I’m a big fan of Wednesdays. I figure that after Wednesday, the week can really only get better (obviously I’m also a big fan of the weekend). And to add to my Wednesday cheer, here are a few things I’m loving this week.
I stumbled on this site (yes, like literally StumbledUpon) earlier this week. You can download 7 different eBooks of best-kept travel tips and secrets from well-experienced travelers. Best of all, the downloads are free (my preferred form of currency). The eBooks were actually first posted in 2010 so don’t be alarmed when you see “2010″ in bold across the cover. But even two years old, and many, if not all, of these travel tips are still useful and relevant. (Also, just as a note, the freshwater campaign associated with these eBooks is over but you can still support building freshwater wells by visiting Charity: Water.)
Excuse me as I sound narrow-minded for just a minute, but when I think of Cambodia, “luxury” is not exactly the first word that pops into my head. No, you say “Cambodia,” I say “rice,” err, “lice.” (Sorry, I should’ve have said narrow-minded and politically incorrect–no offense intended though.) But, rice, lice, and un-PC aside, I read this article the other night on the “luxurious” side of Cambodia and I must say I’m pleasantly surprised.
I met Johanna Denize at the LA Times Travel Show in January and it turns out that she has this very cool, travel-geared clothing line called Clever Travel Companion. The concept is simple, pick-pocket proof clothing. Basically, it’s clothing with a secret pocket for your money, credit cards, passports, etc. My Clever Travel Companion tank-top arrived over the weekend. I haven’t had a chance to really put it to the test yet, but I must say that I’m diggin’ the comfy fabric and style. …Stay tuned for a full product review in the near future.
I’ve never met her, but I’d like to think that Jodi (aka LegalNomads.com) and I would be great friends. She’s a woman with a serious case of the travel itch and this quick Q&A with her in The New York Times offers a sneak peek into her life-long “trip.” An enjoyable little read.
And that folks is what I’m loving about this Wednesday. That and the fact that I found a watermelon Jolly Rancher lollipop in my bag just a minute ago. Ah yes, Wednesdays are good…
