Sharing our Travel Passions

There's a new kid on the social sharing block and its name is Pinterest.

Pinterest allows you to create boards around your interests and share with others that might have similiar passions. In our case, that passion is travel and all things connected to it.

Why are we excited?

It's all about passion. As much as we like Twitter and Facebook for sharing our travel stories, you generally have to wade through a mountain of " What shits me about our political leaders", "here's pictures of my kids first day at school", "here's a video of cat playing piano" and our favourite (not) tweets that seem to focus on either "inspirational quotes from 80's love songs" and the ongoing debate between "traveller vs tourist".

With Pinterest, you 'pin' a picture that inspires, educates or just flat out wows you. This network seems as if it was made for travel and the ability to link each 'pin' enables you to share the stories behind the pictures.

How are World Nomads pinning?

Well, we've decided to build our boards around the things that drive us not just as a brand, but as travellers. We've set up the following boards and are hungry to share what drives 'you' through them as well.

Places World Nomads Dig - Those off the beaten path destinations, from the stunning landscapes, the bustling urban jungles to those hidden gems that should be added to every travel bucket list.

World Nomads Who Inspire Us - Those World Nomads that challenge us, thrill us, inspire us to keep travelling.

Travel Safe, Travel Informed - We travel safe, because we travel informed. We share tips on how to avoid the mishaps and make the most of our adventures.

We Seek Experiences - We seek experiences that get the heart pumping, the taste buds tingling, our minds expanding to quench our never ending lust for adventure.

We Travel To Learn - From the spiritual to the practical to the professional, we are always learning when we travel.

We Connect Locally - We get under the skin of the places we travel to, we live it, breath and eat it!

Making A Difference - We believe that we have a duty to give back to those less fortunate. We're inspired by those that look to make a difference and leave a positive footprint.

Nomads Survival Kit - Surviving on the road is more than just about what's in your medical kit, we share the gadgets, tools and emotional tips to surviving on the road.
