1.     How to Travel When You Work Full-Time: “Sometimes it’s the guilt factor: that you don’t feel as if you can really “leave” even when on vacation. Other times, it just doesn’t seem worth the effort: how much can you really see in Thailand when you only have 10 days off and that (expensive) flight requires two whole travel days?” Via ‪@cestchristine for ‪@20sTravel http://twenty-somethingtravel.com/2014/03/travel-work-full-time/

3.     So You Don’t Know Where To Travel “‘Where do you think I should travel?’ I’m always happy to respond to emails asking for travel tips and advice, but this is one question that leaves me stumped. There are 196 countries in the world today (though even that’s a disputable number) – how do I even begin to narrow it down?! I think travel destinations are a very personal choice. Sure, there may be certain countries that are easier to travel to, or cheaper to travel to, but at the end of the day you’re the one that has to decide where.” Via @thatbackpacker http://thatbackpacker.com/2014/07/04/best-travel-destinations/  

4.     The Shortest Yet Most Epic Road Trip Ever “Usually when you think “road trip,” you think of vast distances and open highways. Something like driving across the US, perhaps.
