Our club meeting on the 1st of November was a great experience for everyone as co-founder and CEO of Tripping Jen O’Neal joined us to talk about the idea behind Tripping – a social enterprise which aims to connect people from all over the world.
Have you ever experienced a city through the local’s eyes? Well … then you know the difference! After having done much travelling herself and having hosted many travelers in her flat in London, Jen set up Tripping (a now San Francisco based social enterprise) to enable many others to discover the world “in a deeper and more meaningful way”. Get a map, close your eyes and point out a place. Type in the name on the Tripping website and you will get access to a variety of locals who are happy to be your host and give you the best tips and hints about their place (just like Rotaractors would). But …there is more to this! You as well can offer to host travelers who come to your city and exchange ideas, cultural differences and…why not some great memories of fun and joy.
