Introducing: Triptrotting TV

By: Triptrotting Team

We’re excited to kickoff the second half of this summer with the launch of a new section on the Triptrotting website—Triptrotting TV (TTTV)! To get you inspired on your own adventures, we are honored to launch Triptrotting TV with two new shows.

And we’re launching TTTV’s first two shows, Ultimate Adventures with Yolanda Clatworthy and Mongol Rally: Team Nobody with Leon Logothetis!

Mongol Rally: Team Nobody
Leon will be taking us all along on his epic 10,000-mile road trip from London to Ulan Bator, Mongolia. His team, “Team Nobody,” will join 400 others saddling up for the journey in old-school ambulances, three-wheeled cars, and just about anything that could pass as a vehicle.

The Mongol Rally is put on by a group called The Adventurists, and is quite the fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants experience. It’s a celebration of…shenanigans? The Adventurists themselves describe the experience as being stuck in the middle of the desert “with a dirty sock and two dried apricots.” We’re thrilled to hop in the back seat—or stretcher, truck bed, trunk–for what is sure to be a crazy ride.

Ultimate Adventures with Yolanda Clatworthy
Meanwhile, Yolanda will be putting our network of travelers and hosts to the test as she makes her way around the world to link up with Triptrotters the whole way! She’ll be keeping us updated with videos and blog posts—she’s on her way to Los Angeles this week to visit Triptrotting headquarters so we can outfit her for the journey—we can’t wait to finally meet her in person!

The Ultimate Adventures is sponsored by Air Berlin and an incredible list of sponsors. Check them out here.

So stay tuned Triptrotters, because this summer’s great adventures are just beginning!
