Since I left my corporate job, moved abroad and started traveling three years ago, I’ve seen the travel scene change rapidly and drastically.
Not only are there more travelers than ever, but travelers’ desires, demands and attitudes are changing (for the better!).
[pull_quote_center]No longer are we only looking for the most bang for our buck (of course affordability is still important), but we’re also becoming more mindful of our impact on the eco-system and the local economy.[/pull_quote_center]
We’re also seeing a massive uptick in self-planned trips, with the absurd number of travel blogs and online travel guides available. (Also plenty of “I’ll-wing-it-when-I-get-there” trips 😉 which can turn out to be either incredible or insanely frustrating)
But with this information overload, also comes massive overwhelm, uncertainty, and unfortunately unreliable resources, which can all have a seriously negative impact on your final trip.
The exciting news is that the startup Tripeasel is changing all of that.
In a nutshell, Tripeasel hooks you up with one of their expert travel bloggers depending on your desired location & personal preferences, the travel blogger creates a personalized itinerary just for you then a local travel agent hooks you up with the best deals with a focus on sustainable travel and supporting local small businesses.
