Every month, we write a blog post for Pimsleur Approach listing the best travel stuff on the web. We call it Top Travel Links. These pieces showcase the best travel articles, news and events, pictures, videos and more from the previous month in a range of publications around the world. Here is a short extract from the latest in a long line of round-ups…
APRIL’S TOP TRAVEL LINKS
Is travel a bad idea? Wildlife photographer Paul Souders says it can be. He tells the Mother Nature Network all about his life and career, in which he jets around the world, takes photos and gets paid. That must be awful!
William L Sullivan, on the other hand doesn’t do the world, but what he doesn’t know about hiking around Oregon isn’t worth a damn. And now he’s planning a book tour.
It’s April, so why, you may be wondering, is the word “Santa” approaching rapidly? Simple. Semana Santa (there it is) is Spanish for Easter. Read all about it on About.com. The always-wonderful National Geographic has a list of 10 things to do before April dies – and, unlike us, who will have done it three times by the end of this sentence, it doesn’t mention Santa at all.
Closer to home, it’s Patriots’ Day on April 21. Head to the National Park Service website for a list of events. Meanwhile, British journalist and photographer Lee Howard followed in the footsteps of Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler on the Gone with the Wind Trail.
