Trippy, a social travel site created by JR Johnson, has been redesigned to look a lot like Pinterest for travel.In addition, it has added a slew of influential advisors, from fashion designers to singers to animals.

Yes, animals.

Trippy’s advisory board includes Jason Mraz, Rachel Zoe, Anthony Bourdain, Kevin Rose, Tim Ferriss, Randi Zuckerberg, Andrew Zimmern, Gary Vaynerchuk, Chase Jarvis, Soleil Moon Frye, Soraya Darabi, Johnny Jet, Veronica Belmont Kim Mance, Brett Snyder, Gary Arndt, Peter Shankman and Boo, the “world’s cutest dog.”

The advisers have diverse backgrounds because Trippy wants to offer unique travel experiences for users of all walks of life.  Someone who’s a foodie may want a very different vacation than a pet lover or fashionista.

We assume Boo’s owners will do most of the advising while the pup models and promotes Trippy on its social media pages.

Trippy’s new design lets people browse photos of resorts and destinations. They can save the images to visual inspiration boards too.

Here’s what it looks like. There’s even a Trippy bookmarking tool so users can pin photos to the site.
