Trippy, the social travel website and app, announced its advisors and mother of two, Soleil Moon Frye is one of them. If you’ve always wanted to travel with your kids but aren’t sure where to go for that family fun vacation, what hotels are the most kid-friendly or which restaurants have the best kids menus, you’re in luck. As one of Trippy’s advisors, Soleil will share her favorite family-friendly travel destinations and tips on Trippy’s new visual inspiration boards, which just went live today.
Mommy travelers can visit Soleil’s boards on Trippy and get the scoop on her favorite kid-friendly travel destinations. For example, is it worth waiting in line at Dotties in San Francisco for those mouth-watering pancakes (she says it is!), and where to take the kids for a picnic in Los Angeles (LACMA… who knew!?). It’s a great way to inspire travelers and share awesome advice from someone people already trust and turn to.
Whether you’re planning a vacation, or just dreaming about a getaway, Soleil will provide inspiration for any travel savvy mom. Check out her travel inspiration boards hereand start building your own today!
Trippy (Trippy.com), a social travel website and mobile app designed to inspire and plan travel, announced its advisory board members which include: Jason Mraz, Rachel Zoe, Anthony Bourdain, Kevin Rose, Tim Ferriss, Randi Zuckerberg, Andrew Zimmern, Gary Vaynerchuk, Chase Jarvis, Soleil Moon Frye, Soraya Darabi, Johnny Jet, Veronica Belmont, Kim Mance, Brett Snyder, Gary Arndt, Peter Shankman and Boo (“The World’s Cutest Dog”).
This diverse group of influencers and passionate travelers each offer a unique lifestyle perspective when it comes to travel – for everyone from the foodie and fashionista to the pet lover or techie. In their role as advisors, they will use Trippy to share their travel experiences and inspire other travelers.
As people visit Trippy, they’ll also get an early preview of the site’s next evolution, referred to internally as “Project Delightful.” This sneak peak provides a look at Trippy’s new visual-browsing experience, which is focused on the serendipitous discovery of travel ideas through photos. The experience allows people to view pages of travel photos, click on the places they want to go and have been to, and add travel ideas to visual inspiration boards. Custom boards can even be made for any category, from ‘Feeling Beachy’ and ‘Weekend Getaways’ to ‘Just Eat It’ and ‘Get Cultured.’
“With visual browsing, we’re really taking people all the way from dreaming to doing now, and we are so honored to have such an esteemed group of advisors leading the way to inspire great travel,” said J.R. Johnson, founder and CEO of Trippy.com. “As a new site, we’re able to be fast and focused as we take in how people respond to Trippy. It’s in that spirit of innovation that we’re giving an open look to the public of where we’re headed with Project Delightful.”
Each travel photo is geo-tagged, which helps people remember the locations of all the places they’re inspired to visit and also allows them to see their collection of photo ideas plotted on a map. When travelers are ready to turn their ideas into a real trip, Trippy taps into their social network to show friends who know about the places they’re interested in. This makes it easy to get personally-relevant ideas, creating a full-circle travel-planning experience.
