FindPenguins is a start up founded in 2014 and based in Munich, Germany. We offer a free travel profile to our members, which combines the functionality of modern travel blogs with the advantages of a social network. Our mission is, to simplify the capturing and sharing of travel experiences for every trip: world trips, summer holidays and city trips.

You are on 2 week holiday? Did you think of a writing a travel blog? No?

People start running travel blogs mainly for trips of a few months or more. On the one hand, this is due to the high initial time and effort needed to create an independent travel blog, but on the other hand, because writing editorial blog articles is very time consuming.

FindPenguins simplifies this a lot: On our website as well as via our mobile apps, travelers can create and publish posts on their personal travel profile (also offline!). These posts are called „Footprints“ and on the contrary to regular travel blogs, they stand for the visited places of our members around the planet. Footprint posts are created with just a few clicks and contain the exact location of the experience, a little story and the favorite photos and videos.

Every post is assigned to a „Trip“. FindPenguins allows you to document your favorite moments for numerous trips and journeys, no matter if you are traveling a day, a week or a year.

By capturing the personal „Footprints“, our users are developing a highly valuable and growing archive of travel memories and it can be shared with people all over the world!

Etymology

The name „FindPenguins“ is a call for adventure!

The founder of FindPenguins is a dedicated traveler himself, always looking for new travel experiences and adventures. This is probably why he traveled almost to the end of the world in Patagonia, to experience penguins in the wild. This amazing clash of human and penguin gave the project its name.
