Beyond Street View?
Have you ever wanted to take a trip through the Amazon? Thanks to Google we can all now take a self guided tour through various areas of the rainforest. With help from the Amazonas Sustainable Foundation, Google used their Street View technology to map over 300 miles of rivers, 17 villages and even into the treetops through the use of zip-lines. The 360-degree camera offers a unique perspective that many of us would never be able to see otherwise. This could add a whole new level to https://geoguessr.com/.
Starwood & Uber Team Up
In hotel news, Starwood Hotels recently announced a partnership with Uber. Now Starwood Preferred Guests® members will earn Starwood points each time they ride with Uber. Those looking to take advantage of the program must link their Uber and Starwood Preferred Guest® accounts and have one qualifying stay in any Starwood hotel in one year. After that first stay, each Uber ride gains members additional points. Bonus points are added when Uber is used during the stay. On the surface, this seems to be a great partnership for both companies to share business.
Get Ready For Baha Mar
A resort unlike any we have seen on this side of the globe is set to open in the Bahamas later this month. This $3.5 billion behemoth, Baha Mar, is said to have the flair of Las Vegas with the crystal clear water you expect from Nassau. The complex features 5 luxurious hotels, countless upscale restaurants and over 100,000 sq. ft. of gambling. The property is also home to the only TPC course in the Bahamas which was designed by Jack Nicklaus. At first glance, this gorgeous oceanfront spectacle will certainly be a top choice for anyone seeking a tropical vacation.
