CallThere: Talk to Randomly Selected Users Around the World

When we were younger, we loved having pen pals and talking on the phone (as all teen girls do). We waited in anticipation for reply letters from our pen pals, learning more and more about strangers from across the globe. In the age of technology, the art of letter writing has deteriorated; even phone calls have been replaced by texting and emails. To regain the art of personal communicating, we introduce you to the new app, CallThere, a telephony app where you talk to randomly selected users around the world simply by dialing the country code of the country or city of interest.

CallThere

You can say CallThere is like chat roulette, but without the surprise of naked bodies. besides being fun and interesting, CallThere is useful for those who are learning a foreign language, traveling to a specific region, and or those who just want to learn about other places directly from the area’s local people!

Calls on CallThere are completely free,  up to 5 minutes each, and users are already using it to talk to randomly selected users in the U.S. CallThere calls are voice calls made over the internet, the app does NOT use or reveal your phone number and does NOT use your calling minutes (it’s more like a Skype or FaceTime audio call). There’s no registration or login required to use CallThere. Once in the app, all you have to do is dial the country’s international code. For example, if you ant to speak to someone in Sweden, just dial 0046 to connect, dial 0055 for a user in Brazil, 0081 for Japan, 0091 for India, and 0034 for Spain. If you live outside of the USA, dialing 001 will enable you to enjoy a real-time phone conversation with someone in the US. Do you prefer to talk to someone near you? (within 500 meters), just tap the “Call Here” button to connect to someone locally. The CallThere app is available now for both iOS and Android. Why not download the app and connect today. Are you op

Are you openminded enough to get to know and have a conversation with a stranger from another country? Why not download the app and connect today.

Hendrick’s Gin Cucumber Festival of Wonder

In case you didn’t know, Tuesday, June 14th was World Cucumber Day, a day to honor the refreshing and delightful fruit (yes, although it is used as a culinary vegetable, the cucumber, like a tomato, is a fruit)! To kick off the summer season, and celebrate its flagship holiday, Hendrick’s Gin celebrated with a two-day Carnivale event celebrating the cucumber, and the warm weather season called, the Hendrick’s Gin Cucumber Festival of Wonder!

The unusual yet epic Hendrick’s Gin Cucumber Festival of Wonder event included delicious Hendrick’s and cucumber tipples (cocktails), cucumber-centric bites from celebrity chef Harold Dieterle (which of course didn’t last very long), an exciting Penny farthing cycling concourse which entertained with multiple races, interactive carnivalesque games and attractions that awarded tickets to redeem prizes, the world’s tallest Gin bar, roaming cocktail contraptions, musical performances, and a magical Flying Cucumber Airship soaring above the event.

The modern crowd was enthralled by the old time lawn games, which included Shuffle Board, Bocce, Ladders, and Cornhole. All of which promised the coveted green Hendrick’s Gin Cucumber Festival of Wonder tickets (also known as Cucumber Day currency) which awarded such prices as playing cards, hip flask, hand fan, tea cup and saucer, leather wallet, umbrellas, luggage tags and much more.

We found we were very skillful at Shuffle Board, easily beating a team of two. We need more time to fine tune our Bocce ball skills but we really enjoyed the game, but when it comes to Cornhole, our time was best spent at one of the festival bars enjoying a cocktail or two.

Of course, the six delicious featured cocktails at the Hendrick’s Gin Cucumber Festival of Wonder, which included the Hendrick’s & Tonic, Cucumber Basil Smash, Snow Meiser’s Cooler, Unusual Negroni, Melondious Melonade, and Pell Mell Punch, were the highlight of the event, with the penny farthing races a close second.

However, we did earn enough Cucumber Day currency to obtain a few decks of Hendrick’s Gin playing cards and a chic, vintage-inspired teacup set. This is how we celebrated the season and World Cucumber Day. How did you enjoy World Cucumber Day? Did you attend the Hendrick’s Gin Cucumber Festival of Wonder?
