Kate Thomas on Huffpo Live

Yesterday, I appeared on The Huffington Post’s live-streaming news network, Huffpost Live! On the show, I got to share with viewers a new trend in travel – an easy way of booking experiences that instantly transforms a tourist into a traveler. It is called kitchen hopping.

Here’s the full video…

    Really interesting I can see how this king of experience change your whole outlook as you went through the rest of your trip

      Yes. It really would!

    Wow! Pioneer Kate Thomas! You actually coined a term that will be used worldwide, pretty damn cool! This is kinda like a bed and breakfast without them having to change the sheets. I bet this works a lot better outside of the US…unfortunately. I just spent some time in Ireland and it’s ALL B&B’s – I bet this would go over great there, if it hasn’t already. Keep up the fantastic Local Knowledge!

      Thanks Johnnie for the encouragement!

    I’m all about a new economy too! Do you think this will really take off? Or do you think it’s a fad? I wonder how open people really are…

    • travelwithkate

      I do think this is really going to take off. I think if people are willing to do Airbnb and the like – even more people will really get into kitchen hopping. Is it a fad? I think it is a trend indicative of the rising person-to-person/sharing economy. I think this concept and many more like it are here to stay.
