Travel & Tourism (148)
Travel advice from the horse's mouth
Tripbod is a new travel website which connects travellers with local experts in order to get recommendations on any particular destination. Tripbods are people who are passionate about where they live and are eager to correspond with people who are interested in visiting. The website thus aims to add another dimension to holidays by throwing light upon different sides of a destination away from typical tourist attractions.
