Dear Trippin Community,
As we continue to try and navigate our new reality due to Covid-19, we felt it was appropriate to speak to you.
Our genuine concern at this moment is around the people that are seriously at risk. We hope that together we can find a way to protect and look after those that really need help.
Beyond that, as people that fundamentally believe that travel makes the world a better place, we are left with a heavy heart. As borders close and travel bans are implemented, our thoughts go out to the communities across the world that are propped up by tourism.
And on a personal level, we’re heartbroken that a number of our projects we’ve been cooking up behind closed doors are now cancelled and the future as a small business remains extremely uncertain.
"We have decided to focus on the other key part of our mission, which is to connect cultures worldwide and inspire you on all the beauty our incredible planet has to offer."
It leaves us reflecting on our mission as a travel platform; a strong part of which is to help you travel with more purpose. At this moment in time, we feel it would be irresponsible of us to push this message out. With this in mind we have decided to focus on the other key part of our mission, which is to connect cultures worldwide and inspire you on all the beauty our incredible planet has to offer.
"We’ll be bringing our world’s treasured culture to you every week... Expect the very best travel stories, films, podcasts and music to keep you trippin whilst in isolation."
Over the coming weeks, we aim to take your mind off things and do our best to bring far-away places to your home. We’ll be bringing our world’s treasured culture to you every week by focusing on one destination that you can immerse yourself in from the comfort of your living room. Expect the very best travel stories, films, podcasts and music to keep you trippin whilst in isolation.
A lot of you have come to us with questions about travelling during this time. As a result of this, we’ll be using our IG stories and Facebook group as messaging boards, where our community members can ask questions or post messages of unity to share all around the world. Stay locked for more news on this.
"Stay inside, practice good hygiene and wellness practices and keep those travel dreams alive by looking forward with hope"
For the time being, stay strong in will and in health. Stay inside, practice good hygiene and wellness practices. Keep those travel dreams alive by looking forward with hope: start looking into that trip you’ve always wanted to go on, get lost in a book or film that takes you far away. We hope you’ll find some solace in our website and channels, as a source of escapism.
In true sense of community, in these times of hardship and uncertainty, we need to come together and continue to support each other more than ever. We hope that with this pause the world can reset to create a better environment for all of us.
Stay safe and thank you for your continued support <3
Sam, Kesang and Yasmin
