Sites to See: JetItUp.com
I discovered JetItUp.com back in March and was immediately in love. I am obsessed with infographics and I love anything that will allow me to document where I've been and what I've done. The site is awesome because it allows you to input every flight you've taken as far back as you can remember. For me, I've only really been tracking my flights in one place since January of 2013, so that's all the data I've inputted so far.
I'll be honest, data entry for JetItUp is tedious (unless you have all of your flights stored in TripIt or have a custom CSV file to import, it's manual) and it honestly takes ages. Despite that fact, once the data entry is complete, JetItUp generates some really awesome data about your travels.
You can manipulate date ranges and it will give you information on everything from the number of flights you've taken to the number of airports and countries you've visited. It also gives a fun "Top 10" for airports, countries, etc.
Scroll down a bit more and you can get everything from your carbon footprint estimate to fun facts like the longest flight you've taken.
You can also generate a world flight map, which quickly maps out everywhere you've flown. As you can see, quite a large chunk of the world is missing from my own map.
Finally, if you input future flights, JetItUp will also show you a fun map of what's upcoming. As you can see, I'm finally making a dent in the other half of the world and I couldn't be more excited about it!
Hope you enjoy!

What: Short and sweet travel itineraries for cities around the world - all made for 12 hours each.
Today I came across 12hrs. It's a great concept and so far has 12 itineraries for various cities around the world, each providing a full 12 hour itinerary. As of today, you can find guides for San Francisco, Paris, Barcelona (x2), East London, London, Berlin, Portland, Hyéres, Antwerp, Copenhagen, and Vancouver.
I love this concept because I take a lot of really quick weekend trips. I usually have a bit more than 12 hours, but I love looking at city guides anytime I'm heading to a new city, especially if I want to fit a lot into a small period of time and I'm not sure what to prioritize.
12hrs guides include a hotel recommendation, food and drink recommendations, shopping, sights, and a map of all the recommended locations. Best of all, the photos on the site are absolutely beautiful!
Check it out and happy travels!
