Vagobond Travel Museum – Friday 13th January 2012

Valencia Statues Vagabond Travel MuseumWelcome to the Vagobond Travel Museum.

The web is full of great travel blogs, travel stories, travel photos and travel videos – the hard part is finding them amidst all the garbage. Through the week, I curate the best travel stories I find at Vagobond Travel Media and then each Friday, I bring you the highlights here at the Vagobond Travel Museum.

These are my Travel Museum Inductions for the second week of January 2012.


travel deals in the New York Times The New York Times this week published a great list of 19 websites that can save you money on your travels. Some fantastic ideas and sites here, also, I recommend you check out HotelsPanel for cheap flights and hotels worldwide.


Food tours in Fez The Irish Times published this very interesting piece about exploring Fez, Morocco with a cookbook from the 1950’s. A different way to see a city that has been written about in sometimes too many ways.



Family Holidays Summer 2012

The Guardian came out with a fantastic guide to summer family holidays for 2012 – including a tree house in Paris and some beach holidays you might overlook.



World Animal SanctuariesGot Saga published this list of some of the world’s best animal sanctuaries. To me, this added a bunch of places to my bucket list. If you love animals, this will tell you where to go to get closer to them.



holiday adventure travelAnd finally, rounding out the weeks best travel advice is this list of the top climbing destinations in case you are looking for an adventure travel holiday in 2012. The post comes from Ordinary Traveler.



Eating on the Road, food holidaysI made some very fun web discoveries this week…first was Road Food Eating Tours – a blog dedicated to traveling across the U.S with the purpose of eating regional dishes.



Observations in Baja, CaliforniaLife Remotely is a blog from three Seattlites who decided to become digital nomads…If this post centered around a drunk campfire conversation with a Vietnam vet is any indication – this could become my favorite blog.

Day Trips for smart people


You gotta love a site that focuses on the travel things geeks love.  Well, you have to unless you don’t like cool geology, Star Wars locations, and other geek things in your travels.


Finally, this was the most inspiring video I found this week. Take a minute to revel in the wonders of our planet. Earthlings Unite!
