We’ve all done it. Last night was just a bit too good (as per usual) and your head is sinking ever closer to your desk – you need a nap, but where’s the nearest bed, bench or comfy patch of grass? Enter Google Naps, a parody of the venerable Google Maps, that lets users share the best places in towns and cities around the globe to grab a quick bit of shuteye. Think of it as Nappster.


The site, built on top of Google maps, started as a joke by a group of Dutch users, but data points already cover London and many other cities across the world including the US, China, Indonesia and Brazil. Curiously, here in Seattle, one main location missing is the downtown Seattle Library, where – if you can avoid the telling sharp nudge from the spoilsport security guards – many tend to nod off.

    • I know they are, Beth - but they kindly shy away from doing so.
