Where are you going? Use Wayfaring.

I found a cool map mashup tonight via the 30 Boxes blog. (By the way, 30 Boxes has added mapping to their list of features.) Se llama Wayfaring.

According to their blog:

Wayfaring hopes to be a great resource for people who want to build personalized maps, and share them publically or privately. When we first started talking about building this site, we just wanted to make it easier to find activities around the globe through this map and destination sharing. What bar should you go to while waiting for a table at your favorite restaurant, for example? Just simple things like that so traveling can be a little easier.

Much like Wikipedia, the value or goodness that will come from this site will come from those who use it. Almost everything can be edited and changed, so be good to each other. The trip you save might be your own.

You basically find a spot you want to note on their embedded Google Map, name it, click it, tag it, describe it. Later, you can add photos and do other cool stuff.

I mapped out tonight all of the places I have been overseas. If you want to check my first map out, do it here.
