"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." – Mark Twain
Travel is a big passion of mine and I only wish that I could do more of it. Last week I stumbled across the loveliest social travel platform, a platform that lets you follow your friend's journeys as they travel from place to place, leaving trails of inspiration with every destination.
Tripl was launched back in December 2011 but has since undergone a transformation since it first started. Tripl today builds a charming infographic of you and your friend's travel history detailing imagery, maps, who they're travelling with and how many miles they've travelled to get there. You can "Love" your friend's travel plans and if you've visited a destination before you can comment with recommendations of places to visit while they're there.
I especially love the romantic backdrops along with the design and feel of the network, it really does make you want to look for your next holiday! If you decide that a destination you have followed on a friend's journey is one you'd like to explore for yourself then you have the option to click to get prices on flights and hotels that suit you.
Tripl gathers information from your Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and Tripit to build a trail of where you’ve been, where you’re going and who you’ve travelled with along with small snippets of information. Join the social travel revolution!
