Start your tour of the Wide Wired World right here.

We’ll point you to the best, the brightest, the coolest, the most thoughtful websites for travelers. Each site has been visited, poked around in and evaluated by a Panel of Experts (consisting in its entirety of well, us). If you have or know of a travel-related website you’d like us to consider, send us the URL and a brief, breathless description. The decision of the judges (um, us) is final...and very subjective. Criteria? We look for a mix of valuable, usable, interesting content; a sense of style; good writing and design; a passion for travel and the world. And maybe just a pinch of “wow.” We've grouped them in categories for your convenience; dual-topic sites are listed twice, in each relevant category.

So, fasten your seat belt, plug your nose and swallow hard, and prepare for take-off. And please do take a moment now to confirm your return trip by bookmarking us. If you'd like to suggest an exceptional "site trip" for our consideration, let us know about it.

Come along with us, the Wide Wired World awaits.
