TRIPup Rocks Budapest!
By: Zsuzsa Bakonyi
This was an incredible and fun event! Apart from inviting locals and expats, and travelers from all over the world, we have had some interesting guests, including travel show host Leon Logothetis and their very own Ultimate Triptrotter (sponsored by Air Berlin), Yolanda. Local friends showed up as well, like Attila Höfle, the editor of ruinpubs.com, Hársas Péter, the only expert on responsible travel in Hungary and Ryan James, Frommer’s editor and Bed&Breakfast owner in Budapest.
It was a nice evening with beers and fröccs (typical Hungarian drink: white wine mixed with soda) where we chatted about travel communitites, responsible travel, the nightlife of Budapest and where to continue the night 🙂
Next day, BudapestUnderguide took Yolanda on Responsible Shopping walking tour. She was so enthusiastic, that it went on till the afternoon, a lot longer then planned 🙂 Budapestunderguide will soon release a video shot by Kreativ.hu (they are making a documentary on alternative tours and included Yolanda’s experience in it).
Triptrotting is hosting TRIPups all over the world with one that happened in NYC, one in Jakarta and a few more coming up. To see if TRIPup is coming to your town and to experience the TRUE LOCAL LIFE, when traveling
