    Top travel sites (and the new One Bag, One World)

    Curious: what are your go-to sites for travel tips/information?

    And btw.. have you guys seen the new One Bag, One World? A very nice new design + new forums + even more new content (and lots of travel tips.)

    Darcy, I like OBOW. Frank does good stuff. A lot of experienced travelers hang around his site.

    I also like journeywoman.com. They have a lot of tips from people's first hand experience. It is geared primarilly toward women but there are a lot of tips that guys can make good use of too.

    Fodor's can be very helpful, particularly for country or destination-specific advice.

    Weather, airports, airlines, cities, regions and official countries sites.

    If you rent a car, inquire about parking and city driving regulations, so you don't end up paying a fine.


    Train travel:

    If you go to Europe, Train tickets to Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Cologne - Thalys.com


    Germany railway site is very good, it has informations in English about pretty much all the questions you should have. bahn.com - your online travel booking tool for rail journeys, holidays, city trips and car rental


    Of course Frank site and journeywoman as well.

    Frequent flyer forums are good to check.

    If you're traveling to Italy, I don't think there's a better site than slowtrav.com. The majority of the content is written by frequent travelers to Italy, as well as people who have relocated there. They advocate "slow travel" (hence the name), in which you spend a significant quantity of time in one place and learn and practice the rhythms of daily life in addition to visiting major attractions and sites. Their user forums are very useful as well for all manner of questions, including when to buy airline tickets, traveling by train, and what technologies work best for the North American traveler, in particular.

    I also find flyertalk to be useful.

    One of my favorite travel blogs is marriedwithluggage. This couple sold all their belongings to travel indefinitely, and their archives are full of information on what they did to achieve this lifestyle.

    Butů I just read through the article on how to choose a backpack, and they didn't mention the Synapse! even though the author was also stressing the need to get a backpack that was correctly proportioned for petite (e.g., in her case 5'2" tall) women, (Just joking, but I had to insert that as a credibility check.)

    Everything she mentions has an Amazon affiliate link. (Meaning, if you purchase from the link, she gets a commission.) Common practice with many blogs. (I also do it but I put in a disclaimer letting people know. That's the law in the U.S.)

    If a blogger profits in any way from mentioning a profit or service, whether financially or if they received the product/service for free, they must mention this in the blog or preferably as a separate disclaimer at the end of the article.

    That doesn't mean you can't trust the review it just lets you know how the blogger got the product or service or if they could profit from the mention.
