Get Your Travel On

It's summer - officially, as of the 21st - and tons of people are gearing up to take vacations, get in their quota of swimming and barbeques, and generally get as much done  as they can before the weather takes that nasty turn into the neighborhood I like to call "Perfect Estates". 

If you're one of those scrambling before winter hits, here are a few websites you can check out to plan your adventures: 

FlipKey: Vacation rentals on multiple continents.  Hey, I want to go to a different continent.

Cool Travel Guide: Insights and reflections on the things that are cool about travel. Their words, not mine.

Local Harvest: Spend some of your leisure time shopping at farmers’ markets and other places that bring the local deliciousness to you. Grass-fed beef, anyone?

OAG: A global network of flight info at your fingertips.

The Roaming Boomers: For all you rich, old fucks.  I mean, folks.  Rich. Old.  Folks

Swimmers Guide: Find a place to take a dip anywhere in the world. This site courtesy of our friend, Gary. Thanks, Gar!

TrailLink: Bike trails, walking trails, hiking trails. This site can lead you to great places.  Ba-dum-bum.

Travel + Leisure: Travel and Leisure? Now that’s my kind of getaway.

VRBO (Vacation Rental By Owner): The very website where we found our sweet rental apartment in Montreal. Where are we going next? is my only question.

duoLingo: Language learning for FREE. Marlaina turned me on to this one. She’s already knee deep in Espanol. Pretty soon she’s going to be ordering tapas for two in Tarragona.

Happy Trails, people!
