The travel season is almost over, but the holiday season will be here soon. To beat the summertime blues, begin making your travel arrangements now. Schedule your Christmas vacation, book your flight, practice your "take this job and shove it" speech, plan your walkout.
Also, check out this recently posted link here for some interesting travel websites. One will help you predict you airfare, another will help you with pet accommodations and others will help you plan the right seat or wi-fi hotel.
I especially like using Google Earth to revisit places I've been, i.e. Cooper's Landing, Alaska. If you zoom in all the way and rotate around, you feel like Julie Andrews in the Austrian Alps, sort of.
