Travel Tools: Other Blogs and Sites!

I'm a huge fan of reading blogs- I do it all day at work (I work for Izea, the parent company of PayPerPost.com, so you better believe I read blogs!) Anyway, I love coming across great travel blogs and sites, and I'll share some with you. Lots of these people have awesome awesome tips and entries on their own personal trips- and I gotta tell you, there is nothing like traveling vicariously through another person, if you can't just up and leave :)


Yay for travel. Yay for fun.


Travel Tools: momondo.com

I think I'm going to start listing airfare search sites.

Some are so neat- and some are so...boring and weird looking. I came across this site called momondo, and it's very web 2.0. I placed a search to Paris from Orlando and the cheapest flight I retrieved was through Expedia at $1064. Not sure if that's good or not since I'm not comparing it to anything right now, but I like the flashy parts of the site. The sleek black and shiny buttons, like the 'Price Agent' which apparently will send me emails with the latest fares for the search I entered.

The site searches a ton (437, to be exact) 'low cost' airlines- ones I've NEVER heard of...based on the short descriptions of the airlines, I bet this site would be awesome to use as a source for inter-Euro continent travel, or flights from the UK to the mainland, for example, because they list a lot of privately owned airlines. I don't think this would be a good US to Europe source...

Love love loveeee,

Travel Buyables: Globalbagtags

Heck of a word, eh? 'Globalbagtags.' It's a pretty important word, though, if you are of the traveling sort. Globalbagtag is essentially a luggage tag with attitude. They have a chip in them which relays all your travel information to a massive computer that they can retrieve and update at any time.

Best of all, all luggage lost that has a Globalbagtag is traceable from anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day, through their website- technology is amazing! This is a great way to remain pacified, completely sure that all your baggage and valuables are in tact.

Thankfully, I've NEVER lost a piece of luggage- mostly because I try to only carry on my stuff as much as possible. However, I've seen quite a few movies where lost luggage does not a comedy make. Companies like this are pretty neat, and I actually stumbled upon this site and bookmarked it a long time ago, to add to the blog, but kept forgetting.

I can definitely see Globalbagtags as being insanely useful if you're traveling abroad and have many items to keep tabs on, especially if you are technologically savvy and stylish.

Love love love,
