Once upon a time there was a blue/green planet in a solar system you may know. Well in this time the land on this blue/green plant was one. Then some fantastic science stuff occurred and the land started to split and float away from one another. This distance left the people on the islands with an inert curiosity about surroundings that were not their own.
Well some time past a great machines were invented and these curious folks could travel between lands and so holidays and travelling was born. This proved to be a vast industry, people made bags so people could carry their belongings around, and they charted maps and wrote books so that they knew where to go and what to see.
This brings us right up to date when two enterprising people called Sanne and Bart decided that travellers might like to explore cities as if they lived there and so a very cool website was born called Spotted by Locals. I am now one of the proud authors/spotters for a new city addition Manchester! I love this city and now I get to share all of my very favourite places to eat, shop and hang out with lots of other lovely people.
