SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jrrny, a content platform for user-generated travel information, has launched. By offering an easy-to-use content posting tool, users can provide context for a travel experience that other sites don’t provide. Users access Jrrny.com via web or smart phone to create a Jrrny: an image-based travel narrative.
Jrrny.com leverages the combination of location and unique interest, allowing avid travelers and destination marketers to share insider knowledge by showcasing activities near a property. The most popular posts are “up-voted,” and contributors can be followed, allowing for easy access to the best content. Trending posts are updated in real time.
Jrrny was founded by John Kueber, a Seattle-based media entrepreneur. “Jrrny’s user experience is designed to align with how individuals actually experience travel,” said Kueber. “Rather than just reviewing a hotel, we provide the ability to easily share an experience in real-time and connect with other travelers.”
Jrrny’s earliest users have provided a range of travel experiences such as Luz Ardiden for Cycling all the way to Reykjavik, Iceland for Soaking in the Blue Lagoon, and some tongue in cheek posts such as Dallas for Drinking like you’re in the Trailer Park. “We’re looking forward to seeing the magic that people have experienced,” said Kueber
Jrrny is especially helpful for users of Airbnb and VRBO. “I have a cabin on Airbnb, and the first thing people ask is ‘what is there to do?’” said Kueber. “I wasn’t thrilled about setting up a standalone blog that just a few people would find, and was inspired to create a community for others to discover experiences.”
Destination Marketers are enthusiastic about Jrrny: “In our more than 30 years taking guests to the top of Everest, Kilimanjaro and other mountain adventures around the globe, we’ve gained so much knowledge that we want to share,” said Mark Gunlogson, President of Mountain Madness. “Jrrny gives us a way to share our passion and inspire others to join the adventure.” (Check out their post for getting to the top of Aconcagua!)
