Who doesn't love traveling? We rarely come across people who don't like to travel. As an avid traveler, we realized that most of the time we have many unanswered questions regarding the places we want to visit, we are hesitant in booking hotels in advance and don't know tiny details about the trip.
While on a trip we always wondered if we could get to learn about first hand experiences of the travelers who had traveled the same places in past but firstly it was actually an uphill task to search those travelers and secondly if peeking for online digital resources we would have wasted our precious enjoyment and traveling time on our mobile phones.
This brought us up on the conclusion that how about an app where at single place we would get answers to all our travelling related question, NOT THE PAID CONTENT but first hand experiences of the ones who had been there.
