Some Travel Inspiration from The World Geography

A great and simple website that I often find myself browsing endlessly is The World Geography. It's mainly a compilation of pages listing interesting destinations, but some of them are truly fascinating. Here's a sampling I have recently browsed through:

18 Ways to Travel Free (or Nearly Free)

A helpful website that I often happen upon is Traveldudes. They have a multitude of articles focused primarily on traveling close to the ground, interacting with locals and such. (As you might be able to tell, that is really the only way to travel, in my opinion.) And Traveldudes also provides a great community of like-minded travelers to share tips and inspiration.

One interesting tip they recently shared is 18 ways to travel free (or nearly free). Check it out, and hopefully try out some of these tips yourself!
