Glad you liked it - great blog I dip into now and again
Languages (multiple types of languages; 'learning Spanish in Chile' etc.)
+1 to cities
A little hyped-up and there's no real narrative behind it, but these kinds of tips are right up everyone's alley. Who doesn't want a better hotel experience with little extra effort?
Weird, I'm not getting this from the link... seems the www. version works whilst the non-www. version doesn't
Otherwise a fantastic article! Eye-opening how fun freight travel could be
Incredible experience. Incredible narrative. And it hasn't even really begun...
Maybe. I've dropped that into Basecamp
LOL. Superb superb. I love how it's an open and honest mix of 'yes, there is more to Ibiza than nightlife'... 'but still go for the nightlife too'
I'd love to know more about the beaches of Ibiza - perhaps scope for a follow up post?
Tarifa's a great place! The view across to Africa puts your hairs on end...
IIIRC there's whale watching opportunities too if you fancy a boat trip.
Superb write up - loved the pic. But where possible, Vienna definitely deserves more than 24 hours :-)
Recommend a trip, plus visiting nearby Gibraltar :)
Eye opening post.
What can Outbounding do to help the community of travel bloggers, individually and as a community?
That is *ridiculously* quick. An aircrafts groundspeed in a low altitude cruise for a short domestic flight is likely to be a shade over 400mph but that's ignoring the take-off, manouvering etc.
If trains like this are coming up in Japan (even though their ambitions are to travel Tokyo - Osaka by 2045), then it'll be awesome to see this kind of technology spread across the world. 310mph = London-Edinburgh in about 1 hour 20! London-Paris in 50minutes? Crazy...
Helps it's by people who really "get" great content :)
My only self-submission (!), I wrote this back in 2009.
I live in Portsmouth, pretty much slap bang in the middle of the south coast of the UK. Home to the Royal Navy and largest British ferry port after Dover.
There are ferries that take you from A-to-B, and there are ferries which are a journey and holiday in themselves. This is definitely the latter. There's nothing quite like boarding a leisurely cruise ferry for an overnight crossing, dining on simple, great value French cuisine cooked in front you whilst watching the world sail by, watching sunrise at sea and waking up to a new corner of the world.
He definitely hits on some of the functional pieces... but there's some aesthetics involved to. Heathrow Terminal 5, you check-in and walk forward through the desk almost straight into security (short) then straight out onto a balcony view of the terminal and gates. Logical, forward-moving, airy... best large airport terminal I've experienced by far, but missing some of these features.
*It depends* :)
... but that's a cop out answer! London's mega-multicultural and you'll never get board. New York too, but I don't feel I fit in as much there. That, and I'd trade mild + rain for hot and humid anyday of the week.
What would be really interesting is where do you think you'd vote for in 20-30 years time?
This community is all about sharing new, different and the best-of-the-best travel sites. I've been luck
(A little quirk on here... you have to press enter to create a link after pasting it in).
Some of the sites I've found before Outbounding.org came along:
Most of my taste has been warped by my inner-eight year old. http://www.airliners.net/ is all about aviation - I've not yet got over the noisy, fast jets that take you anywhere in the world ;) Makes for interesting news and speculative discussion, but many of the trip reports are fantastic photo essays: http://www.airliners.net/aviation-forums/trip_reports/
Similarly, I find this forum about a local cross-channel ferry company 'Brittany Ferries' interesting: http://www.bfenthusiasts.com/. If you're ever crossing between the UK and France, Brittany Ferries is by far the most civilised way. And *this* is the site you need to get the best of it :)
Skift is interesting for keeping a pulse on the travel industry (http://skift.com/).
The Everywhereist makes for an emotive read each and everytime (isn't that what it's all about?). Stumbled across via the author's husband's website: http://www.everywhereist.com/
Separately, one of the most eye-opening articles I've seen recently was this (found via Hacker News): http://levels.io/bootstrapping-startup-thailand/
This list is far from insubstantive? What blogs do you follow that make your day?
The new 'write tweets / send DM's for you' is part of the new /submit.
Outbounding will never send things without you saying to do so first.
The use cases are:
Both of these need you to say you want to do this, and by default aren't enabled.
