Our Story

The story of Hippiewalks started with my journey to Europe. When I was backpacking in Europe, the hospitality and the love I received from people of Europe led me to build this community to help travelers. To give back same love to all kind humans of this world, I intended to build a community of travelers and locals who would like to meet and show the town to travelers from the locals’ perspective. It’s said that a journey is measured in friends and not in miles.

It often happens that travelers do not get the real feel of a foreign town in a limited time frame. You do not get to make genuine friends/connections. You often miss out a lot in town when you visit. I faced this problem, too. I am working to solve this problem building a community called Hippiewalks.
