Dr. Jessie Voigts's picture

One of the best ways to use the internet for travel is to explore and research where you're going - it also provides a great deal of inspiration! One of the best sites I've seen for inspiration is Voyage.tv. They've got incredible videos and focus on several locations. My favorites are the videos with a food slant - markets, restaurants, and more. We were lucky enough to sit down and chat with Ariane Marder of Voyage.tv, for a behind the scenes look att the site. Here's what she had to say...

Before heading out for our final full day in Sydney, Bob and I debated how to spend our short remaining time. I suggested the New South Wales Art Gallery, the Australian Museum, St. Andrews' Cathedral, the Sydney Aquarium, and the Sydney Tower.  I marked these on a map – in the order that made the most sense.  Bob vetoed the museum, art gallery, and aquarium. 

“But, that only leaves us the Tower and St. Andrews.  We'll be done in no time,” I protested.

“Then we can add the others as time permits,” he replied.

I've got an extraordinary project to share with you today. Books of Hope is a program where schools in the U.S. can work to create books for their sister school in Uganda. There's nothing like a book to change a life - and Books of Hope is changing many, many lives.

Book Review: The Diplomatic Dog of Barbados

Every once in a while, if you are lucky, you run across a book that you just LOVE. I know, we can count these books on one hand. I read hundreds of books a year (many of them travel guides and books for Wandering Educators). They are all wonderful, and I would never recommend a book on this site if I didn't like it - and think that our readers would like it, as well. But back to this particular book...written by a dear friend of mine, Winfred Peppinck.

There is something magical about Lake Michigan - it looks like the ocean, without the salt. I've swim in Lake Michigan my whole life - and it can be cold, and sometimes (though rarely) warm.
