100 Natural Wonders Of The World
"I want to go to there" & KRISATOMIC Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, Germany by Luiz Pires There are so many places I want to see, I’ve been browsing and bookmarking and basically putting together travel porn (oh dear, that phrase isn’t going to be good for my blog search results is it). I’m going to Nice in may and maybe Davos in the summer, so that should satisfy me for the year. If I had unlimited funds I’d do a leisurely Trans Siberian Railway route through Russia and then travel around China and Japan.

Mopeds in Mykonos | Travel for Love I have a friend getting married soon who’s honeymooning on the Greek Islands. Her planning is reminding me of the only time I’ve been to Greece, on a Mediterranean cruise with my mom, and one particularly fun day we spent on Mykonos. Mom and I learned quickly that we did not want to be anywhere near the cruise ship tours where you get herded around town with 20 other people following a guide all day. When we landed in Mykonos we let the rest of the passengers rush to their tours and enjoyed a leisurely breakfast. We got to talking to a nice couple who were also enjoying a later breakfast and avoiding the ship tours. Cindy and Phil mentioned they planned on renting scooters for the day and invited us to join them.

20 free attractions in London - travel tips and articles - Lonely Planet - StumbleUpon Who cares if London's hotels and restaurants tend to be on the expensive side?

London, thank you! Here's the mere start of the free list: 1.
Sasha Cagen: Five Reasons to Travel Alone During 2010, as I traveled alone through France, Brazil, Colombia and Argentina, I regularly encountered people who found it courageous of me to travel alone. I remember a hairstylist in Bogota. As she blow-dryed my hair, she told me she couldn't picture it. I asked her why. She couldn't really say. So it goes.

Where The Hell Is Matt?
pack-like-a-pro-with-the-bundled-wrapping-method-301435.php from lifehacker.com I've used this method for over a dozen years, and many hundreds of flights. Though there have been a number of TSA inspections along the way (and several equivalents in other countries), I've yet to have anyone unwrap my clothing bundle. If they did, though, I would simply rewrap it ... takes less than a minute, about the same time as it would take me to repack my clothes using any other method (faster, in fact, than either rolling or packing in individual plastic bags, both of which are decidedly inferior methods — albeit better than simply "folding and stacking"). 9/20/07 7:27am

If you're like many young students graduating from high school or college, you're probably planning a little time off -- perhaps a trip abroad in that great American tradition of backpacking. But stuffing whatever you happen to have lying around your room into a bag is a terrible idea for such a journey. You'll want to be properly prepared, and, if you're anything like us, that means making sure you've got the right tech tucked away in the deep recesses of that brand new 70-liter pack you picked up.

Catching one of nature’s jaw-dropping light shows, the auroras, can be a chilly experience, especially in the northern hemisphere. Away from the distracting city lights and city comforts and into dark, cold wilderness can be a daunting experience for some. So for those of us who would still like to catch a glimpse of the awe-inspiring northern lights, but would prefer to be relatively warm, there is a place out in northern Finland, amongst the reindeer, where you can find a field of igloos. Except the igloos here are not made from snow. Instead, the igloos here are made from glass that might be mistaken for clear transparent ice. This is Hotel Kakslauttanen, where the experience of viewing the northern lights can be done from a comfortable bed in a warm room with a special glass that keeps all the heat in.

What $1 buys around the world - travel tips and articles - Lonely Planet At Lonely Planet, we're big fans of the travel bargain. After all, the first guide we produced was Asia on the Cheap - and then Southeast Asia on a Shoestring. Just recently we've had articles about countries that can still be travelled on the cheap and how to cope in Copenhagen if you're down to your last krone. Little surprise then that we loved Contemporary Nomad's blog post about what $1 can buy you in the Philippines. The answer?
