Blog: The Hopeful Traveler
More Travel Websites!



Researching travel online is a bit like getting lost in a glorious maze. Explore one website and it will lead you to another, even more informative site, which leads you to another and another… you get the picture. It may be that this is your idea of hell on earth, but for me (and, clearly, many others) it is pure heaven. I've mentioned some good travel websites here before but here's a few more that offer something special:
 
What's your travel personality? Are you the adventurous type or will you be better suited to a cruise? Take this simple quiz to find out. It got me to a tee! (and I'm not telling.)
www.besttripchoices.com
 
Are you dreaming of a special cruise? I mean a really special cruise? Check out this site for luxury cruise lines. See how the other 2% lives.
www.cruiseprofessionals.com
 
For something a bit different, like a volunteer vacation, a study vacation, or a language program take a look at Travel Tree from the UK. Have a bored college student around the house? Ship 'em off!
http://www.traveltree.co.uk/pages/traveltree.asp
 
Pardonnez-moi, parlez-vous anglais? Handy travel phrases in a few European languages.
www.travelphrase.com/
 
"I wonder how many air miles I'll get if I fly from Nairobi to Calcutta?"  At last, you can find out if the airline has been lying to you. (It's 3336 nautical miles)
http://www.indo.com/distance/
 
Quick! How many kilometers in a mile? Liters in a gallon? And just what the heck is a hectare?  This website will let you convert anything from temperature to wine volume. Can no one tell me how many nebuchadnezzars are in a jeroboam?  YES! Five!

Info on the world's top airports. Parking, terminals, number of passengers served, runways.

Before you head to Cancun with just a swim suit and flip flops, make sure no hurricanes are brewing just offshore.

I don't know if you've ever tried to dial home from your hotel in London; but for me, it's as confusing as a Sudoku puzzle. Here's an informative guide for all your international calling:

For some trips, I think travel insurance is a good idea. For others, it's an unnecessary expense. If you're booking a non-refundable package, it might be a good idea to compare the cost of travel insurance with the potential losses if you have to cancel at the last minute.

If you are a senior, (or eventually will be one) take a look at this list of resources for traveling seniors. Surely the best way to stay young! www.transitionsabroad.com/listings/travel/senior/KeyWebSites.shtml
 
Happy Hunting!
