In 2018 we set out to create a platform to help people journal and share travels better. Why bother with such a crowded market? Because we believe that when you write down your thoughts in a journal, you write in a certain way; you write for yourself; you write for your future self; you write with empathy; you create memories, not simple reviews.
We really think it’s much more rewarding to read a story, not a simple review; to experience a memory, not read a simple description about a place; to feel another person’s feelings about a photo. And My Travel Stories offers just that: a way to search places and/or follow others to be up-to-date with their entries. You’ll get a glimpse of other people’s lives, as they want it to be remembered by themselves.
The backend and website were created with Vapor
, a server side framework based on Swift.
