Launch of the Purple Passport!

As many of you know, I’ve been working behind closed doors with an awesome team for many months to help roll out the online travel guide The Purple Passport ( Well, guess what? The time has come to take the “Do Not Disturb” sign off the door and invite you into this portal to a world well-traveled. The beta site is now live!

You’ll see that “TPP” is a one-stop shop for all your urban travel needs, from researching a trip start to finish to creating an itinerary tool sharable with friends. The TPP team has personally visited all the choicest spots, from restaurants and hotels to spas and shops, in the hottest destinations around the globe. And they never take compensation for covering a venue on the site, which means you’ll get the most honest, unbiased travel information for the world’s most exciting cities.

The first stop? London. While the site will ultimately encompass guides to global hotspots from Los Angeles to Beijing, it’s being tested with all of the London content. That said, please excuse any bugs you encounter while the site’s in this testing phase. The team would love to hear what you think, so click the “Contact Us” link on the site (or simply email us at to send questions, comments, and feedback.

As you peruse the London picks, be sure to try out the site’s super handy dandy “Passport” function. Once you sign up as a user, you can save your favorite picks in your own customized Passport. From there, you can print the lot of them, email them to friends, or use the ultra-convenient mapping tool to plot your sightseeing excursion or night on the town.

On behalf of the whole team, I welcome you to The Purple Passport community and hope you’ll pass the word to fellow travel enthusiasts. Get ready to put your stamp on the world!
