The Third Anywhere, Everywhere Travel Carnival

Step right up, ladies and gentlemen. Step right up! It’s the third edition of the Anywhere, Everywhere Travel Blog Carnival. Every other Monday, I choose my favorite blog submissions and post them here. You’ll notice that this week a lot of them are related to spending time outdoors — I am more than ready for some summer weather.

Jack Norell presents Parks in Berlin posted at Eyeflare. Popular with both tourists and residents, these parks range from tiny green oases around fountain on street corners to massive leisure parks like Grunewald, which really is a sizable forest on the southwest edge of the city.

Elizabeth Hargrave presents Car-free DC: Rock Creek Park posted at The Natural Capital. After spending hours indoors at the Smithsonian museums, take some time to explore Washington’s natural side by going for a hike in Rock Creek.

Andy presents Movies That Make You Want To Travel posted at The Brooklyn Nomad. I have my own travel movie list, but I really liked Andy’s choices so be sure to check his out. I can’t believe I still haven’t seen In Bruges yet.

Julie Gilley presents 10 Things That Make Me Happy in Rome posted at Travel with Julie. If watching (or reading) Angels and Demons makes you want to go to Rome, here are some more suggestions of what to do when you get there.

DWSUWF presents Ryokan Momijiya Bekkan Kawa No Iori – Part Deux posted at MW Mobile Blog. These pictures will give you a good idea of what it’s like to stay at a ryokan, a small Japanese inn that takes pride in following traditions.

Marina K. Villatoro presents Sports Fishing in Puerto Jimenez, Costa Rica posted at The Travel Expert(a). If you’ve ever considered booking one of those day-long fishing excursions, this story will make you wish you had.

Mark Sukhija presents Festivals in Switzerland posted at Mark’s Travel Notes. Here’s a great list of Swiss events — try to make it to at least one if you’re in Western Europe.

Jessica Reeder presents Things I Learned: Get Good Boots posted at Uprooted. You sure need the right shoes if you’re hiking in Colorado.

Jennine presents You Never Know What You’ll See posted at Travelaholic Anonymous. Jennine’s hike in Ireland takes a surprising twist.

Thanks so much to everyone who participated! Would you like to see your travel-related blog post in the next edition of’s Anywhere, Everywhere Travel Carnival? If so, submit your post here by May 31st. The next edition will be posted on Monday, June 1st.

    Hi Liz, I love your Blog Carnival idea. Here is my submission. I’m doing a series on great day trips from Paris. Here’s one of them….Monet’s Home and fabulous gardens at Giverny.
