50 Sites

I travel a lot and have been to many parts of the world. I even write about travel for pay, from time to time.

One thing that I have to say has made a dramatic change in travel habits since I began wandering the earth is the Internet. I use it all the time, whether for information or just for generating ideas about where to go next. And once in a while my own writing appears on a travel website too.

So I was really intrigued when I saw this website which claims to list 50 sites you've never heard of. For the most part, they were right. I'd only heard of one of the 50 sites. And when I started poking around the other 49, it was quite a delight to see what all is available! There are sites dedicated to complaints on specific topics, one for airplane seats and one for airline meals. There's a site that rates airports based on the need to spend a night sleeping in the airport (done that more times than I care to consider). There are sites with videos and photos, recommendations for games to play in long car trips, recommendations for events you've never imagined... all sorts of stuff. My personal favorite is probably the literary travel site.

All in all, it is a fun place to look around at. If you enjoy travel, don't pass this one up! Even for someone who has seen a bit of the world, these sites have something to offer.
