Jump To Your Destination

Imagine you could click a button and be whisked off to a beautiful, random location where you could begin a new travel adventure. Unfortunately, despite what I wrote yesterday about the future being here, that’s not exactly possible. However, you can journey virtually through an awesome new application called Globe Genie.

Globe Genie is an insanely addicting hack of Google Maps Street View, taking the user on an easy, StumbleUpon-style journey to a new Street View every time they click “Shuffle”. To demonstrate, here are the first 4 places I “visited” when I used Globe Genie today:

Glynedd, Wales, United Kingdom

Carretera de Carboneras Camporrobles, Mira, CM, España

Check it out, “Shuffle” through a few locations, and send me the photos at contact@tripping.com. I’d love to see where you “visited” today!
