Personal trip reports
 
Check out Sheila's trip reports on http://www.travelswithsheila.com/ . As you can see it looks a lot like our homepage as there is lots of personal trip reports containing photos, text and videos. Check it out :-)
Sitestory.dk Check out the travelogues on sitestory.dk :-) Here you will find pictures and trip reports from various European destinations. I guess I like the site as the trip reports reminds of the trip reports that I make for my own homepage :-)
BombasticLife.com Check out BombasticLife.com for unbiased reviews of the some of the most BOMBASTIC luxury and 5 star hotels and restaurants on earth.
Different travel forums
 

TripAdvisor is a great place if you want to read epinions about different hotels. They also have a great forum where you can post questions.

Got any questions about Italy? Slowtravel Talk is a good place to start :-)

www.fodors.com is another nice place if you want to post some questions and get some good answers. Go to the Talk section :-)

www.frommers.com has a community but the message boards are not the best in the world. But it seems like there is a lot of visitors.

AardvarkTravel.net has a good forum.

The BootsnAll community is pretty good forum.

 

Lonely Planet Thorn Tree Travel Forum. I only found this place recently but it is a great place to start when you want to plan a vacation.

 

TravBuddy has some cool functionality. You can register where you are going on your next vacation and then you can get an overview of other members that are going there. Here is my profile on TravBuddy.

Travelers to Go!

Travelers to Go! is another good and active travel forum where you can post questions and get good answers.

 

GLOBOsapiens is another place where you can post trip reports, tips, pictures and there is also a forum if you have questions...or answers :-)

Virtual Tourist  is another online travel community where you can share your travel pictures, stories and so on. I think that is a pretty nice site and I  have posted some of my pictures and stories there: Gard's Homepage

IgoUgo is another online travel community where you can share your travel pictures, stories and so on. My wife Nikki has posted some information here under the name Elginah. Feel free to check out her page here: Nikki's page

 

Misc travel links

 

Epinions.com is the place if you want to speak your mind about something. I use it to rate hotels and destinations. You will find my page on http://www.epinions.com/user-gard.

 

Ciao is a place like Epinions (see above). It is a place to speak your mind about destinations, hotels, airlines etc. My page can be found on this link: http://www.ciao.co.uk/account.php/MemberId/5353000.

What will the weather be like in Rome in July? Will there rain a lot when I got to Thailand in September? Check out www.weatherbase.com to find all sorts of weather stats.

The best hostel in Singapore? Well, I haven't been there but it was started recetly by my friends Ping and Hai? From the looks of it people who stay there are having a great time. And their page is more about just booking a bed for a night or two. On the page you will find lots and lots of information about Singapore, what to see, what to do, what to eat and so on. So check out their page on http://www.the-inncrowd.com/

Natural Born Hikers is the place to go if you want to get information about hiking in the USA. These guys have tried some spectacular trails :-)

Do you love meeting people from other cultures? Do you love traveling? Do you love helping other people? Then this is the place for you to be! Sign up at The Hospitality Club and get help from other travellers...and help others that are coming to your neighbourhood.
CouchSurfing is based on the same idea as Hospitality Club above. Here you can ask people if you can "loan" their couch for a day or two when you are passing through town. I haven't used it myself but my brother used it when he went to New Orleans a couple of years back
