Every month one of our Tripbods gets the chance to write a guest article in the Wanderlust travel magazine. For the May 2013 edition we’ve asked Tripbod Nick to write about his three favorite ouzeris in Thessaloniki.
Greece’s second city, Thessaloniki is not only a great alternative to Athens, a youthful, buzzy place with a great location by the sea. It’s also regarded as having some of the best ouzeris (ouzeria) in Greece – convivial places where (you guessed it) the tipple of choice is ouzo and food is served in small portions known as mezedes (similar to a Spanish a tapas bar). Really there’s no better place to sample good, authentic Greek food, and if you know where to go you can eat your fill for no more than €15–20 a head, including booze.Read more
If you’re going on a city trip to Istanbul and you’re looking for a day out of the city, look no further! Hiking with Huseyin near Izmit takes you out of the hustle and bustle from the Turkish capital and into the relaxing country side.
Our community manager Tim with Tripbod Huseyin
Izmit, Kocaeli is an hour away from Istanbul by bus and will be even more accessible once the high speed train line between the two cities is finished. But until then, you can still travel in luxury thanks to buses by companies like Efetur that are very spacious and comfortable. You even get free drinks on board!Read more
Almost every day, we see new Tripbods setting up shops that just make us jump up in our chair with excitement to start making travel plans. Vesna from Slovenia is one of those Tripbods.
“Coming from a small village called Plave in Lower Soča valley of Slovenia. I grew up here in a family house surrounded by forest. My parents are still living here. We have a priceless red car from 1989 and a lovely garden.”Read more
As head of the Tripbod community I feel I should meet every single Tripbod in our network in person. It’s not just because it’s great trying out their recommendations, but also because talking one-to-one about how we’re changing travel gives invaluable insights every time.
So far I’ve been meeting Tripbods all over India, Sri Lanka, Germany and of course London. Plus last week I was in Paris.
The attractively designed Mama Shelter Hotel was the perfect place to catch up with Gustavo and (uncle) Charlie. Neither of them was born in Paris, but they have learned to love the city like no other. Charlie was born and raised in NYC and moved to Paris 10 years ago. When not hosting people on a Tripbod experience, he is a real estate agent where he has helped many expatriates relocate.Read more
Every month one of our Tripbods gets the chance to write a guest article in the Wanderlust travel magazine. For the Apil 2013 edition we’ve asked Tripbod Thierry to write about his three favorite coffee places in Sarajevo.
In Sarajevo, coffee drinking is a way of life. The Old Town is full of cafes with their terraces - these are three of my favourites:Read more
This morning we were struck by the juxtaposition of this sign outside the CitizenM hotel in London. It reads: “Another world is possible”.
Every month one of our Tripbods gets the chance to write a guest article in the Wanderlust travel magazine. For the March 2013 edition we’ve asked Tripbod Mark to write about his three favorite music places in Dublin.
I recently attended a 9others meal in Dalston, London. The concept of 9 others is a great one: get 10 people around a table, lay on great food in an inspiring setting, then share the things keeping you up at night and try to provide solutions for one another. Needless to say, I loved every minute of it.
The dinner was held at this incredible place called Farm:shop, which is an urban farm doing impressive things in sustainable urban food production.
