Travel, is sometimes about an introspective journey into oneself. But mostly, its a string of narratives built around the people we meet on the way, the cultures we love getting lost in and the few fascinating companionships that can turn out to be more exciting than the destination itself.
If you have been lucky enough to have found a wander-loving partner on the road, who opened you to an entirely different perspective, who wowed at the same sceneries and felt like a long lost friend – then we want to hear all about it!
Tripoto, in collaboration with Tinder, is launching a contest for travellers who have exciting stories about meeting new people while travelling.
Everything about #SwipeRightToTravel
To participate in the contest, all you have to do is share your story of the time when your trip became exponentially more exciting after meeting new people in new places.

Step 2: Write your travel story on Tripoto to tell us all about that time when you met a traveller or a local who made your trip all the more wonderful. Click here to start writing your travel story.
Step 3: Mention the contest hashtag, #SwipeRightToTravel , in your title.
Step 4: Share your story on as many social media platforms as you can, with the hashtag #SwipeRightToTravel.
An Ideal Story Includes
1. A detailed narration of meeting new people while you were travelling. It could be making friends with new people on the way or meeting a group or locals at your destination. Elaborate on how they transformed your journey for the better. The more details the better.
2. Earn brownie points by sharing a story where Tinder helped you meet new people during your travels. If you are missing the inspiration then try Tinder on an upcoming trip (in December or January) and share a story about that experience!
The contest closes on February 13, 2017 at 23.59 IST. Winners will be selected by the Tripoto editorial team and announced on Valentine's Day, February 14.
The best story will win an all-expenses paid trip for two to Bali for 4 nights and 5 days. The second prize is a trip for two to Sikkim for 4 nights and 5 days.
1. The prizes (free trips) are sponsored by Tinder.
2. The free trips include return airfare for two (ex. Delhi/Mumbai/Bengaluru), accommodation (with breakfast) and airport transfers.
3. Tripoto reserves the right to disallow any contest entry on the basis of plagiarism, obscene content and/or falling under the permissible age limit of 18 years.
So go ahead, #SwipeRightToTravel for a chance to win the trip of your lifetime!
