As a traveler you probably took a nap on the weirdest places. I remember when I went to Budapest, I took the train from The Netherlands to Budapest, didn’t sleep at all, arrived very early in the morning and I wasn’t allowed to check in earlier then 2PM. So, I was walking in the neighborhood from my hostel and saw a park with a few benches and I decided to take a nap on one of them. It wasn’t really comfortable, but I was so tired that I could sleep anywhere.
I guess the two guys from The Netherlands that designed Google Naps have experienced this as well. They made a parody from Google Maps. With the Google Naps you can find the best places to sleep. This could be on somebody’s couch, somewhere in a park, on a bench etcetera. When you found a good spot to sleep, you can add it to the Google Naps as well. You can find places to sleep all over the world via Google Naps: Portugal, China, Indonesia, South-Africa and America. Ofcourse the most places to sleep on Google Naps you’ll find in the big cities in The Netherlands.
I guess the two designers where a little bit afraid that Google wouldn’t appreciate Google Naps so they added a note on the Google Naps tool for the founders of Google.
“Hello, please don’t be mad this is just a joke, a parody. We don’t mean to damage your brand or anything, we just want to bring a smile on the faces of Google fans. So please don’t take this to court, we only have a few hundred Euros in the bank. And we also don’t want to go to jail because we’re too busy with other things at the moment. But whenever you are in the Netherlands you can have a nap on our couch if you want, just e-mail us: firstname.lastname@example.org. We can also make coffee and bake eggs if you like that (for a small price).”
