Travel Blogs: Best of the Week (July 25-31, 2010)
As always, I’ve added more RSS feeds to my Travel Blogs Bundle on Google Reader. Feel free to subscribe!
Here are some of my favorite posts of the past week:
No Respect for the Gay/Lesbian Traveler: Two posts in a row by Matt of Land Lopers, but definitely well warranted. Why do so many ads targeting LGBT travel focus on rainbow and nightlife rather than tolerance and respect? Well worth a read.
Review of the iPad for Traveling: If you’ve ever considered traveling with an iPad, Christine from Almost Fearless lays out just about every advantage and disadvantage for travel bloggers using the iPad. Personally, while I’d love to travel with Apple products, I know that they’re expensive abroad. Read what she has to say.
Batty for Bolzano: You know I love learning about new destinations, and I love this post from Suzy Guese on Bolzano, an Italian city near the Austrian border. Biergartens and pizzerias next door to each other, plus Italian chaos mixed with Austrian orderliness…I love it!
What We’re Reading: By The Numbers Edition: One oft-Googled question is “How much does a RTW trip cost?” Obviously, costs vary quite a bit, but Two Go RTW did us a service by compiling several entries on this subject into one blog post. Thank you for making it easy for us!
The Castle of Madness – Bishop Castle: This post on The Ranunculus Adventures is from my cousin Colleen in Colorado, who isn’t a travel blogger per se, but she blogs quite a bit about her travels! In this post, she visits Bishop Castle in Colorado, which would be a perfect setting for a Tim Burton film. You MUST see these pictures.
Have a great week! And always — if you have a piece that you’d like to see featured, please let me know!
