Hello Friend of Tripbod!         

We are very excited about what 2010 holds for travel and really can’t wait to connect more curious travellers with passionate local people.

This year you can look forward to many new destinations, additions to the service and ongoing stories from our locals and travellers. So keep an eye on the website, @tripbod on Twitter, our ‘Local Travel’ group on Facebook and on TripLoop for upcoming news.

In this month’s newsletter: LOCAL NEWS, WINTER WEEKENDS and LOCAL TRAVEL 

First of all, we’d like to introduce some of the newest Tripbods to join our group of trusted local travel advisors:

Local News from our great local people 

Elena, our Tripbod in Rome told us about the opening of The House of Livia on the Palatine Hill and The Temple of Romulus for just a few days over the festive season. They had never been open to the public before. This was a really special treat for our traveller who was there at the time and got the inside scoop on this exclusive opening.

Our gastronomically-minded travellers were delighted to hear about a local
truffle market in beautiful Uzes, as highlighted by our Tripbod Marjorie in Avignon. Yum!

Alex, in Dubai, wrote to us about the opening of the word’s tallest building: “The observation deck on the 124th floor has handy handy electronic binoculars, where you can view the surrounding desert and city for miles and miles”. One for those with a head for heights perhaps…

Here in the UK, we have had a huge amount of snow over Christmas and New Year, offering all sorts of new fun things to do like sledging, skiing, snow biking, ice swimming. You can find it all in Cumbria and Sally has been demonstrating how it is done. 

Liz Sutcliffe, formerly of Rough Guides has joined us as a roving reporter. She spend a month last year volunteering in the Sierra Nevada and visited our Tripbdod Violeta in Granada. She is now back in London to complete her TEFL course before she sets of on her adventure, exploring all things sustainable and ethical in the travel world. Watch this space….

Wonderful Winter Weekends from our Tripbods

Weekend breaks are as popular as ever and we bring you ideas from our Tripbods in UK, Ireland and Europe about how the locals spend their weekends.

Our friends at travelguru.tv have some great Winter holidays on offer. John Carter, Travel Guru, journalist and presenter, tells us about what makes Malta a great destination. 

The new year is all about new experiences and exploring interesting destinations, which is just what the weekends are for. Planning, dreaming and getting away for a Winter Weekend is enough to get anyone through the cold snap.

2010 – The year of Local Travel

2010 is the year of ‘Local Travel’. Tripbod will be working hard together with partners to create a united front in promoting Local Travel. We have seen growing interest in the idea of Local Travel, which encourages us to take into consideration the impact that our trips have on the local people, economy and environment. For example, Tripbod connects you with local people who you can trust to help you make sure that your travel is a good deal all round.
