So a sweet reader asked recently if I had any info about our trip we made to London. I remembered I made a map on Google while mapping out our itinerary. When I visited it again it rekindled my love of planning the trip and thought I’d share it with you. It was such a useful tool. I know a few people traveling in the next few months so I hope this helps.
On google maps you can create different maps. On mine I called it U.K. Trip (London & Scotland). To visit our map click HERE (zoom into the map to see more details). What I did was after I initially set up my map, I searched in the search box for certain locations I was sure I wanted to see like London Eye, Big Ben, etc. The location pops up on the map and you can see other peoples comments and ratings on the location. This feature was particularly helpful when searching for Bed & Breakfasts because of the ratings.
The neat thing is once you find the location on the map, you then click “save to map” and it saves it to your map you made. You can add comments, pictures, pick the color of your “push pin”, and add links. It’s SO COOL. It keeps you organized and you can send it to family and friends while you are out of town.
