Over the past few weeks we have been using StumbleUpon to assist with our research on where we will be travelling. It has been great for us as we don’t really have a set itinerary or timeframe, so we are ‘stumbling‘ upon places we wouldn’t automatically think to go to!
How it works
It’s kind of like fishing… you have to pick the right search terms, and have a bit of luck on your side.
1. You will need to create a login. You are able to sign up via email or use a Facebook account to expedite the process.
2. You can select what your interests are. In our instance, we used the topic ‘travel’ to find websites and photos at random which are related to travel.
3. Press ‘STUMBLE”.
If you get something interesting, you may have to research the photos or location a bit to find out what you’re looking at. But for the most part, it is as simple as that!
The next part for us is to map the locations using our somewhat creative route planning method.
Wallah! We now get to find cool and random places to visit. Love you StumbeUpon!
