Using Your iPod For Family Travel.

I’ve written in previous posts about iPod audio tours of Boston and the Rick Steves audio tours (specifically a walking tour for Paris) and obviously the trend shows no signs of slowing down. 

How about art museum downloadable tours?

The UK’s Telegraph features an article on MP3 tours on some key European cities, for any MP3 player including iPods. 

Heading to the Big Apple with kids?  You’ve got to see the offerings from Soundwalk: everything from the Bronx hip-hop walk to the Hasidic walk in Williamsburg for women.

A more encyclopedic item from National Geographic Traveler provides an amazing overview of all the things that your player can do to support your family travel escapades.

I love this concept if it’s done well; just don’t let those little headphones keep you from occasionally interacting with real humans.
