When I sat out to build a new application for travelers I had 2 things in mind: 1.) Make it easier for travelers to plan and book their trips; and, 2.) Help more travelers connect with locals through authentic experiences. Through years of travel experiences and months of planning, building and testing, we are now ready to launch the best travel planning and booking site on the internet: tripsushi.com
Through the process of traveling around the world to over 40 countries I started to develop a frictionless system for easily planning and experiencing each new destination. In an attempt to help more Americans easily travel internationally and have authentic experiences abroad, I packaged up my travel hacks and international connections and launched 2020 Adventures in June of 2015. Early success with the new travel business caught the attention of the Digital Sandbox in Kansas City, MO who granted us with $25,000 to improve our platform and grow the business.
To build the new platform I brought on Phil Baylog, one of the most talented Engineers I have ever met and now the company’s CTO. Phil has spent the last few months building out tripsushi.com, our new travel site littered with numerous new features that will undoubtedly help thousands of more travelers plan and book their international trips in the coming years.
The New Site
Our new site makes it easier for anyone to discover, customize and book the perfect trip for your next getaway. Easily learn about interesting places, see suggested itineraries that visit each place, customize flights, lodging, and authentic experiences in the itinerary, and book it all in one place – it’s that easy. We’ve taken all the difficult aspects of planning an international trip, solved them, and put them all on one site so you can stop pulling your hair out and enjoy the trip. Here are some of the new features to help you out:
Our new Discovery Map helps you find new interesting places to travel. See photos of the destination, learn why and when you should travel and discover suggested itineraries that go there.
Each itinerary now comes with the ability to select your lodging. We’ve hand-selected each option to assure you get the best option in the best location at the best price. See our cave options in Santorini on this itinerary to Greece: Best Beaches Island Hop
