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. I curate the best travel stories I find and bring you the highlights here at the Vagobond Travel Museum.
I found this list from Bored Panda of 21 places to see before you die remarkable because of the selection of photos and the sheer ginormity of the places.
I’m a big fan of WanderLust Magazine’s Insider Travel Secrets series, but this piece on Insider Secrets for budding Adventure Film Makers was particularly useful and good if only for introducing the site ShootingPeople.com
Great post about the Canyons of the Southwest USA from GypsyNesters. I’ve always enjoyed traveling in the USA’s Southwest and these ruins make me look forward to doing it again.
Keith Jenkins of Velvet Escape brought out a great post about the top 10 Islands to visit in Malaysia this week. Great photos, well written guide.
A Dutch teenageer named Laura Dekker managed to break the record for youngest solo voyager around the world this week. She and her parents had to fight in court to get permission to even make the attempt. Travel is not what it used to be.
Speaking of dreams – this week a stunning video made the rounds of the travel blogosphere. An amazing encounter with a troop of wild gorillas in Uganda. Watch this and you will know why Gorillas need to be protected – seriously, this brought tears of amazement…
The Aurora Borealisthis week blew everyone’s mind as one of the biggest solar storms on record brought astounding light shows to Northern Hemisphere countries. In particular, I like this line “The Sun has a heartbeat”
The Daily Mail wrote this great article on a revolutionary walkway that is going to be constructed through the Amazon Rainforest. The days of crunching undiscovered species under tourist boots may soon be behind us.
Great travel stories don’t always come from strictly travel sites.
Finally, this odd photo on Instagram in which a mummified monk appears to be on sale. Does anyone know what the heck is going on here? 16,888 Malay Ringits seems a bargain to own your own Buddhist Mummy.
And while there were plenty of other great travel stories this week – that’s it for now. To let me know about any great travel pieces use the contact form here at Vagobond.com
