Seems like I’ll be doing some travelling around the world in October (Barcelona and, maybe El Salvador), so I got myself looking at some of my usual travel resources:
- CouchSurfing – a great community of people. You can even get a couch to sleep on sometimes (spending a week in several different houses is a great experience), but the best are the tips by locals on what you have to see or explore in a city.
- WikiTravel – like Wikipedia, but for tourist information. Great resource. Most tourist guides have less information.
- dopplr – share your trips (so your friends can find where you are) and get clues on your destinations from other users.
- Google Maps – sometimes you really need to check how far an hotel is from where you’re visiting…
Any other suggestions? Happy travels!
