Like to travel, but don’t have money to do so?
Written byOctober 27, 2007
Welcome to the world of Harrison! I love traveling; in fact, I like it so much that I’ve posted maps from different parts of the world in my room. Sadly, I don’t have the money and the time to visit places, so I read people’s travel blogs as some kind of consolation. There are thousands of amazing photographers and bloggers sharing their stories online, and I follow them on Spokeo.
TravelBlog.org (add http://www.travelblog.org/rss/latest.xml into Spokeo): TravelBlog.org is a collection of people’s travel stories from all around the world. It’s probably the biggest travel website out there.
The Travels of Stacy (add http://travelsofstacey.blogspot.com/ into Spokeo): Stacy likes to travel; unlike me, she actually has been to places, and she diligently records her experiences. She has even visited Myanmar (the country that saw the Buddhist Monk’s Revolution last month), and that is just exotic and awesome.
Flickr Photo Tags (add http://flickr.com/photos/tags/[tag name like Kazakhstan]/ into Spokeo): Flickr is the best online photo album in my opinion. When I am bored, I would just browse around beautiful and cool pictures from Flickr. Here is one of the little tricks to maximize your Flickr experience with Spokeo. If you are interesting in Kazakhstan (Borat’s birthplace) like me, simply append the tag "Kazakhstan" behind "http://flickr.com/photos/tags/". Likewise, if you want to see … say German castles on the Rhine, simply append the tag "german+castle".
Danielzolli’s Flickr (add http://flickr.com/photos/danielzolli/ into Spokeo): I found out about Danielzolli after browsing around for photos from Kazakhstan for a while (after watching the movie "Borat", I got this inexplicable urge to find out everything about Kazakhstan). Danielzolli is an adventurer/photographer who has traveled around the World, from Southern America to Europe, from the Middle East to the Central Asia. You should definitely check out his photos.
There are countless other photographers out there, not just on Flickr, but also on Webshots, Zooomr, and Photobucket. Spokeo supports all these services, so now you can easily follow your favorite photographers’ works
