We’ve Joined Pinterest!

I have to admit like a lot of people out there Pinterest has become one of our main sources of kitten and puppy pictures.  The picture-focused social media site  allows its members to post images with short captions and arrange them by subject on boards. You can then share your boards and pins with others who follow you via Facebook and Twitter.  I will admit that at least one of my Pinterest boards is filled with the aforementioned kitten and puppy pictures, but the other day it dawned on me that we could use the social site as another outlet for No Kids, Will Travel.

Anyone can pin a picture of a beautiful and interesting place on a board; it doesn’t take much effort. What we noticed was that many times these pictures only have captions like “Beautiful” or “Italy”. We see an opportunity here – a chance to give you a little more than a one-word description.

We promise each picture we pin will have not just a caption but an informative description. The description will of course be constrained by the 500 character limit, but we’ll include both the location and useful information about the place.

The No Kids, Will Travel Pinterest page can lend itself to being a mini guide book of sorts, a place you can go to find helpful pictures and descriptions of places you’ve been (or may want to visit someday).

Right now we’re starting with pins describing all of the places we’ve been. That should keep us busy for a while! Come join us on a virtual vacation – you won’t even need to pack a bag or tango with the TSA!

About No Kids, Will Travel

In the eyes of their friends and family, Amanda and Zeke are a young jet setting couple without any real responsibility. In real life, the stress of work and raising a kitten push them to flee reality at every opportunity. The "lack of obligation" gives them the chance to explore the world.
