A smorgasborg of favorite travel links and otherwise.
I’ll keep adding.  Ya’ll come back now. . .

The most recent paintings, miniatures & creative endeavors!

Come visit my Etsy store too –

WWOOF International

World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms. Low-cost, feel-good volunteering in countries around the world.

Couchsurfing

Social network where you can find like-minded budget travellers from around the world willing to share their city and offer a free place to stay for the night.

Vodkatrain

Tour company specializing in Russian, Indian & Chinese train travel.  They provide the travel and accommodation arrangements plus a contact/guide in each city. You decide what you want to do/eat on your own. These are the folks I traveled with in India for about 6 wks. We were a small group of 5, including a guide who recommended his favorite local delicacies for me (try the paan and the soan papdi!) & bargained with rickshaw drivers at 3am – thanks Anshuman!

postcrossing

“The postcard crossing project – send a postcard and receive a postcard back from a random person somewhere in the world.” Love that tagline. I haven’t tried this, but it seemed appropriate. They claim to have paired up and exchanged more than 5 million postcards between people from 208 countries. However, if you’d like a postcard, all you have to do is email me. :)

Coton Doux

OK, a bit of luxury here. . .Awesome mens’ shirts with superfluous buttons and colorful patterns.

Scholler

Must. Try. Them. All. Fabulous pastries in Montpellier.

TAM

I’m a huge fan of public transport. Here’s the bus & tram service in Montpellier. There’s much work being done on the 3rd tram line right now – check out the beautiful design for the cars by fashion designer Christian Lacroix.

Montpellier Webcam

On the Place de la Comedie.

SendMoneyPlease

Around-the-world blog by my chief-bargainer-extraordinaire, who swims with sharks, abseils cliffs with no emergency rope, and can wrangle a deal out of an African taxi driver (though I don’t think he speaks French in Russian).

Umaid Desert Safari

A fun, luxurious, touristy adventure. Thoroughly enjoyable.

The Royal Palace in Karauli, India.

You can stay with the Royal Family, tour the palace grounds and farm, watch the peacocks. A beautiful Indian village with a gorgeous historic palace.

National Research Centre on Camels

Bikaner. See several-hour old baby camels. Enjoy pistachio flavored camel milk ice cream.

    Hi! If you haven’t yet had a chance to travel with Vodkatrain, you could check our blog http://vodkatraintravel.wordpress.com/ and this way you can learn more about the company and the journeys we organise – it is a lot of fun to travel on the Trans-Mongolian railway with a bunch of young like-minded people. Feel free to ask if you have any questions.

    Enjoy your journey!

      Thanks Sveta for finding my blog! I have, in fact, actually booked some Vodkatrain travel for later this year. I’ll let everyone know how it goes. . .
      Very exciting!
