We’re always thinking of interesting ways to communicate all the ways hipmunk is a superior travel search — sometimes it takes an image (or eight of them) to remind folks that our ad-free interface is actually built with the user in mind. We’re avid travelers, too, and we’d much rather be planning out our adventure than closing pop=ups and sifting through unhelpful search results (which are only there to keep you looking at more ads).

I sent over a slew of my own travel photos to Shaun (infographic wizard & photoshop master) along with one gem from hipmunk contributor Mike Scrivener, to see how he could ruin these shots.

Bonus quiz! Identify each location (answer below).
