Google churns up plenty of interesting info when it comes to cyber-stalking exes, but it’s not always the most efficient search engine when it comes to researching your next vacation. Enter, a recently launched travel website, built by fellow travelers Chris and Rob after they returned from trips to Morocco and South America frustrated with the lack of organized travel content on the web.

Unlike a major search engine that will return anything and everything relating to the keyword you typed in,’s content is managed by people who tag keywords in each story to narrow your search. For example, if you’re planning a trip to Africa and you Google “Kenya”, you’ll get over 24,500,000 hits, many of which are of no use for deciphering travel logistics (think: “Hawk-eyed watch on Kenya as Annan jets in yet again”). Moebii “Kenya” you’ll get only the best stories to help you plan your trip-a New York Times article entitled “36 Hours in Nairobi, Kenya” or USA Today’s “Tips for an Affordable African Safari.” Planning a trip to a new destination can sometimes feel daunting, but Moebii cuts down on the time you’ll spend sorting through irrelevant articles on the web.
