Lonely Planet Video

As you might have guessed, on this site we love tourist and travel videos, and we also love Google Maps.

We are overjoyed then that Lonely Planet have decided to start showing travel videos on Google Maps (now I wonder where they got that idea?).

What is very cool about this new venture is that if you upload your travel videos to Lonely Planet TV you can then cut and paste a little code into your own website or blog and show your videos on a Google Map. I have embedded an example below (although in this instance the map is showing the top rated videos at Lonely Planet TV and not my videos).
