Another Travel Meet Up: Things YOU Missed Out On

IMG_2252

January 27, 2016, marked the day travelers from all around came together to The Gallery at A-Space, Makati for FlipTrip.PH.’s Another Travel Meet Up. It brought together travel enthusiasts eager to play games, share stories about their adventures and to meet some new potential travel buddies! Event after event, we find ourselves in the midst of new friends and adventure buddies, and this one did not disappoint.


PIZZA AND BEER

As they say, the early bird catches the worm!

Our friends from Ideaspace had gigantic pizzas and a bunch of beer ready for the early enthusiasts. As they munched on pizzas and quenched on beer to satisfy their thirst, guests got to mingle and take selfies while sitting on pebble bean bags scattered all over the floor!

TRIVIA NIGHT

In what sea did a Filipino diver discover the largest pearl?

You think you know the answer?

Take a guess–It’s in the Palawan Sea! If you guessed that right (or even if you didn’t) discussing the answer with your fellow travel junkies is definitely a great way to spend the night!  Locals and foreign visitors alike, everyone had fun while learning about the Philippines at the same time!

Everyone brought their A-game but only one team (Congratulations, A Team!) was able to bring home our special FlipTrip bag full of gifts from our friends and sponsors.

STRANGERS TURNED FRIENDS

United by the love of travel, strangers and friends gamely teamed up for Trivia Night. What better way to meet new people than to enter a friendly competition together, right?

It got pretty intense, especially when we started awarding multiple points per question! The lightning round was insane, with Karl (http://www.theurbanroamer.com) naming 78 provinces in 1 minute!

We’d like to think a lot of people found travel buddies for life or at least for the next adventure!
