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.
