Living and Loving in London with Qype!

Hey let me tell you a story about some Londoners:

Alice well she just stepped off the plane. It’s her first time in London and other than down the rabbit hole she hasn’t a clue where else to go!

And Hafiz he’s been in London studying for months now but he hasn’t made it past the University perimeters!

While Abayomi has been living in London for years but still finds it hard to keep up with all the new restaurants, clubs, pubs that seem to be opening and closing all the time. Which ones to go to? Which ones are any good? It’s always a fight to keep up. And how does she let everybody know not to ever, ever have sushi at that place she went to last Friday? And to always buy the cheesecake and coffee from the new little pastry shop on her street corner ? :)

While Paul he’s lived in London all his life but still sometimes feel the need to reach out and connect with all other social drinking loving folk like himself! Is there really a ‘Cheers’ out there somewhere? No, not the ones named after ‘Cheers’ a real ‘Cheers’…where you can find your own Norm, Sam and Cliff…you think?

All these poor lonely Londoners were lost roaming souls until one day a lovely muser like me stopped each one of them on the streets and said:


They all looked at me like I was a mad woman! But they agreed to pet the manicou on my shoulder while I took their mobiles and pointed them to:

And after that my friends four new Qypers were born…and they told their friends and friends of their friends until a legend was born…all of London, UK, Europe and eventually the world was Qypeing…they were finding cool places, people and things to do and it was as fast as lightning…ooh baby it was so exciting! :)

And here is why…

Qype is this cool site that allows you to check out a broad range of places you would normally frequent arranged in broader categories like:
Eating & Drinking
Arts & Entertainment
Health & Beauty

There are many other categories as well and the site's biggest traffic and main hub seems to be London but you can set the site to browse other areas in the UK, Europe and throughout the world. The site is in English but can also be set to be read in German, French, Spanish, Brazilian and Polish languages.

Anyone can become a Qyper and Qypers aren’t just out there looking for information they are also writing reviews, telling friends what they like about these London restaurants in the category restaurants london or where the best place to have a pint of Guinness is in London by browsing in the category pubs london

And remember Qypeing is not just about Food and Drink…for the theatre lovers like this muser there is the Arts and Entertainment category where if you click on it and then go to Theatres you will find a listing of 426 Theatres in London with Qypers writing reviews and posting pictures and details about the theatres.

For those of you who engage in Universal Collective Prayer on my sister blog well there is a place for that too…under the same Arts and Entertainment tab you have to click on Religious and Spiritual and voila you get 72 hits!

So for sure it is a wide and varied world of Qype!:) But dem Brits sure love their social drinking so raise your glass and hop over to the hottest forum on the site "We like social drinking"…well if you like! :)

All in all welcome to the world of Qype!…a wide and varied world with lots to read, learn and interact with, so that you can get about London, UK, Europe and even the whole world better with the wisdom of many as the wind in your wings!:) No more, bad sushi and always, the best cup of coffee! And for the vegetarian like me there is lots of that too just click on one of the 116 Vegetarian restaurants listed here and no meat eater ever touch my muse!:)

And hey why not join Qype now it's free and them Qypers are giving away some shiny new Iphones I hear if you write a review on there! :) They told only my muse but I'm telling you! :) Maybe I'll write one too! :)
