TRIPup Rocks Jakarta

By Triptrotting Team


After a successful night in NYC on June 26, we had our second TRIPup event. This time we decided to go international and host it in Jakarta, Indonesia! TRIPup Jakarta was a HIT!

More than 200 people gathered in the lovely garden at the Eastern Promise —one of the oldest pubs in Kemang—for food and drinks, live music, the mixing stylings of “DJ Panda”!

Check out the pictures to see some of the new members of Triptrotting’s global family.

Special thank-you’s to owner Lens Ter Wee and awesome Triptrotters who helped set up and run the event, especially our awesome Triptrotter Denisha.

Something that started as a small idea to meet up with other travel enthusiasts in NYC now turned into a global meetup party for locals and travelers alike. Triptrotting is all about connecting people with similar interests to foster cultural exchange and it’s great to see so many people show up to connect with each other at our TRIPup events. The more events we hold and the bigger our community grows, the more places Triptrotters will have to call home, all around the world.

So get ready for our next TRIPup Budapest with special guests Yolanda—the Ultimate Triptrotter , and Leon—Travel Show Host of Amazing Adventures of a Nobody!

The theme of the party is responsible travel, and our local partner, budapestUNDERGUIDE will bring a few experts on responsible travel and tell you all about it!

If you live in Budapest or just passing by, come join us for more food, drinks and fun at Fogashaz Ruinpub on Friday, July 29. Entry is free, so bring your friends!
