Rants Websites

Website and Blog Reveiw 12/15/08

http://www.flickr.com/photos/declanjewell/517966692/I have been finding a lot of cool new websites and wanted to take a few minutes to share them with anybody who reads this:

*First, in the world of travel, a very informative site I saw was http://www.how-to-travel-the-world.com/ and contained lots of great info as well as very photos!

*My friend Greg, travel writer extraordinaire, had a scary experience in Portland.  Apparently he was first on scene of a car versus pedestrian accident and started thinking about advice for travelers put in these scary instances.  Read about it over at http://www.vagabondinglife.com/an-unusual-portland-welcome/ 

*World Nomads, the Australian company best known for travel insurance, has a very interesting blog going over at their website.  The blog, World Nomad’s Travel Safety Hub, discusses everything from illness and injury to scams and other things that can ruin a trip.  Very cool blog and worth a look!

*Lastly, I have been pouring over the new study about the Malaria Vaccine trials.  I am still in the process of writing up my review but it is very interesting stuff!

*I am also still working far to much on an upcoming article looking at rock climbing related injuries to fingers.  Specifically, does using tape on the fingers prevent injury?  Coming soon, I hope!
