How to Use Google Photos to Share Your Travels

Using Google Photos to plan a travel itinerary is a great idea and can make the difference between a makeshift itinerary by an amateur and one crafted by a true professional.

Let’s see how to maximize the potential of Google Photos to share a travel itinerary.

Using Google Photos to Plan a Travel Itinerary

The first thing I need to clarify is that Google Photos doesn’t have functionalities directly dedicated to the organization and planning of travel itineraries. However, by smartly utilizing the available options, it’s possible to use the Google App for this purpose as well.

Indeed, at, the new digital platform dedicated to organizing travels and vacations entirely autonomously that we’ve designed, we’ve gone far beyond the functionalities offered by Google Photos and developed applications that will revolutionize the way you organize your trips.

The principle we based this on is the same you should apply if you want to use Google Photos to plan travel itineraries: The principle of sharing.

The Principle of Sharing

The entire project is based on this principle:

When you return from a journey, you bring back valuable information collected through your experiences. The accommodations you stayed in, the restaurants, street food spots where you ate, and the activities you engaged in at the destinations you visited.

These are the essential elements for organizing a travel experience like a professional. They represent the “competitive advantage” that, until recently, made intermediaries (Travel Agencies, Tour Operators, and “holiday professionals”) indispensable.

By methodically applying the “principle of sharing,” this information will be easily (and freely) accessible to anyone about to organize a trip.

Everyone will be able to plan travels and vacations entirely autonomously and without paying anything for services and consultancy.

The project provides you with a tool designed to make you as autonomous and efficient as a professional.

All the functionalities that I recommend leveraging if you decide to use Google Photos to plan your trips are implemented and enhanced in

How to Use Google Photos to Plan Your Trips?

Google Photos offers all users with a Google account 15 GB of cloud space for free.

To utilize this space at your disposal, you just need to access the Google App and start using it.

You can upload your photos using a PC, but the real uniqueness of Google Photos is that you can link your Google account directly to your phone.

At this point, you can download all the photos present on your smartphone directly to your Google cloud.

You can also create albums dedicated to your events or trips, allowing you to organize albums for your travels.

All the latest generation smartphones (and even digital cameras, if equipped with specific accessories) store the GPS coordinates of the places where the photos are taken.

By viewing the photos on Google Photos, it is possible (by clicking on the “Information” icon) to see the exact place where the photo was taken.

Clicking on the map automatically opens a link with Google Maps, offering all the options available in this other Google App to complete planning your travel itinerary.

Moreover, for each uploaded photo, you can add a description, the story of your trip, or additional information to replicate your experience.

Finally, you can decide whether to share your album, photos, and the information you collected with:

  • all the contacts in your phonebook (if you have linked your smartphone’s address book to your Google account.
  • specifically created contact groups to share your albums/trips
  • your social networks (Facebook or Twitter)
  • people to whom you will send a specific link created by Google Photos

At this point, you should understand that you cannot use Google Photos directly to create a travel itinerary but can use it to share the information you collected during your travels and ask your contacts to do the same.

This way, the valuable information that until recently constituted a competitive advantage making intermediaries indispensable will be shared with your friends, the community you belong to (Facebook groups), or your audience (your friends/followers) on social networks.

Everyone who sees your album will be able to trace back to the places where you took your photos and read the information you included in the description.

Geolocalization of Photographs: The Evolutionary Leap Made by

So far, I’ve described how to use Google Photos to share useful information to replicate your travel experiences. Let’s now see what awaits you in Triplannerr.

I’ve included all the functionalities present in Google Photos and Google Maps in this new project, integrating them into an innovative environment designed specifically for sharing information and helping to organize travels and vacations entirely autonomously and without any form of intermediation.

Following the “principle of sharing,” I ask subscribers to share their “Travel Reports” and leverage all the tools (for free) I provide to help other travelers plan their travel experiences independently.

The environment I’ve developed is easy and intuitive to use, and in exchange for sharing the information collected during your travels, it offers a vast amount of information related to travels and vacations all over the world!

An exchange based on altruism and the desire to make travel organization easy and accessible to everyone without the need for “professionals” or intermediaries.


If you’re reading this blog, you’re an adventurous traveler, and I want to invite you to experience something unique. We are forming a Community of Travelers who will exclusively try out the new digital platform we’ve created to organize and plan trips and vacations entirely autonomously, avoiding all forms of intermediation.

“We believe that the free and spontaneous sharing of information is the key to making ‘traveling’ a habit achievable by everyone.”

When you return from a trip, you possess valuable information: Hotels, Restaurants, Tour Guides, the experiences you’ve had! These are pieces of information you will never use again, but they are indispensable for someone who wants to take a journey similar to yours.

If you’ve lived an unforgettable experience, you’ve brought home all the information necessary to replicate it! So, why not share it?

Why not leave other travelers the information you’ve gathered on the spot or during your experience?

This way, others can save time (and money) and live travel experiences based on your stories. We want to create a database of information available to everyone.

Join the project, and you too can find the information needed to plan your next trip with the help of the community!

We are creating a digital platform where you can find (and exchange) all the necessary information to plan and organize trips and vacations completely autonomously!

All this thanks to the “principle of sharing” and the solidarity among travelers who share information collected during their travel experiences.

If you want to participate in the final phase of the development of this new digital platform and become a Beta Tester (for free) by sending feedback, suggestions, and new ideas…
