Vagobond Travel Museum – March 30, 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 30, 2012.
Hawaii Food: 16 Mouthwatering Hawaiian Dishes! Yes, I’m definitely missing Hawaii these days and this fantastic video from Migrationology made my mouth water for poki, mahi mahi and a bit of plate lunch special!

I was surprised to find out this week that most of  the world is  interconnected through email and social media – I know a lot of us were, but I had no idea it was that many.

Most of the world is interconnected thanks to email and social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, according to a new poll released on Tuesday.

While not  a travel post, this little meme found it’s way to me and reminded me that one of the most important factors of travel is giving a hand where you can.  If dogs can do it, so can we!
