Web Buzz: Playground for a visual thinker

January 08, 2011|By Jen Leo | Special to the Los Angeles Times

Are you a visual thinker? Let the photos, videos and bulletin-board-style tips of Explore.travellr.com (compatible with Firefox, Safari and Google Chrome browsers) take you to a world of inspired travel.

What's hot: This search-based Web application, a project by students from the University of Tasmania and led by Travellr founder Ian Cumming from World Nomads Group, taps into Flickr, YouTube, Twitter, World Nomads, Gecko-Go and more online travel resources to offer a host of travel tips. Use the search box at the top of the page to get a "real-time mash up" of fresh travel content. I particularly liked the Q&A notes from Travellr, but don't dismiss the photos. Clicking on them reveals a box with an arrow in the lower right corner that takes you to destination info and map links.

What's not: If you like your travel guide info succinct and to the point, this is not for you. Explore.Travellr.com is more a creative playground of travel inspiration that enables you to collect images and notes to build folders of destination information you'd like to save for an upcoming trip.
