We love to travel. There is nothing else like it. It puts the world into perspective. You gain so much more insight into a place when you actually go there, see the sights, eat the food and talk to the people. It’s way more gratifying than reading about a place in a book our on a blog. For example, I always thought that The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci was a painting hanging up in a museum somewhere until I actually took a trip to Milan, Italy and realized that it is actually a mural painted on a wall in the Santa Maria Delle Grazie. Another example is how I have always been impressed with ancient Greek ruins. Once you visit Athens and climb the Acropolis, it is all that much more impressive.
People who travel often always get this infamous question. “What was your favorite place you’ve visited?” On the outside this seems like a pretty straightforward question, but when you start to ask why one place is your favorite or why you chose this location over another the question becomes more complicated. To help answer this question, we came up with the rating criteria below of what would be important to travelers heading to a new destination.
Things to Do and See
Another reason for this site is that there are a lot of locations around the world that seem great when you read about them or see them on TV. But when you finally make it there, you soon realize that it doesn’t live up to the hype. On the flip side, there have been occasions where you take a trip somewhere that people rarely talk about only to find that this place is awesome. That’s why we let our users write their own reviews of a travel destination. We don’t want you to just take our word for it. We want others to share their experiences with fellow travelers.
To help our users out, we allow you to log into the site through your social media accounts instead of having to remember yet another user name and password. You can log into the site via Facebook, Twitter, or Google +.
Our ultimate goal is to share our travel experiences with fellow travelers and to encourage those that are interested in travel to start. The world is a big place and there will never be a shortage of things to do and see. Hopefully, we can help inspire your next travel adventure.
