Hip Travel Assistance
Just a short while ago, it seemed like I was going to have a pretty low-key summer but I've taken it upon myself to fill these next few months with things that I really want to do and all of a sudden, I have lots of travel plans. One of the best parts of traveling is the research and hyping up that I do before I even leave for the trip. I love buying travel books and reading reviews online of restaurants, museums and parks. I always think to myself that it would be great to have a travel blog that was geared toward my interests so that I could cut down on the time I spend searching for the right sources before I learn anything about my destination, like a one-stop travel information wonderland.
Enter jauntsetter.com. I don't remember how I came across this website but I bookmarked it about two years ago after reading an article on their blog regarding new passport laws. Last week, I was going through and trying to weed out some of my bookmarks when I clicked on it and started to explore the website a bit. With a blog that is updated more than 5 times daily and a weekly newsletter, it's like the coolest chicks are writing travel advice tailored to my interests. I found great tips for most of the places that I am visiting this summer and I haven't even delved into the archives yet. If you are looking for insider advice before you head off on your vacation (or just a neat website to read for hours), check out jauntsetter.com for their recommendations of hidden gems and memorable places to visit.
