Spotted by Locals

A nice new initiative from two Dutch entrepreneurs who have just started, is Spotted by Locals. The idea behind this is that local people always know the best restaurants, places to hang out, museums etc in their city; much better than any city guide can offer.

Amsterdam is on the rails already, but Bart and Sanne are still looking for other local spotters in the main European cities. If you're interested in participating (they give you a piece of the advertising pie as well as eternal fame), you can contact them at Spotters [at] Spottedbylocals.com.

Here is the profile they're looking for:

As a Spotter you do not have to be a professional journalist. English will probably not be your mother tongue. Most important is that you:

-Live in a large city in Europe

-Consider yourself a local (you don’t have to be a native)

-Love your city, and you would like to share your enthusiasm by writing

-Have a bit of spare time (a couple of hours per month).

Bart & Sanne, best of luck! I hope I can find a decent restaurant next time I'm travelling in Europe ;-)
