The Second Anywhere, Everywhere Travel Carnival

Before I started blogging, I had never heard of a blog carnival. And now here I am, already hosting the second edition of the Anywhere, Everywhere Travel Carnival. Once again, there is no funnel cake, but there are plenty of good reads and travel eye candy. I received lots of submissions; below are my favorite ones.

Shannon OD presents Hiking Pushkar, India, with Monkeys and a Sunset Temple posted at a little adrift: a rtw travelogue. After reading this, I was grateful that monkeys in Costa Rica were much nicer than the ones Shannon encountered in India!

Wandering Justin presents Rapelling into the Dark — The Glow Worm Caves of Waitomo posted at Wandering This is a great description of a caving tour in New Zealand.

Tony Alexander presents The Quiet Rural Life posted at The Soul of Japan. Tony’s photos show a side of Japan most visitors never see.

Byteful Travel presents How Standby Tickets Work, Why You Should Know posted at Byteful Travel. I’ve never bought a standby ticket, but perhaps I should consider it to save money.

Marina K. Villatoro presents I Love a Good Beach Surprise posted at The Travel Expert(a). Her piece is about how much she liked Punta Leona, Costa Rica, which is not too far from Jaco, where I spent a night in March.

Dave and Deb presents How to Live your Life to Travel the World posted at Canada’s Adventure Couple. Here, they explain how its possible for them to travel for extended periods of time.

Michael Gvirtzman presents Weekend in Galilee posted at Mind Listings. This is great if you want to go off the beaten path in Israel.

Steven presents Vacationing for Less posted at Hundred Goals. Here he reveals how he saved a lot of money on his trip to Aruba.

Silicon Valley Blogger presents Fun Day Trip With Kids, Thomas The Tank Engine Style posted at The Digerati Life. This is a recount of a special event that takes place a few times each summer at the Roaring Camp Railroads in Felton, Ca.

Mark Koester presents Hearing the (Un)Expected and Finding the (Un)Mistakable: Est-ce que tu m’entends? posted at The Mystic Atheist. This is an interesting piece about the different languages you hear while traveling.

    Thanks for including a post from in your carnival. Yes I definitely recommend people explore the option of a stand-by plane ticket. :)
    Great to see another travel blog carnival. For a while it seemed like they were growing thin. Keep up the great work!
