Travel the World with Brynne Merkley (‘20) and Colby Triolo (‘19)
In the summer of 2017, both Brynne Merkley (‘20) and Colby Triolo (‘19) wanted to travel the world. Brynne was excited to bike across Canada, and Colby wanted to backpack through Europe. Not wanting to travel solo, they each reached out to their friends, asking if anyone wanted to join. The responses they received were defeating: people had internships and jobs or only wanted to travel for a week, not the whole summer. As a result, Brynne and Colby cancelled their travel plans and got tech internships in Boston, where they ended up meeting and sharing their problem of wanting to travel. Both bonded over not being able to find like-minded travel partners with similar schedules and compatible styles. Together, they wanted to bring travelers together and help people explore the world, which inspired them to launch their company, The Worldwide Travel Network.
