The world is getting smaller and smaller, and the competitive traveling industry makes it therefor more affordable to visit different places. All of us here have seen many amazing destinations in the world, both with the team and as individuals.
We thought it would therefor be a good idea to provide our followers with a weekly dosis of city trip inspiration. We are not going to write essays or guided tours for you, we are just providing you with a picture which in our eyes really sums up what this place is all about.
For us Stockholm is of course an obvious choice. Although I am pretty sure that this journalist got his martini in one of Stockholms expensive hotels I thought it was an interesting read that provides a good impression how visitors see Stockholm.
Feel free to provide us with tips which we can share with our followers again.
It is 6.00 AM on London’s Heathrow Airport, and unlike one might expect during the Olympics the terminal in which I am waiting for my connecting flight is empty. I just came in from New York and am waiting to be connected to Amsterdam. Just like most of our team I am going to spend some time with my friends and family there before returning to the office in Sweden. I however doubt my family will actually notice that I am back as we have had limited sleep in the past few days.
I just realized that while crossing the Atlantic, though being surrounded by hundreds of fellow travelers, this was the first time that I was actually ‘alone’ in the last four months. In New York the biggest part of our team had been living together in an apartment conveniently located in the Upper West Side, and apart from sleeping there we have spend most of our time at the office … and in bars probably. A situation like this demands a lot from a team and I guess this situation is the ultimate test for any group which is being relocated for a certain amount of time. I am pretty sure many of my friends would confirm that they would never been able to spend so much time with their direct colleagues as we did over the course of the past 3 months. We have surely passed this test with a straight A.
As mentioned earlier our last 48 hours in NYC have been intense, with a great presentation at the New York Tech Meetup and the Dreamit Ventures’ Demo Day, which marks the end of this summers’ accelerator program, we have left the city in style and are looking forward to all that is coming next. We have learned a great deal about ourselves, the market that we are trying to disrupt and the industry we are working in over the course of the last moths. Apart from that we have tried to do as much as possible with the feedback that we have received. These two factors combined have made the app as we know it today. As we as a team already know a bit more about the future of Tripl than you do I can tell you this…. it will exciting, very exciting.
PS: We are back to being a bi-continental company and are now up for coffees in Stockholm again ;-). Looking forward to catch up with everyone here very soon.
Summer has finally reached Sweden and the beach is calling, but we’re all stuck in Stockholm making a shiny new travel app for you. So here are some top travel destinations from the team:
