This has to be one of the worst designed websites I've seen in awhile.

Spoiler, find the tiny down arrow in the bottom left hand corner because mousewheels aren't a thing and having your navigation in a noticeable place is so western.

At first I thought the tiny down arrow was a "downvote" button. Which is something I could have used for the entry for my country - the "story" was both extremely superficial and inaccurate. On a positive note, at least it was very short.

I like the pictures. I wish the stories (as far as I've seen) were a bit longer.

Some items have more story available. Follow the links to their sources. For example, the DRC one has a link to the guy's website ( which has the full tale under "Journeys". On the other hand the Iranian one just goes to Flickr.

Also, this deeper link offers a lot more posts than just the half-dozen things you see on the front page. It has a menu.

Lots of pretty pictures by a self-promoting privileged world traveler.

On the upside, that first Norway link? I'm going there next month!

Shucks, I thought it was gonna be like AirBnB or Couchsurfing for travelers, like... find random strangers to travel to exotic places with! There's no way that could go wrong!

.... hell, *I'd* do it...

The traditional way to do that is to go the first hostel by yourself, then latch onto someone going the direction you want.
