Now, Pinterest the virtual Pinboard photo sharing website that revolutionized the way we obsess over felting possibilities and Tom Hiddleston is doing the same for travel.

On Wednesday, Pinterest introduced Places Pins, a new mapping tool to help you plan the places you’ll go and the things you’ll do once you get there.

You can add a map to an existing board, or create a new board for your interactive map, and start adding photos as you go.

“Every day people Pin about 1.5 million places, and now there are more than 750 million Pins of these destinations on Pinterest” the social network announced. “You can use your new map – enabled board for anything: planning a vacation, remembering memorable meals, or plotting out your interests.”

Pinterest location data is powered by foursquare, which means you can put your Place Pins on a specific address, as well as add extra information about what makes these areas special to you.
