Trinity is Indonesia’s leading travel writer and blogger with 15 national best-selling books, including The Naked Traveler series. The books have been adapted into two movies, titled Trinity, The Nekad Traveler and Trinity Traveler.

In 2005, she started Indonesia’s first travel blog at naked-traveler.com, which by 2007 had attracted the notice of publishers. Her debut book The Naked Traveler was a compilation of thoughtful but hilarious short stories from her adventure around the world. The book inspired many Indonesians, especially young people, to travel, which was still quite rare at the time.

Trinity chose “naked” in the title because it means something that’s not shielded and glossed over. Unlike most travel writing, which tends to rhapsodize the beauty and attractiveness of a place, Trinity’s blog and books cover both the positive and the negative. “Naked” is also a pun for the Indonesian word “nekad” (reckless/bravery).

The Naked Traveler series now has eight titles; all are Indonesia’s best-selling travel books to date, including The Naked Traveler: 1 Year Round-the-World Trip (part #1 & part #2) and The Naked Traveler 8. Trinity, along with Erastiany and illustrator Sheila Rooswitha, created Indonesia’s first graphic travelogue Duo Hippo Dinamis: Tersesat di Byzantium (The Dynamic Hippos: Lost in Byzantium). She also contributed to The Journeys, TraveLoveThe Naked Traveler Anthology, and The Naked Traveler Anthology: Horror. Her book in English, The Naked Traveler, Across the Indonesian Archipelago, tells what travel is really like in her own country. In addition, she and her travel buddy, Yasmin, published 69 Cara Traveling Gratis (69 Ways to Travel for Free), targeting the Millennials & Gen-Z.

Trinity has visited 103 countries in the world!

She was an English-Indonesian literary translator, copywriter, editor-in-chief of Venture travel magazine, Radio Personality of Indika FM, a regular contributor to Yahoo! Travel, columnist for JalanJalan travel magazine, and TV host of The Naked Traveler on MNC channel. Trinity won an Indonesia Travel & Tourism Awards as Indonesia’s Leading Travel Writer in 2010 and 5 Most Important Persons in Indonesian Tourism by detikTravel Readers’ Choice in 2014.

With hundreds of thousands of followers and high engagement, Trinity is one of Indonesia’s most influential people on social media. She was acclaimed as one of the 12 Most Influential Indonesian Women on Twitter by Swa magazine in 2010 and a nominee for RCTI Social Media Awards 2016.

Her life inspired many, becoming a sought-after speaker on writing, tourism, and passion. She was a participating author at Indonesia’s biggest literary festival Ubud Writers & Readers Festival, and one of 70 top Indonesian authors participating in the Frankfurt Book Fair 2015 to promote Indonesian literature in the world’s biggest book fair.

Trinity’s love of writing began when she was six years old; she consistently took a role as a journalist in school newspapers from primary school until she was in university. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from Universitas Diponegoro, Semarang, Indonesia, and a Master’s in Management from the Asian Institute of Management, Manila, Philippines.

She has traveled to almost all provinces of Indonesia and 103 countries around the world – and counting. Yet, she still thinks Indonesia is the best country she has ever traveled to!
