– Photo Sharing Community for Travelers

Created specifically for those who love travel and adventure to share photos of their travels plus provide tips and reviews from the places they explore.

The site can be accessed from your computer or mobile devices. When accessed from your smartphone you can check for hidden gems close to you which will appear on your smartphone map. Or you can check for Nearby Discoveries to see what photos and comments others have posted about things of interest in your location.

I have experimented with posting some photos from my computer. Naming the location of your photo seems a bit cumbersome. As you type in the location possible matches of locations already on the site pop up and it is easy to click on one of those and then add the description of the photo. However, I found that if you wanted to get specific and list your own location description it was less user friendly. You must locate your new location on a map and the process was time consuming.

When I searched for existing photos by location it was very easy to find photos and as you hover over each photo the distance from the chosen location is displayed.

I have not yet tried the mobile app.
