Great Travel Links for 08 Sept 2008
A good variety of travel tips, advice and links this week….
- Denali National Park in Alaska means family-friendly travel, says Uptake.
- From the UK’s Times Online, a family travel adventure to Thailand.
- From the BootsnAll Paris Logue, a daily budget – how much money do I bring to Paris?
- Those who enjoyed our guest post by the DC Traveler on Washington, DC for kids might enjoy Gridskipper’s take on great outdoor spaces in and around Washington DC.
- Here’s an eastern Tennessee farm stay that is kid-friendly (but rather beyond my budget – I include for dreaming purposes.)
- Two items from Gadling: why preboarding aircraft with kids may not be a good idea, and being careful about running up Web-enabled cell phone roaming charges during international travel.
- Best bets on the Big Island of Hawaii — from National Geographic Traveler‘s blog Intelligent Travel.
- About.com’s Travel with Kids has a roundup of fall vacation ideas, Jaunted has best theme park travel ideas, Budget Travel‘s This Just In blog has an excellent discussion about giving kids a vacation allowance, and (yes, it’s almost that time) here are Halloween happenings at theme parks from WeJustGotBack.
- One of my early posts on the Family Travel blog was about Yokohama, Japan and its unique Ramen Museum, so I was pleased to find this article on the Cup Ramen Museum in Osaka.
- Are you and/or your kids nuts for the sport of soccer?….or football, depending upon your home continent. Gear up for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa by reading the BootsnAll World Cup Blog.
- We’ll wrap up with a stop in Brussels, Belgium (both items from the UK’s Independent) — the family-friendly IBIS hotel chain in Europe has a well-located IBIS near the Grand Place, and seeing multiple attractions for a better price by using the Brussels Card.
