The day started over a nice breakfast on the beach. My favorite food items was sliced up avocado with stringy onions and carrots in lemon juice. I also enjoyed a bowl of granola with dried bananas and fresh yogurt atop. True to the Schaffer way (Schaffer is my mom’s side of the family’s last name, her maiden name), my grandfather brought a enormous plate of French breads back from the buffet line. We love the carbs.

Time to celebrate, we are now more than 50% funded!
I also wanted to take a moment to explain to you WHY I am so passionate about transforming the airport experience.
It was tripchi’s pleasure to have participated, and pitched, in the inaugural Concur PerfectTrip DevCom 2013.
It was not only a great networking opportunity, but also a great learning opportunity. I learned about many of the intricacies of the Concur API, so that when we’re ready to apply for the App Store, there won’t be any “gotchas.” I also met many of the Concur dev support team, so that I now know who to go to for help in case I have questions.
Hello there fellow travelers and technophiles,
Love to travel but hate airports? Us too, and we want to change that!
That’s why my startup, tripchi, has just launched a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo for our airport mobile app, tripchi, which needs your help to launch globally. Our goal is to help travelers worldwide have a better airport experience.
Not only are we entering the age of Airport 2.0, where airports are improving (at least in terms of food and retail concepts), now in-flight safety videos (you know, those ones you HAVE to watch with your undivided attention prior to take-off) are also improving.
Namely, they are getting funny. Airline marketers are finally realizing that the best way to sell boring content is to make it interesting (read: not boring).
Not only are we super excited, but we are also extremely flattered to have been chosen from such a talented pool of applicants to be one of the finalists.
tripchi has thought a lot about our target market, about the people who really need and want to make the best use of their time in airports. Since airports are unavoidable burdens of travel, we want to make the airport experience as good as possible for the traveler. Whether that means helping people find a better place to eat, a quiet place to work, a charging station, or neat souvenirs to buy (at a discount) – we’re here to facilitate that. But, who are the people that could make the most use of this?
This morning I was reading my daily travel news subscriptions – Tnooz, Skift, and the like – and came across a great article on the future of airports in 2025 (thanks Nick Vivion, fellow Duke-alum and writer at Tnooz! (follow him on Twitter @worldli)).
