From other Travel Blogs...

Some of the interesting articles I read this week:

Going to Rome? Viator shares some great day trips you might want to consider. Or, if you aren't going to Rome, but you'll be in New York City, check out their article on hiring a private tour guide/personal photographer to help you get oriented to the city. I love this idea. Most of my travel pictures are of other people, and if someone offers to take a picture of me with the others, the results are usually less than satisfactory (blurry, odd composition, etc.) and I think it would be great to get some fun shots that look good.

Neil Woodburn from Gadling is writing a 17 part series on visiting Alaska without the cruise ship. I'm saving his articles in my Alaska planning file.

I've mentioned that Machu Picchu is at the top of my list of travel dreams, so I was intrigued by an article in the New York Times about The Other Machu Picchu, Choquequirao.

National Parks Traveler has another Off The Well-Worn Path report, this time on Great Basin National Park.

And last, but never least, Our Man in Granada made me laugh with The top 10 yings and yangs of living overseas.
