Log in" at the the orange field on the top-right of the page. This orange field is also available on all other pages besides the homepage. Alternatively you can click on the icon with the text "invite people via a VisitMe". If you are not logged in and you click this, at the top of the page a login field will appear. By entering your username and password you will be able to login.

Step 2: Fill in the form


Add VisitMeAfter you have logged in you have to click (again) on the icon with the text "invite people via a VisitMe". You will see a form that you will have to fill in. A VisitMe is a travel opportunity you are offering to other people, so people will come and visit you. If you have made an interesting trip in the past, and you want to share this with others, you should create a Visit instead of a VisitMe. Please keep in mind that you will allways be able to change everything you fill in, also after you have created this VisitMe. So it is no problem if you have not filled in all fields exactly as you wish. Some remarks about what to fill in here:
Title: Choose a name foe your VisitMe. Make this attractive and clear since it will be the most important item on which people choose to take a look at your VisitMe
Host: Here your name should be displayed
Country: Standard your home country is filled in. If for some reason your VisitMe is placed somewhere else, you must choose the country here.
First/middle/last name: Fill in your name
Description: Here you should give a short description of your VisitMe. Examples of possible VisitMes: a hike, safari, a fishing tour, a horse trip, a local food or dance course, a volunteering assignment, a guided tour to an interesting place, accomodation at local house, and anything else you can think of!
How does your trip to me help: Here you should describe how it will help you or your community if people will come and visit you. Examples of how it will help you if people will visit you: make it possible for you or for the local people to earn some extra income, or create some extra employment opportunities, volunteering at your project will help local youth, animals, elderly etc, a visit to you or volunteering at your project will make it possible for the local community to have sustainable development, and anything else you can think of!
How to get there: Describe shortly how people should get to you when they want to visit you. Examples of how you can indicate the route to you: you can indicate which bus or train to take from a nearby city or airport, you might indicate that it is possible for you to come and get the tourists from some place, please indicate when it is depending on weather conditions or something else to come to you
Availability/when best to come: Here you can indicate when is the best time to visit you, and when it is possible. Examples of how you can indicate when best to come: you can indicate the best season or month when to visit you, you might indicate that visiting you is not possible on some days, during weekends, in some weeks etc, please indicate whether it is necessary to make a reservation, or whether it is dependent on how busy it is whether they can come to you
Costs involved: You should indicate here if there are costs if they come and visit you (and how much). Examples of how you can indicate the costs: you can indicate what people visiting you will have to pay for the visit, or that it is a free visit, in case of a volunteering assignment, you can indicate whether the volunteer will receive some compensation
