Welcome to the Vagobond Travel Museum!
The web is full of great travel blogs, travel stories, travel photos and travel videos – the hard part is finding them. I curate the best travel stories I find and I bring you the highlights.
For me, one of the markers of great travel writing or travel posting is just a sheer wanting to make me go there. This great little article on the great migration by Travel Tweaks did just that. I can’t even express how much it made me want to see this…but maybe you will feel what I’m saying if you have a look.
When I see something about VW buses, obviously, I take a look. I’ve had four buses, lived in three of them and wish I’d never sold one of them. In fact, it turns out that I could have made a pretty penny keeping them since the first one I bought for a TV and VCR in trade and the rest were less than $200 each. Nice post by LifeCruiser to remind me of that (and show me the coolest tent I’ve seen in a while). While I was at it on my stroll down the virtual memory lane, this wonderful video of my old stomping grounds on the island of Kauai showed up. Wow, can you say homesick!
This great piece on finding vintage clothing shops in Montreal made me want to grab my shopping bag (recycled of course) and head out for some awesome 2nd hand shopping. Nice job from Downtowntraveler.com who took a totally delicious sounding walk through London this week. Delicious photos, great text and even if you don’t think of great food when you think of London or England – this is an exceptional foodie piece that may just change your mind.
This New York Times article about the Andaman Islands was another one that made me thirsty for adventures. With the great writing and depth of reporting you would expect, I bet this piece inspires plenty of adventurers to set off for the Andamans.
Finally, here’s a post from Go See Write in which he argues that perhaps the guide book as we know it, will soon be dead. What do you think? Tune in tomorrow for my interview with one of the original old school guide book authors Tom Brosnahan and you’ll get to hear what he has to say on the subject too.
