Oahu, Hawaii

Over the summer, I had the privilege to go to Hawaii for two weeks. BootsnAll’s article 10 Reasons to Visit Hawaii Now seemed to be a really accurate portrayal of the highlights of the islands, not some phony way to make tourists flock to a favorite vacation spot.

There isn’t much to say about this post because the photos say it all. Stunning Vietnam Photography by David Terrazas. Vagabondish has his album linked to their page.

Since this blog was started for a multimedia journalism class with a lot of focus on social media’s role in the world of journalism, I found it fitting to feature Gadling’s Top 5 Social Media Destinations.

Tim Leffel’s blog post 7 Ways to Offset Your Round-the-World Travel Expenses is exactly the kind of thing I was hoping to find when I started this blog. He suggests teaching English, freelancing, nannying, or working on a farm abroad to save money on your travels.

I went on a study abroad trip last summer with a Dutch teacher. We all found out quickly that his biggest pet peeve was the assumption that the Netherlands are only good for their infamous lax drug and prostitution laws. In tribute to him, who taught me so much about life and travel, here are 20 things the dutch are known for besides legal marijuana, clogs and cheese. Thanks Art of Backpacking!
