The event offered so many fun activities that a lull gap was nowhere to be found. Games and prizes from the likes of Uber and Havaianas were periodically given away. But what really made it fun was the workshops. There was no competition to impress others; no one expected anyone to be a dream catcher expert during Cathy Canete’s demo; novice squiggly lines were chuckled over at Lee Caces’ calligraphy workshop if only because everyone could relate to the struggle; during Paul Catyan’s travel writing workshop, everyone picked up a little bit of knowledge about writing, and life in general.
“Here today, you have people who have the same thirst as you. People who are creative, people who want to explore, people who want to see and experience new things. And that’s what Tripkada’s about,” says Travel Day host and Tripkada co-founder April Cuenca. That message became the heart of the event, echoed throughout the workshops and talks.
