Travel + Inspirational Link Round-Up, September Edition

Our second full month in Vancouver has come and is about to go, taking with it memories of homemade meals (salmon spread on French baguettes, Greek gyros in homemade tortillas, Thai stir fry, my first attempt at biryani), writing days in the big leather chair by the window, trip planning for our winter in Italy, the launch of my Denver guide, forest hikes, my 32nd birthday with its lengthy head massages and dinner on the town, and plenty of the rainy days that Vancouver is known for, as we head into autumn.

What have you been up to this September?

Now, to this month’s interesting links:

:: First up: More proof of the wildly varying incomes and lifestyles of digital nomads.

:: For the food tour crowd: The best food tour I’ve been on in North America, hands down.

:: Now, some Canadian Instagrammers I love: Lizzy Gadd, Claudia Laroye, and Brice Ferre.

:: Speaking of photos, this is stunning: The Atlas of Beauty.

:: Even though I don’t have or want my own apartment, I love looking at other people’s ingenious designs.

:: Unrelated: Czech Republic anyone?

:: How to Survive Being an Airbnb Host.

:: Now, something important: My Four Months as a Private Prison Guard.

:: And, that made me cry.

:: Finally, Dudes Greeting Dudes: A snarky way to shine a light on street harassment.

On the blog, in case you missed them:

:: Going to Phoenix or Tucson? I Made Something for You.

:: Ask a Local: What Should I Do/See/Eat in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia?

:: Let’s Talk About Money, Honey

Today’s lovely little link round-up is sponsored by Omio!

That’s right: I’ve started (occasionally) to work with brands that feel relevant and interesting to my audience. Check out Omio travel planning app (which sounds really interesting and I’ll be checking out myself) below!

goeuro-logo The Omio app is Europe’s most comprehensive multi-mode travel search engine. Unlike most travel websites that focus on flights and city to city connections, Omio offers bus, train, and air options to get from A to B all on one page. No matter if you’re going between major cities or smaller villages, this app makes travel around Europe easy.
