Best of the Rest (Weekly Links Ending 5/29/11)

by Meg · 4 comments

Before I discuss my favorite travel posts of the week, I would like to share this great quote I came across from the Solo Traveler blog:

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”  ~Marcel Proust

… Now onto the best of the rest!

  • This article came at a perfect time, as Tony and I prepare for our Passport Health consultation on July 10th.
  • Hopefully Tony and I will have some great content to add to this list next year! 
  • History, culture, and food… This post on the Isla Grande de Chiloé read like an Anthony Bourdain article.
  • Art in London: Creepy?  Amazing?  Or both?  You decide.
  • Tony and I were just discussing which camera we should buy for our trip… Maybe we will have to purchase a few extra gizmos for our travel shots!
  • Thanks to Adventurous Kate, I think we are going to have to spend more time in Asia than we originally thought. 
  • I love MJ’s list of 50 travel things that make her smile…What are yours?
  • To this day, my camping trip with Tony in Yellowstone (and the Grand Tetons) back in 2008 was my most memorable vacation (picture from our trip above).
  • Are you an environmentally conscious traveler? If not, you (and the places you visit) might benefit from reading Matt’s insightful article.

About Meg
Exhausted from traveling every week as a Business Management Consultant early in my career, I took a year off in 2012 to travel at my own pace. I am a high-energy girl that loves being active, eating food, drinking wine, and exploring the world with my partner-in-crime (and husband), Tony! I now reside in Portland, Oregon and continue to write about travel, food, wine, and the awesome adventures we have in the Pacific NW!

Thanks for the mention Meg. The street art tour was really fun and now I’m always on the lookout for something when in the centre of town.

You’re welcome Chris! Please let us know if you come across any more great street art tours during your travels!

Thanks for linking to our post about the geysers in Yellowstone National Park. It’s an amazing place, isn’t it?

We loved it! The drive from Yellowstone to the Grand Tetons was spectacular (we highly recommend the Tetons if you haven’t been) and we also had a blast fly fishing down the Snake River in Jackson Hole.
