so it’s important to put “SBL” if they want to join the meeting with fellow Spotted By Locals. 🙂

Welcoming back our NYC Spotter, Nick!

I’m a copywriter for hotels and travel companies. As an Italian American, my favorite spots are ones with pizza, pasta, and gelato. I also like writing about cool museums, things to do on the waterfront, and Old New York spots that have stood the test of time.
We’re excited to be welcoming back our NYC Spotter, Nick! 


Virtual Spotters Chat 2 April 19:00 GMT

On 19 March we organized a group chat with the aim of just getting together in this time of COVID-19 crisis and exchanging thoughts. Even though we quite hastily arranged it last minute, more than 80 Spotters were there, from North America, the Middle East and Europe!

It was heartwarming to see how Spotters – who often haven’t even met in person but are connected through the Spotters community – comforted each other. And of course we made a lot of fun of each other and ourselves. It gave us strength to carry on, and a great new initiative was born right after the meeting (more news soon)…

Thursday 2 April 19:00 GMT we’re on again!

If you want to join, please do the following about an 1 hour before we start:
1) Join the chat via this link: https://chat.whatsapp.com/IFVLKgePXTKFckEiBdd6ff
2) Post a photo/video and a short text to introduce yourself. Also do this if you have already done so in the previous chat. If you don’t new participants can’t see your name.
3) Change your name & add your city. E.g. Mike (NYC)

Some tips:
> Use “WhatsApp web” – faster!
> Tag participants with the “@”

Please only post during the chat (apart from your intro post)

Oleksandr, our new Kyiv Spotter!

I arrived in Kyiv to study at our national polytechnic university and stayed here after my graduation. I now work in IT… I’m a fan of urbanism and the development of modern cities. It is always great to spot the best relevant practices all over the world, and especially to notice them when they appear in Kyiv…

We’re excited to welcome our new Kyiv Spotter, Oleksandr! Check out his local favorites above.

Our new Tbilisi Spotter, Keto!

I love nature and cozy places and always try to find new spots in my city where I can relax, get energised and spend my free time with my friends. I love nature, long walks, art, coffee, food, old buildings and vintage style…

Excited to welcome our new Tbilisi Spotter, Keto! Check out her first articles about her city’s favorite spots below.

Our new Malmö Spotter, Sharon!

I find Malmö to be the ideal size in terms of providing both “big city” amenities and a hometown feel. Malmö has a very international vibe, owing partly to its proximity and direct connection to Copenhagen. The growing food culture and start-up scene give it a very youthful energy that is so inviting.
We’re excited to welcome our new Malmo Spotter, Sharon! Check out her first articles for the best spots to look at the harbor traffic, a restaurant with indoor boules courts, the architectural wonders of the library & train station…
