note: again, I've been gone for a couple weeks so some of these posts are severely overdue. sorry about that... anyway, I am doing my best to catch up and post (relatively) on time. :)
random things I've been reading that are somewhat travel related:
Fluent In 3 Months encourages you to make mistakes while learning languages... i have to admit that this is one of the hardest things for me to do, although i'm sure i'll make plenty of mistakes in Switzerland.
on another note, they also happen to have funny random posts about travel and habits picked up in other countries. some of the habits are hilarious.
this post from The Great Affair lists 27 things travel has taught Candace in 27 years. it's a short list, but worth the read.
this distance calculator tells you just how far away i'll be from your house. oh, although i'm sure you could use it for other things too. ;)
in case you wish you could travel now but the obstacles seem insurmountable--Young Adventuress lists some common travel excuses and reasons why they shouldn't actually keep you from traveling (although there is some language used on this blog that I personally wouldn't use. just a heads up.)
this writer talks about his reasons for traveling young. To be honest, though, i think most of his reasons could apply to anyone, no matter their age.
food for thought: one rotary student's experience and thoughts on Eurotour.
