Big Trip Go To Travel LInks

This InterWeb thing is the greatest thing for the traveler. I’m not confined to the books available at my local library or advice from non-like minded travelers (really, I hate cruises and don’t want to know anymore about them.) Here are my foundational, go to links that I use whenever I start to think TRIP and TRAVEL and planning that Big Trip.

RTW Planning travel links

I always recommend them to friends as a place to start after you know where you want to go and have a Big Trip forming in your head.

Go to links:
Airtreks.com The day dream site for the around the world traveler as you can plan your trip around the world and it seems POSSIBLE.
Kayak.com I check airfares here and then go to the airlines site to book to ensure good customer service (which actually happens on airlines, believe it or not jaded traveler.
Boots N All web site: Excellent articles on witty and profound RTWtravel topics with a bonus open editorial policy. I even have an article published on there about my experiences in Mumbai after the 26/11 attacks.
Lonely Planet’s web site: The grandparent site of budget travel. Excellent resources, but my favorite is the Thorn Tree for questions and quick answers from the worldwide travel community.
Trip Advisor: It’s the product review sites for hotels and cities around the world. Not too great for backpacker digs, but then I use Lonely Planet or GASP – ask other travelers.
