What were our best travel moments of 2010. We had amazing adventures and it is tough to wrap up, but we did it. We had extraordinary moments in some of the simplest things.
2010 is drawing to a close and it is the perfect time to reflect on the events of the past year. We have had quite an amazing year when we stopped to think about. It is funny, when it is your own life, you don’t really realize just how incredible things are while they are happening, but in retrospect, life can be quite extraordinary. I won’t lie, things haven’t been all roses. We worry about where the money will come from, what the future will hold and if we will ever feel comfortable enough to actually stop counting every penny that we spend.
Canadian winter is a manifestation of nature’s harshness. In most parts of the country, people trudge through the snow for almost six months of the year, from November to April. Though some may prefer to hibernate, there are others who do not wish to fall prey to the boredom of cabin fever during the long winter season. The sense of fun coupled with the spirit of adventure of winter enthusiasts has given rise to diverse outdoor activities that are truly entertaining. Hence, to experience the excitement of Canadian winter, you need to participate in the following activities…
With the advent of digital cameras most people don’t really think of photographing in Black and White. Well I think people are missing out. If you look back over time you will see that some of the most striking and evoking photographs were taken in Black and White. It gives images a certain impact. Ansel Adams is a perfect example.
We wrap up this media week with songs that inspire travel. Like all of our lists this past week this was not easy to narrow down our choices to only six. There are many other songs out there that make us want to travel. Even as I write this introduction I am thinking of others but I won’t bore you with my thoughts, let us know if you have any songs that make you want to visit a country or city.
It’s media week at ThePlanetD and what is a week about travel in the media without travel movies. Dave and I worked in the film business for over a decade so we take our movie choices as seriously as our travel destinations.When we choose a movie that inspires travel, we don’t take it lightly. Picking a travel movie is important business. The type of movies you like says a lot about a person, so we are putting ourselves out there and tacking the hard hitting news of the travel world, Movies that Inspire Travel
We thought it would be fun for this Photo Story Friday to compare some of our photo’s to those of National Geographic. We tried to choose photo’s that were places we had been before and had a similar subject matter. In doing this it was a great learning experience.
We interrupt this media week to bring you the 7 Links Challenge brought to you by Problogger.

Here it comes, the post that almost every travel blog has tacked in the past. But it is media week after all and how can one talk about all the different mediums that inspire travel and not talk about our favorite travel books? The books that we have come up with in our list are just the books that we like. The books about travel, a specific country or a journey that have either inspired us to visit them, make a difference or try something new.
There have been some amazing sporting events this past month that we have been following and it inspired me to write about the awesome events around the world that inspire people to travel. It is no wonder that Sporting events are bringing the world together. As we root for our favorite teams, we are learning about other cultures and history’s of their land. We are overwhelmed with incredible scenery and fascinating locations. One of our favorite things about watching world sporting events are to learn about each place in between commercials or during a short break from the action.
