Your new fave travel buddy might just be a click away

Planning a little R&R has never been this easy

We’re all too familiar with the struggle of planning a summer getaway. Taking care of logistics is a nightmare, but being deprived of some serious R&R is even worse. Lucky for us, mobile app Tripkada makes things easier and more fun. Think carpooling, but for an out-of- town adventure like a Mt. Pinatubo hike or a three-day surfing trip in Baler. What makes Tripkada different from a regular tour is that it does more than just arranging transportation and computing the expenses. It connects you to Tripkada’s curated community of travelers and locals who are just as passionate as you are.

In true Tripkada fashion, the experience extends beyond the app as they organize events too. On March 11, the Tripkada Travel Day 2017 will be held at Commune Cafe+Bar. If you’re looking for ways to document your trips better, writer Paul Catiang is teaching a thing or two about travel journaling. Take it up a notch and learn calligraphy from artist Lee Caces.

But if you’re simply there to learn something new, then Cathy Cañete’s dreamcatcher-making workshop might just be what you’re looking for. Get to hang out and exchange stories with your fave travel ‘grammers — the boys of Sino Pinas like Raniel Hernandez and Alexis Lim, and Young STAR Fresh Produce gals Rachel Hallili and Ayen Dela Torre of WTN: Where to Next?

People always say that traveling is more than the places you get to see. For the guys behind Tripkada, it’s all about making new connections — to your surroundings and, most especially, to people that you meet. Who knows? Your new fave travel buddy might just be a click away.

To reserve a slot for Tripkada Travel Day 2017, visit or download the app on Google Play Store.
