Great Travel Links for 29 June 2009
Welcome to a short list of useful reads from around the Web – I used to post this on most Mondays but have been a bit, ahem, diverted lately.
*** A huge thank you to the blogs who hosted the bi-weekly/fortnightly Carnival of Cities recently: Nerd’s Eye View, UpTake Attractions, Ajay’s Writings on the Wall, Fear and Loathing – The Gonzo Papers and Eyeflare. The next edition of this blog carnival (featuring posts about any aspect of a SINGLE city) is scheduled to be hosted here on Family Travel. Submit your posts here by noon CST 30 June.
*** Of course it isn’t February, and it doesn’t matter, either – Black History Year: 7 spots to keep learning year-round.
*** Right here on BootsnAll: 6 ways that traveling with kids can actually improve your travel experience.
*** Welcome consumer travel expert Chris Elliott‘s personal family blog, Souvenirist. Check it out!
*** Yeah, give ’em hell! Rules for Parents at Children’s Museums from Travels with Children. Hint: you can’t drop ’em into a room and disappear, as understandably tempting an option as that may be….
*** I love me some World Hum….if you don’t read them already, enjoy Eight Great Family Travel Stories.
*** The UK reports in – a British Mum blog at Have A Lovely Time.
*** They’re so highly respected and they are SO not into glitz – National Geographic Traveler brings you their Family Vacation Planner.
*** Are you in the US Pacific Northwest? Summer Family Fun in Seattle from WanderMom.
*** This looks wonderful for families – the outdoor Starlight Theatre, on the Kansas City tourism Web site.
Finally, I wanted to let you know that I’ll be launching a business soon; an online learning community with entrepreneurship expert Becky McCray, including my new personal blog that is focused on how travel and tourism organizations can use social media.
More details to follow….
