I Found My Thrills on Blueberry Hill
Expedia: Find Your Story allows anyone to create an interactive visualisation of their favourite journey that they can then share with their friends on Facebook.
The application asks you the destination of your journey. You can then add photos from your trip and also choose the music that you want to play on your interactive journey visualisation.
The finished visualisation presents an animated Google Map showing your journey, which then segues into a Street View animation of your destination. After the animation reaches your destination it presents a slideshow of your uploaded photos, during which you can listen to your chosen music.
The finished visualisation is really polished and a lot more effective than I've made it sound above.
