Over the past four years that we have been traveling, we have watched the way that searching for and booking travel has changed. Even several years ago, when I was just leaving the UK to start my own travels, some friends of mine, millennial friends at that, we’re still walking into major travel agencies looking for deals on around the world tickets and organized backpacking excursions – something that now seems completely ridiculous!
Most recently, social media has become one of the biggest influencers of our travel decisions. We open our phones on a daily basis to viral videos and powerful images that stir our emotions and imaginations. What social media is sorely lacking, however, is the ability to take us directly from the inspiration to realization – actually jumping in and booking in the full excitement of the moment. Social media simply lacks the functionality to do that right now.
This is where Trepic comes in – a highly visual, image-driven travel booking app, which has combined the most exciting and inspiring visual elements of social media, with the ability to save your favorites, build a travel wish list and most importantly, actually book it right there and then!
Not only that, but the Trepic app actually allows you to click on any image that grabs your attention and inspires you to travel, then through some behind the scenes tech wizardry you will be matched with destinations and experiences that suit your travel preferences!
Win a GoPro Hero 5 Black.
We’re going to show you how this all works, but make sure you read through to the end to find out how to win a GoPro Hero 5 Black.
Having traveled for over four years and planned the majority of all our adventures ourselves -from the spark of an idea, to hunting through review sites and blogs, to finally comparing and weighing up all of our options in search of the best prices. We starting thinking about all of that hard planning and how much we would have loved to have had something like Trepic to make the whole process simpler, natural and intuitive.
Here are our top 5 trips that would have been even more awesome with Trepic:
1. Road Trip in Australia
When we finally traveled to Australia, one of the best destinations in the world for road tripping, we took a ten-day wild camping adventure from Adelaide to Perth across the Nullarbor Plain.
We hiked mountains, swam in the turquoise blue ocean, climbed impossibly huge trees and camped out under the stars every night. It was an incredible adventure!
2. African Safari Adventure
Africa is one of the world’s last true wildernesses and the ultimate adventure. While I was lucky enough to grow up there, Kach had never been. So while I stayed in Florida to fix up the sailboat we had just bought, she set off on a two-month journey that took her all over East Africa.
She hiked into the mountains in search of gorillas in Ethiopia, went on a luxury safari in the Masai Mara, jumped off a gorge above the Zambezi River and even went cage diving with crocodiles!
3. European Train Trip
When we returned to the UK to get married in 2016, we knew that we wanted our honeymoon to be something really special, completely different to our old ‘roughing it’ style and to have just the right amount of romance about it. The idea of train travel from one historic European city to another was exactly that.
In every city, we stayed in luxury and boutique hotels, always in search of the best rooftop sunset view. Paris, Berlin, Copenhagen, Prague, Budapest, Warsaw…and more, each with its own special something, a unique atmosphere and ambiance, yet only a short train ride between them. That’s the real beauty of Europe!
4. Food Tripping in Asia
Let’s be honest, no matter how many photos of gorgeous sunsets we post on our social media profiles, food is actually the driver of at least half of our travel decisions! Perhaps I’m just talking about myself here, but I’m pretty sure that most travelers would put experiencing new cuisines way up there in their list of top travel experiences.
Having eaten the food of every continent (except Antarctica, there was no food there!) we both still rank Asia as the number one food travel destination in the world. If you really want to know our favorite – Vietnamese!
5. History and Culture of Central and South America
South and Central America are the regions with the most intriguing and mysterious history on the planet. Every country is littered with the remains of ancient lost civilizations which constructed huge cities, temples, and agriculture that would seem impossible with the modern technologies we have today. Our first South American destination was Peru, where we lived in a pre-Incan town in the Andean mountains and hiked on foot for 30 kilometers in a single day to reach Machu Picchu, the Incan city in the sky!
Over the next two years, we explored the whole of South and Central America and Mexico, from the Yucatan, all the way down to the southernmost points of Chilean and Argentinian Patagonia.
