  • 22. have fun, tip and never forget to www.share.travel Hello Fellow Traveller, Travel World Passport has been created by people 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.
