GoNanaimo.com announces the creation of the Nanaimo 50-Kilometer Holiday with seven self-guided tours within a 50-kilometer radius of Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. As gasoline prices and exchange rates unpredictably rise and fall, vacationing locally becomes more attractive and Vancouver Island has so much to offer. The 50-Kilometer Holiday includes two walking tours within Nanaimo and five driving/bicycling tours to nearby mid-island destinations. Each tour is carefully crafted with a… Continue

It’s been a cold winter here in Brooklyn, and we've been busy sorting through dozens of nominations to find the best of the best independently owned accommodations for our website. We’ve selected eight cool spots as “Darn Good Digs,” all locally owned with rooms under US$150. (Rooms start at US$40!) These digs offer great value for the money, and stand… Continue

One of the largest pixel photographs. It truly feels like you are there. Can any of you world travelers tell me if you've been here? If so, does the ultra clear photo do it justice?

Yesterday the Telegraph.co.UK made a list of the top 50 travel-related tweeters, and I made the list - TWICE! I say twice because not only was Heather_Poole (me!) listed, which was a bit of a shock, but Gadling was also listed, which makes perfect sense due to the fact that Gadling is an amazing travel website. Here's what Donald Strachan wrote about twitter...
'There are as many different uses as there are users' - one includes an… Continue

There are around 7,000 pubs in London… so how do you make sure you end up with a good pint (and not piss) when there’s such a long, long list?
Well, quite simply, there isn’t a magic formula - there are hundreds of good drinking spots in the vast area over which the city sprawls… you just have to find them first!
Here, then, are 10 of my favorites - intended, not as a definitive guide to London nightlife, just a way to… Continue

Where do you live?
Right now in Bangkok, but before that in NYC for many years.
Bangkok, wow! Pretend I'm a tourist and I've just asked you to recommend a few places to check out while I'm visiting Bangkok, places you actually go to, what would you suggest?
The Vertigo bar on top of the Banyan Tree hotel (pictured below), the Oriental Spa at the Oriental Hotel, the Tea Room at the Erawan Hyatt… Continue

On my next trip to Argentina, I will definitely go back to Siga La Vaca
, an excellent, inexpensive all-you-can-eat restaurant with several locations in central Buenos Aires and the suburbs. For US$20 per person you can indulge in appetizers, excellent beef, chicken, and/or pork, salad bar fare, sides and dessert. Your first drink (wine, beer or soft drink) is also included. Stop by for lunch on a weekday, and you pay less than US$15.… Continue

Whenever I am shopping while abroad, I inevitably find myself in a food hall. At the most basic level, a food hall is any indoor area that offers a variety of food for sampling and purchasing. They are often found in department stores, but can also operate independently. A food hall is more than an indoor market or run of the mill mall food court, however. A food hall is above all an exhibition of local and international artisinal food.…

When I tell people I absolutely love traveling on my own they look at me like I'm crazy. With a skeptical eye they usually pause, think for a second, then ask where I stay. When I respond with, "Hostels - they're amazing" I usually get a sideways look, another pause and then "Did you see the movie Hostel?'. It's a shame really that in many ways that movie has become our generation's Jaws - only this time frightening the… Continue

I've been a big fan of Netvibes for the last two years. This is where I get all the RSS updates from the Travel blogs I follow.
But Netvibes has also plenty of widgets that can make trip planning very easy for travelers. I wonder why tourist offices are not jumping on this tool to create dedicated page for their location. Building a page is a no-brainer and with the RSS updates, lists of travel deals or events will get updated… Continue

Love your blog and your web site! I laugh all the time. I usually only fly once a year for a cruise, but when I do I always see people doing what you write about and I laugh. I also try to remember to do and not do what you write about. I've never had a bad experience with flight staff or any flight for that matter. I'm about to go on vacation and I do have a question about luggage. With all the restrictions on checked… Continue
