Night out with strangers

-Almu and Benno from the Hospitality Club.

As well as going out with friends, it's always a pleasure to host visitors to my city. That's where the Hospitality Club (See link on the right) comes in so handy.

I got to host Almu from Spain and her boyfriend Benno from Germany (both are studying at Southampton) as they started their tour of the UK.

For me, it was a pleasure to have them stay at my house and take them out into Coventry for a meal and show them a good time pubbing/clubbing. Even though we'd never met before, by the next day it was as though we'd known each other for ages.

It goes to show we can use the internet for good and being an ambassador for my city helps me feel proud of my city and gives me great joy in being able to give something back to others.

The bible has this very interesting verse:

Hebrews 13:2 (New International Version)
New International Version (NIV)
Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984 by International Bible Society

"Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it."


  1. It's one of my favourite Scriptures and I still think people have entertained strangers in the past without knowing it.........
