One day this will be me! (Photo/Dan Wayland)

Number 1 on my bucket list, once I find the guts, is to skydive. Vagabondish’s article highlights the best places to skydive around the world.

While most people love to travel, most also hate the dreaded 3-day car ride it can take to get across the country, when avoiding airfare. Here are Tripbases’ 55 ways to enjoy a long car ride. While most of these are best suited for children, when you are trapped in a car, desperate times call for desperate measures. So next time you’re on a road trip, retreat back to your toothless days and enjoy yourself!

As someone who has never really backpacked, as in no more than one day, I’ve always wondered how you decide what to pack. All the things you once thought were necessary don’t seem so important when your pack’s weight starts rising. Poor travel blogger give’s a detailed description (complete with photos) about what gear he packs on his trip. Also helpful are the comments left by other readers.

Like I said in my last post, travel is usually thought of as a selfish adventure to get away from the hustle and bustle of real life. Cheap travel tips (one of my new favorite blogs, btw) tells why traveling is actually beneficial for our health. Next time you want to take a trip–don’t feel guilty, pretend it’s doctor’s orders!

Everyone needs a little trashy news–and, hey, at least this one pertains to travel! Apparently, Paris Hilton got denied access into Japan. This article by Gadling has a few speculations as to why.
