SMWH.RE or 'Somewhere' is a beautiful app invented by Paris-based designer and developer, Benjamin Netter, who understands that images communicate a world of information without context. He discovers that Instagram photos give you a much better taste of travel locations, lending themselves as more realistic representations of beauty and location.

Somewhere is a web-based application that allows you to adventure location to location at random, supported by Instagram photographs, Foursquare geo-location and an accompanying Wikipedia article. The result is a beautiful app that's inspiring and informative and might even be the source of your next travel destination.

It gives you some insight as to what shots people are taking from all around the world, creating a sense of community and wonder.
