Tripper Profile - Todd from New York

Whenever we have a free minute, we love looking at profiles of our Tripping members. There are some really great people in our community and we thought you might like to meet some of them through the blog. With that in mind, today we'd like to introduce you to Todd from New York, New York.   As a host, Todd enjoys being a tourist in his own city. But, in true Tripping style, when people come to visit him he tries to show them the parts of the city that are more than just photo attractions. Todd is an avid traveler - he even has a running contest with his friends to visit the 50 States and 50 countries by the time he turns 50. He wants to invite anyone he hosts or meets through Tripping to play along. No word yet on what prize the first one to accomplish this goal gets! His most recent trip was to Thailand, Cambodia, and Taiwan, where he discovered a beautiful beach and visited the real Tomb Raider locations in Cambodia. In addition Todd has recently gone zip-lining in Costa Rica, explored the pyramids in Teotihuacan, and went spelunking in Belize.

That's quite a list, but we're sure a professional traveler like Todd will hit them all in impressive fashion. As for what he hopes to get out of Tripping, he writes on his profile that he has "met so many amazing people on my travels, and would love to see where I can help. Let me know when you're in NYC, and let's explore together." -Grahame
