New partners, new sites, new worlds

I am highly delighted to be posting my first blog on the new site. There’s been a fair bit happening here at TTHQ notably the initiation and engagement of two brand new partners – Werner and Rene Smit in South Africa ( / and Angie Barnard on Vancouver Island, Canada ( Werner Smit is a Groupon veteran and well versed in the vagaries of of building communities and recruiting local suppliers and is based in Cape Town. Angie is a well known local entrepreneur hailing from Nanaimo and the owner of of the prestigious Painted Turtle.  We are absolutely delighted to welcome them to the TripTide family and together we have already made considerable inroads in creating new communities and visitors.Our vision is to create many more TripTide hubs to expose those hidden nuggets that only the locals know about and of course to find global travellers to visit. So far so good –  if there are any thrusting entrepreneurs that want to get involved in community travel I would be delighted to hear from them – just ping me on or skype me on peterrichards1957
