Our winners today 🍍

🥇 Entering the exclusion zone at Chernobyl, traveling back in time. by @thijsvermeer

" Eventually the gate opened and we could enter the exclusion zone. Within a few minutes we arrived at the town called Chernobyl, ten miles south of the reactor. It was surprisingly busy as I had imagined no people would live there. It turned out to be mostly military people and I was told the town was save to live in since the reactor's fallout had gone north-west and not in this direction. Which I knew was true."

      Congrats to all. Thank you @LivingUKTaiwan and @pinmapple for the feature, much appreciated it 😍

      Thanks for showing us such a beautiful part of Vietnam

      Thank you so much @pinmapple and @LivingUKTaiwan for the mention. It meant a lot to us and really made our day.

      You're welcome guys!

      Amazing, couldn't hop over to all 😅, but extraordinary compilation as usual.

      @LivingUKTaiwan I wanted to ask if this project is being further developed? I liked this, the idea of pinning your posts on the map is fabulous. And having a dedicated map for your profile as well.

      It would be great if we could also tag journeys. Like adding multiple pins to your post can appear as a line graph showing the route you travelled. And people would be able pin their posts to the routes at the map.

      Well I am not sure how technically sound and viable this idea is in terms of coding & execution. And I am aware that we can use waypoints in the app for a similar purpose. I just felt like suggesting, so did.

      Thank You 🙏

      Hi there, you can actually do that on your mobile haveyoubeenhere app

      You can create waypoints in the app by adding photos, description, date, rating and tag a location. These waypoints can be connected together to create a trip to show where you've travelled within the dates that you've defined when you create the trip.

      Or you can select certain waypoints to make a post which you can also cross post to Hive. However, the cross post will only take the location of the first waypoint and pin it to pineapple.

      Check out the mobile and drop by our discord if you have any further questions,

      Thanks for mentioning my post! 😊

      As always, it's a pleasure to see you on the TravelDigest
