The 5th Edition of the Anywhere, Everywhere Travel Carnival

Welcome to the fifth edition of the Anywhere, Everywhere Travel Blog Carnival. Every other Monday, I choose my favorite blog submissions and post them here. You won’t find any funnel cake or ferris wheels at this carnival, but you will find plenty of entertaining posts to enjoy.

Alan presents Chernobyl Exposed: A Tour of the World’s Most Infamous Radioactive Disaster Zone posted at The 9 to 5 Alternative. I can’t say this tour would be high on my to-do list, but I very much enjoyed reading about this unusual experience.

Mark presents Chianti Classico (Tuscany, Italy) posted at Travel Wonders of the World. It’s a great guide — with gorgeous photos — to the Chianti region of Italy.

Velvet Escape presents Ten tips for planning a RTW trip posted at Velvet Escape’s Blog. This is a very useful guide for anyone who is lucky enough to be planning a round-the-world trip — or if just wish you were!

Sherry Ott presents Turning on the Faucet: Vietnam’s Rainy Season posted at Ottsworld. I often wonder how rainy a “rainy season” really is. Sherry, who is spending the year in Vietnam, describes just how wet it truly is in this enjoyable read.

Tamara presents Dipping In: The Best Hotel Pools in Europe posted at Smith Travel Blog. Great photos — I found myself wanting to dive into each and every one of these gorgeous pools.

Ren Robles presents Day Five: Beauty and Madness (Phnom Penh, Cambodia) posted at So Not Lost!. The latest post of a series that Ren is working on about his three-week trip around Southeast Asia, this one focuses on contrasts he saw in Phnom Penh.

Lisa Woodill presents Hit by a Motorcycle, Kicked by a Horse, Attacked by a Monkey posted at My Little Travel Bug. This piece about Siem Reap, Cambodia, recalls a day of sight-seeing that more like slapstick comedy.

Jeffery Patch presents Top 10 Man-Made Wonders of the World – a Photo Essay posted at Have Pack, Will Travel. These pictures are breathtaking!

Kara Williams (aka MountainMama) presents Top Attractions in Las Vegas for School-Age Kids posted at Traveling Mamas. There’s a lot more for kids to do in Vegas than just sitting by the pool.

The Smarter Wallet presents How To Keep Your Money Safe and Secure While You Travel posted at The Smarter Wallet. While money issues aren’t the most fun thing to think about while you’re planning a trip, it’s even less fun to encounter money problems on the road.

Gregory E. Rouse presents Arrow Lake / Glacier National Park posted at Wilderness-Trails Blog. Here he provides a good description with practical info on one of the world’s most beautiful areas.

Amy presents Outdoor Adventures Around Atlanta posted at The Q Family Adventures Travel Blog. If you’ll be in Atlanta this summer, be sure to check out some of these top-notch suggestions.

Sonia presents Kicking Off Summer With The Big O posted at Pulpology. Here, she describes her experience a few weeks ago at the annual Osyrusfest in Coatesville, PA. This music festival sounds like one to put on your calendar for next year.

Marina K. Villatoro presents The Tarcoles River Crocodiles posted at The Travel Expert(a). When I was in Costa Rica, I saw the giant crocs that Martina describes, but I didn’t get to see anyone feed them like she did.

Collin Patsy presents Day Trips – Denver,Colorado posted at Travel Ideas and Tips. This is helpful for those who find themselves with a free day in Denver and want to explore what Colorado has to offer.

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 June 28th. The next edition will be posted on Monday, June 29th.

    A gorgeous list of travel goodness. Funnel cake and sodas would be more fun, but these do just fine. :-)
