Join us on http://share.travel/ and be social, the right way.

Using Social Media has influenced just about every aspect of our lives both physically and psychologically. The way we live, spend time with others, eat and experience a live show or art exhibitions. All that has changed since Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest have become platforms to inspire, share and verify our own identity. The psychologists prove how a single selfie can change the way we sustain ourselves. The anthropologists argue how we relive and fully experience our daily activities only once we verify them with social shares. Traveling and vacationing is no different. How to not become a recluse and give up on the trend completely yet still save the memories without losing integrity and their magic?

  25. hellotraveler www.share.travel Travel World Passport has beencreated bypeople hungry to discover the world.We have formed a web framework to save travel memories. It was born out of continuous search for inspiration. While we appreciate the satisfaction exploration brings, we have a strong conviction that the when looking for true inspiration, we often found it difficult information available online was scattered and often inaccessible. The most valuable and remarkable travel inspiration and information is available on travel blogs, but for those who do not follow them on a regular basis it is hard to keep track of. Our mission is now to gather the most valuable, relevant and useful travel content in one place, where it is indexed and easily searchable. So for those, who are not satisfied with the way travel content is being presented online our product is a web framework to save and digest travel information around the stories of real travelers. It provides the necessary inspiration and contains information to start your journey. Our belief is that travel is about the feeling and the experiences, not the place. Those thoughts and believes are reflected in all the aspects of our work. And that feeling inspires us to be free, travel and do great things. We hope it will inspire you, too.
