Project Description

Topics: Travel photography, location scouting, Explorest, Justin Myers

While preparing episode #6, I came across some interesting stats that showed that in the UK only, 40% of millennials consider how instagrammable a location is before thinking about travelling there… Well let’s be fair, it’s not only a millennial thing, we can all agree that a great picture can make us dream about a destination we never had in mind before. That is why Explorest has been on everyone’s lips or phones recently: this innovative location scouting app has been consistently making headlines and was described by Forbes as the ultimate instagrammers dream. Today Explorest co-founder, Justin Myers is our guest.
