How Overrated Is Venice?

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

We spend a lot of time here at TheExpeditioner.com going on and on about places to visit and sights to see around the world, but it begs the question: aren’t there plenty of places you shouldn’t travel to? Of course there are, I just don’t think there’s much use spilling a lot of ink talking […]

Under The Umbrian Sky

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

It seems like we’ve read this one before: a solitary escape to the Italian countryside, salaciously detailed descriptions of food, the name dropping of small villages, but for some reason it’s still captivating, even if one Ms. Mayes is not involved, and even if there’s no Tuscan sun hovering overhead.

Your Guide To Eastern Europe On The Cheap

Friday, June 19, 2009

BootsnAll has your guide to getting around Eastern Europe cheap, from the low-cost airlines you’ve likely never heard of (BlueAir, Air Balitc, and the unfortunately named “Wizz Air” — so many jokes, way too easy), to the low-down on train travel (much slower, much less of a deal than in Western Europe). Of course, the […]

This Is Why You Want To Go To Barcelona

Thursday, June 18, 2009

Very cool time lapse video of the city. Not recommended for those with motion sickness issues or for those who are inebriated while reading this site (and I know that probably excludes half of the readership). Beautifully shot epic short of a group exploring Barcelona via skateboard. You know it’s good if the filmmaker can […]

A Look Back At Midsummer 2008

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

I was doing some maintenance on the site yesterday when I came across my Scandinavia Blog from 2008 and realized that it was exactly one year ago to the day that I left for that trip. Isn’t it odd how something that happened a year ago can feel like it just happened as well feel […]

Madrid on Zero Euros A Day

So you have that summer trip to Spain all mapped out, and now all you have left to do is to wait around and watch every day as the U.S. Dollar plummets against the euro once again. Have no fear, there are plenty of ways to see everything you want and to get by on […]

Who Knew Corsica Was A Haven For Artists?

Tuesday, June 9, 2009

Spurred by cheap prices and an easy-going lifestyle, Corsica is emerging as the place in Europe for artists to set up shop. For visitors to this French island of 240,000, a scenic trip along the Strada degli Artigiani (the Artisans’ Route) will lead you though tiny villages and to the many shops where craftsmen are […]

TheExpeditioner Travel Guide To Dublin, Ireland (Part One)

Sunday, June 7, 2009

Dublin is one of the world’s most popular travel destinations, and a few days spent there shows why. In Part One of my travel guide to Dublin, I tour the city’s number one attraction, the Guinness Storehouse, go in search of the bar that serves the best pint, visit prestigious Trinity College, and head out […]
