Vienna, March 30, 2010. The online travel guide tripwolf (http://www.tripwolf.com) knows how 21st century travelers tick: The tripwolf manifesto (http://www.tripwolf.com/en/page/manifesto) has been shaped by the collective travel experiences of more than 50,000 registered „tripwolves,“ almost 2 million visits per month to tripwolf.com, and over 100,000 tripwolf iPhone app users.
