Vagobond Travel Museum – March 2, 2012

Welcome 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. To let me know about a great story either contact me on G+, Email me, or simply use the Twitter or G+ hashtag  #travelmuseum

These are my Travel Museum Inductions for the week of  March 02, 2012.

This photo set from Nepal just blew my mind. Wonderful serie of photos from Enjoy Nepal. Nepal is one of those places that has always called to me for some reason. Perhaps someday zhen I go there, I will find out why.

 

 

Here is a video that I enjoyed quite a bit. Of course, what isn’t there to enjoy about Paris. If you are gong for the first time, this video offers a nice overview. If you have already been, it’s a nice reminder of why to go back.

 

Nothing says travel like eating strange new foods and the truth is that you will find little as strange as the night market in Beijing. This great post from AroundtheWorldL illustrates tha nicely.

 

 

 

If you feel like the zorld has become too organized and regular you will defintely appreciate seeing this list of seven unusual places to travel and things to do once you are there. Have you done any of these yet?

 

 

 

Ethan Geilber zrote this insightful piece that poses a great question – Why aren’t more travel bloggers writing about responsible travel? One has to wonder if this is because of a lack of market incentive or if it is simply overlooked. Read on to find out more.

 

 

 

If you feel like you are missing out on the history of Europe while you travel, be sure to read this great list of 10 Charming Oldtowns in Europe fro, TravelAway.

 

 

 

If you are planning to travel in China, be sure to check out this nice photoset of what various finger signs mean in China…and yes, the middle finger being flown is universally understood.

 

 

 

While some will argue that this article from the Guardian misses some of the best streetfood in the world, the truth is, it’s a pretty good list! Have a read and then let us know what you would add to the list.

 

 

 

Finally, here is a great post filled with 10 packing tips from some vagabonds who definitely know of what they speak. The fact that this comes from National Geographic Traveler should ensure that you click on this very helpful post.
