Here’s Great Tip: Binge travel: an idea about traveling three days at a time | Tippe Morlan | TEDxSaltLakeCity


Here is Something You Should See…


Mark Twain is famously quoted as saying, “”Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness…”” Travel changes what we know about who we are and where we come from. At best, it gives us a new lens to see our own lives through, and at worst it makes us uncomfortable and challenges what we believe about the world.

Research has proven there are numerous benefits to engaging in travel, but it is often seen as a pastime for the wealthy and retired. Most Americans who have it, don’t use their allotted vacation time. Even among those that do, most people still do work while they are on vacation. Tippe Morlan wants to change that. In a clever, life hack sort of fashion, Tippe explains how her practice of binge travel has allowed her to visit over 60 countries three days at a time. The way she sees it, the more people travel, the better citizens of the world they can become.

This presentation was filmed during the COVID-19 pandemic, with only a limited live audience of cast and crew members. While applause has been added to the beginning and end of the video, all other aspects have intentionally remained as filmed to honor the struggle and loss experienced globally during 2020. Born and raised in Hawaii, Tippe Morlan moved to Utah in 2010 after finishing a BS in Urban Planning at the University of Southern California. She became passionate about tourism planning and cultural preservation while volunteering at the Thai Community Development Center in Los Angeles. She discovered travel hacking in graduate school which quickly became her biggest hobby. She began traveling the world on mistake fares, credit card points, and airline miles and loves sharing her passion for cheap travel.

Tippe has visited 67 countries, 40 states, and all 7 continents since graduate school, all while maintaining a full-time desk job. She currently works as a Senior Planner for the City of Saratoga Springs and serves as Vice-Chair for the International Division and Assistant Professional Development Officer for the Utah Chapter of the American Planning Association. Tippe is also producing a podcast called Just One More Trip with the goal of making travel more accessible to all. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
