Oh … and for maps, we teach Google My Maps. You can see samples of maps and how each point is clickable and can reveal pictures and stories … just go to our travel blog at and click the menu option for Our Maps.

Here are a few videos on that:

  2. Adding Pictures to Custom Maps #329
  3. Viewing and Sharing Custom Maps #330
