10 Reasons Why Airbnb is an awesome Conscious Travel Enterprise

10 Reasons Why Airbnb is an awesome Conscious Travel Enterprise | I FIND HOLIDAYS | Scoop.it

Some hoteliers hate them, many consumers and cash strapped property owners love them – and so do I. There’s no doubt that Airbnb is proving to be a highly creative and gutsy source of disruptive innovation and, what’s really exciting, is that it’s not the technology but the daring application of technology that’s the cause.

A Curated Travelers Guide: Collect Your Favorite Places and Travel Destinations with Travelavenue

A Curated Travelers Guide: Collect Your Favorite Places and Travel Destinations with Travelavenue | I FIND HOLIDAYS | Scoop.it

Robin Good: TravelAvenue is a new, Pinterest-like, visual pinning space that allows anyone to easily clip and collect favorite places, travel destinations and itineraries.

 

real travel guide made of travelers best findings.

 

The service resembles in many ways Pinterest as it allows its users to clip, pin, re-pin and collect items onto visual boards in a very Pinterest-like fashion.

 

For TravelAvenue the official goal is one of making trip planning experience more simple and fun through technology and collaboration.

 

"Also, online trip planning today is mainly a solitary research process whereas in “real life” the advice people trust the most are their family and friend’s. That’s why we want to make it more collaborative and social. In the age of social, “social planning” makes sense!"

 

Three the key approaches to help users successfully collect and find the travel info they are interested into: "1) The trip collections: it’s a personal space on Travelavenue where you will store all your findings from TravelAvenue and around the web while preparing your trip.


2) The Travelavenue pin-it button: it enables you to bookmark the Internet pages you want to remember and also to link it to the relevant location to Travelavenue’s broad catalog of addresses. For instance you can link a page about the Eiffel Tower to Travelavenue’s Eiffel Tower page. 

 

3) The collaborative travel guide: we use the curation work done by the community through the creation of trip collections to build a “best of the web” travel guide updated permanently by users adding and picking places."

How to write travel stories

How to write travel stories | I FIND HOLIDAYS | Scoop.it
How to write travel stories
A wonderful 6-month course exploring the art of travel writing led by award-winning travel journalist and non-fiction writer, Anthony Sattin

guardian.co.uk

Anthony Sattin
Date: Course begins on Tuesday 8 January 2013

Cost: £4,000

There is a profound and fascinating connection between going on a journey and telling a story. Crossing borders, encountering other people, a different culture, looking for a place to stay for the night, not being quite sure where you are or perhaps even who you are - these experiences provide a rich imaginative resource for the thriving literary genre of travel writing. Drawing on history, biography, nature writing, the techniques of fictional story-telling and a range of other literary possibilities, travel writing offers a unique imaginative freedom to writers and readers.

Travel writing has been described as the literary world's red light district, a genre in which anything goes. In this six-month long course you will work with one of Britain's leading travel writers, Anthony Sattin, to learn about the basic techniques as well as the imaginative possibilities of travel writing. The course will look at the demands of writing both shorter stories and book-length narratives. You will be able to apply these techniques to the development of your own skills as a travel writer and you will be expected to use the course to define a project of your own. Throughout, reading and discussing the work of other travel writers will be a key resource for thinking about your own practice.

Although the course will refer to a wide range of published work, you will need to have read closely Bruce Chatwin's In Patagonia, William Dalrymple's From the Holy Mountain, and William Fiennes' Snow Geese.

Touristlink for travel businesses - another social marketplace | Kay Walten | I FIND HOLIDAYS | Scoop.it

Touristlink has been hitting the news lately as a great social marketplace for travelers and for travel businesses. What has started out as a travel resource has turned into a large social marketplace that can hook travelers up to travel businesses, an intention that Touristlink is very proud of. Though the site is a bit Tripadvisor – ish, there are many more opportunities for travel businesses and travel providers that is cost effective and targeted.

Collect Travel Ideas and Cool Destinations with Trippy

Collect Travel Ideas and Cool Destinations with Trippy | I FIND HOLIDAYS | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Trippy is Pinterest-like social platform dedicated to the collection and sharing of travel and destination ideas.

 

Just like Pinterest, Trippy offers the opportunity to create thematic boards by either capturing unique content and images from the web

as well as by repinning other people's cool ideas.

 

From the About page: "So we're back, to change the way people travel once again. There are hundreds of travel sites made for you to plan your trip. Doesn't make much sense though, considering you're probably not an expert on places you're visiting, especially if you've never been before. Plus, travel sites are typically an unfortunate mix of questionable content from crowd-sourcing, "local experts" (aka, strangers), and people paid to write fake reviews. Trippy is the first site designed to offer a "friend-sourced" solution to the long-standing problem of untrustworthy and irrelevant travel content."

 

From the official site: "Trippy's trip planning tool allows you to create a trip itinerary based on the places you're considering, which can be shared with your friends to collaborate on ideas and recommendations.

 

Trips also work with our full-featured iPhone app so that you can view your travel plans and create trip albums on the go."

 

Some board examples: http://www.trippy.com/About_Trippy/friends.html

Now gearing up for launch, California-based Trablr will give travelers a way to search multiple sharing-minded sites in order to plan and book all the components of their trip using peer-to-peer providers. So, once they’ve decided on their destination, travelers can use Trablr to arrange transportation via car share or ride share; find accommodations via apartment rental, for example; reserve a place to work through a desk share or office share arrangement; and then set up recreational activities such as scooter rental and social meals.
