Sites of the Week #1

April 29th, 2011 by Tony de Jesus

I’m proud to introduce a new series of articles which feature my weekly selection of websites. This list will include websites with stunning designs, cool animations and effects as well as useful applications. In this week’s collection, we will see Jan Ploch’s online portfolio, Wanderfly, Cuban Council and others.

Wanderfly is a highly customizable recomendation engine that simply answers this basic question: “Where can I go?”. The suggestions are displayed based on budget and interests such as “beach”, “snow”, “singles”, “romance”, and “art”.  It suggests more than 1200 destinations worldwide and matches them with flights, hotels and thousands of activities with the help of partners like Expedia, Foursquare, Nile Guide, Yelp and Lonely Planet.
