·         Expedia launches collection of travel bucket lists on new look blog – Out There Starts Here

·         Bucket lists based on passions and interests – from the usual favourites to the weird and wonderful

·         Travellers can submit their ‘most wanted’ bucket list themes for curation by Expedia

Expedia, the world’s largest online travel company, today unveiled a new online campaign that combines personal passions with travel bucket lists: Listopedia.

Aussie adventurers, foodies, fashionistas, music aficionados, sports nuts and everyone in between, can draw inspiration for their travel planning from Listopedia bucket lists which range from the worldwide cupcake guide, the birthplace of sport, and – for those inclined to soak and stay – the ultimate hotel bathtub bucket list.

Louise Crompton, Director of Brand Marketing, Expedia ANZ, said: “At Expedia, we truly believe in living life to the fullest – doing the things you love and doing them more often. It is from this belief that Listopedia was born, bucket lists based on niche passions like food, sport, music and fashion just to name a few.”

“We’re also calling on travellers to suggest their ideas for bucket list themes, which Expedia’s team of experts will curate and post online. The world’s a big place, so let’s see what we can dream up as the ultimate travel experiences!”

Listopediawill have its own section on the Expedia travel blog, Out There Starts Here, which launched earlier this year and is a one-stop-shop for the best travel ideas and advice for trips long or short.

The magazine-style blog with stunning photography and insightful content is updated regularly with stories from a team of bloggers and Expedia experts. Readers can get practical information on everything from how to take a short break in style, Bangkok’s five essential street eatshow to survive long haul flights with kids, and get ideas on where to travel based on top trending destinations and unique sleeps.

Listopedia holds almost unlimited scope for new list creation. Travellers can suggest bucket list themes for Expedia’s team of experts to curate by using #listopedia #Bucketlist on Facebook, Twitter and Google+.
