Travel planning has never been more visually fun than it is now with Pinterest. Pinterest is a website that allows people to gather the cool photos they find online onto their own “boards” so they’re easy to find again. Pinterest preserves a link to the original website so you can go back to it with just a click.
Crafts, recipes, do-it-yourself projects, decorating, travel ideas, and anything else that interests you can be organized so you can easily reference it again.
You can make boards for any topic you wish, from wedding planning to cupcakes to vintage jewelry. Use the search bar to connect with people who share your interests, and see what things they’ve added to their boards.
Of course, using Pinterest for travel planning is a natural. There’s no better time to get started with that than right now, because you could win a great prize from Travel Kansas.
