and Links to Other Travel Websites
If you're new to backpacking, trying to find good online travel resources is sometimes like looking
for a needle in a haystack!
So what do I mean by "good" online travel resources?
I mean content - with high value information.
Who doesn't appreciate real and personal information -- sprinkled with passion! :-)
The goal with this page is to direct you to other travel related topics with high value information.
I've collected sites that I believe will help you in the process of planning your travels in Asia,
Europe, Australia, New Zealand, North America, Africa and South America.
The list of online resources in this article will continue to grow!
When I stumble upon a great travel website, I will put it on the list.
