New travel site for international slackers

There's a new site that just opened called, which seems to be expressly designed for globe-trotting backpackers who don't have a website of their own. The site allows travellers to keep an online diary of their adventures, and also provides such cool features as a map showing all the places you've visited (marked with big red dots), a way of describing what order you visited these places (along with what's coming next), and even graphs compiling such statistics as what percentage of the planet you've now seen with your own eyes. I haven't used it myself, but from the front page it looks perfect for all those hostel-skippers who don't want to bother running their own website. (Thanks to for pointing this out.)
