The tripwolf Manifesto
A Ten-Point Declaration for Digital Nomads, Flashpackers, tripwolves, and other Travelers in the 21st Century. The internet and social networks have changed the way we travel: today we look up information wherever and whenever we need to, we share our experiences online, with our mobile and with locals.
We believe this change has made a new way to travel possible and we’ve put those thoughts into the 10 points of our tripwolf Manifesto.
