Book yourself an exotic holiday and it’s not uncommon you’ll be asked to bring back some local produce or souvenirs from your destination. Or perhaps you’re the one stuck at home always doing the asking.
Either way, the items at the heart of these transactions are difficult or expensive to come by under normal circumstances.
A new website, PleaseBringMe.com, has been launched to connect travelers and locals to open up this informal import/exporting beyond our friends and family. For example, visitors to York can use the service to bring with them the requested goods and earn some money or barter for useful benefits, such as accommodation, a city tour, or even dinner.
It’s a unique concept and one we think might catch on. Let us know if you make a successful trade!
