CookforCouch

CookforCouch brings an option for travellers seeking a place abroad to stay with local hosts. The deal is that the traveller buy the ingredients, prepare a traditional meal from their home country and share the recipe with the host as an expression of thanks for the hospitality. We are focused on the people who seek an authentic experience shared with others from around the world to share a meal and interesting conversation around a table: from poor students and adventure-seekers who want to immerse in local culture, to those who are maybe unable to travel and who are willing to open their homes and kitchens as hosts.

Poupi Le Nuage

Mix between a speechbubble and a cloud, Poupi Le Nuage is meant to create social cohesion. It incites people to go meet everyone. Poupi likes to travel all over the world and make lots of friend. You can express yourself through it, strike a pose and get an original picture. But it would have been difficult if there was only one Poupi. That’s why it got cloned. Now, everyone can adopt his Poupi to set off on an adventure to the four corners of the world... while travelling as well as during the daily life.
