About us

In 2008, two members of the MotoRiders Club decided to embark on an exciting journey through the Middle East on their motorcycles. Along the way, they thought of documenting their trip and sharing it with others who might find it interesting and would like to follow their adventure. To do this, they created an online service where they could regularly post updates of their trip.

It was then, in 2008, that LIVETRIPS first began operating as a platform for sharing trips and adventures with others. At the time, the technology of mobile devices was not as advanced as it is today, so updates on the trips were communicated via SMS and shown on a map with no photos. Despite the limitations of the technology, LIVETRIPS proved to be very popular and useful for viewers who wanted to follow the MotoRiders Club's journey through the Middle East. After the MotoRiders Club returned from their trip, they were able to use LIVETRIPS to view their journey on the map and recall their memories from the trip. Thus, remembering the journey once again.
After completing their journey in the Middle East, the MotoRiders Club were considering ways to improve and expand the LIVETRIPS service. They recognized that what distinguished LIVETRIPS from other platforms were its ability to allow users and travellers to share their first impressions and feelings of each place they visited in real-time, without being influenced by the rest of the trip or the passage of time. To capitalize on this unique feature, the MotoRiders Club brainstormed various ideas for improving and expanding LIVETRIPS.
Qualified people have joined our team and proceeded to the evolution of LIVETRIPS giving it its current form. Some of the improvements and expansions included adding more features to the platform, such as the ability to post photos and videos, as well as integrating social media to allow for easy sharing and engagement with other users.
During the spring of 2013, the LiveTrips.gr site was launched. 

Over the years, LIVETRIPS has continued to evolve and improve. With the advancement of mobile technology, LIVETRIPS now allows users to post updates with photos, making it even easier to share their experiences with others. Despite the changes, LIVETRIPS remains a popular platform for sharing trips and experiences and continues to be a useful tool for viewers who want to follow along and experience the excitement of travel.


We would like to express our deepest gratitude to Stergios Gogos and Elias Vrohidis and all the other travellers who have trusted our application and website for their overland journeys. Their feedback and experiences have been invaluable to the evolution and improvement of our services.
LIVETRIPS is a combination of the www.livetrips.gr website and a mobile app, available for both Apple and Android devices. The website features a map showing the latest trip reports, while the app can be downloaded for free from the respective app stores, Apple Store and the Google Play Store.
At LIVETRIPS, we understand the needs and challenges of overland journeys, which is why our application is designed "by travellers for travellers." Whether you're planning a long-term trip or a short excursion, our services cater to the unique requirements of all types of travellers. Initially, our services were primarily used by motorcyclists, but over time, we've seen an increase in a diverse range of travellers including cyclists, backpackers, and those using various modes of transportation such as cars, aeroplanes, trains, and even sailing vessels. This diversity has taught us that the focus should be on the experiences and stories of the trip rather than the means of transportation.

Our Trip Reports feature has become a valuable source of inspiration and information for other travellers, who use them to plan their own trips, discover new places, and embark on their own adventures. We take pride in being a part of this community of passionate explorers and adventurers. Gradually, a beautiful travel community has formed, composed of individuals with different travel styles but a shared passion:

You can find things in common with other travellers/users, but above all, you can get inspired and inspire others. 

At LIVETRIPS, providing our service and application is a true passion project for our team. We do not profit financially from it, but rather see it as a way to give back to the travelling community. Our platform allows travellers to share their experiences and stories, and for others to discover new destinations and routes. Our goal is to inspire and empower individuals to explore the world with an open mind, free from borders, prejudices, and preconceived notions. We want to open doors and invite others to join us on this journey of discovery and adventure. Whether you're a seasoned traveller or just starting out, LIVETRIPS is here to enhance and enrich your travel experiences.

The entire team at LIVETRIPS would like to extend our sincere gratitude to all the travellers who have shared their trips on our app. Your contributions are the backbone of our service and we are truly grateful for your support. The unique experiences and stories that you have shared with us have made LIVETRIPS what it is today. Without you, our platform would not exist. We wish you all the best on your future travels, may they be beautiful, safe, and full of adventure! Thank you for choosing LIVETRIPS as your companion on the road.
