We invite our guests share their stories and advice on what it means to be a traveller today, to find out how we can navigate the world authentically, respectfully and sustainably. Travel is so much more than the pictures we take, it’s the stories we come back with, it’s that growth, insight and inspiration that occurs when you experience a world outside of your own.

The Point 2 Mindset and Solo Travel
In this week's episode we touch down in London to tune into a panel talk we hosted around Solo Travel in partnership with On Running's Point Two series. ’Point Two’ celebrates those who have the mindset to go the distance. No matter your goals, Point Two is for those who are looking for inspiration around every corner.  To us taking a solo trip is at the heart of the Point Two mindset. Surprisingly, 84% of solo travellers are women and 86% are over 35 showing that solo travel is a field that young people have yet to properly explore. So what’s stopping us? Through out the episode our host and Trippin co founder Kesang are joined by Trippin family Peigh Asante and Tim Shieff to bring us their wild solo travel stories, how their identities impacted their trips and what advice they wished they’d know.
