There’s nothing really great about summer coming to a close for many. For me, however, this is the time of year I look forward to. It’s time to pack my bags and hit the road! Come Thursday, I’ll be on a plane to California to spend nearly the whole month road tripping and writing. While I look forward to this time, though, there are other things I have to consider. For instance….

  • Before you hit the road, you have to break it to your loved ones, which is never (ever) easy. Here are a few tips on telling friends and family of your travels. [via BootsNAll]
  • Traveling abroad inevitably means arranging for your travel visas, which my cousin quickly realized can be quite a headache. Check out Part 1 and Part 2 of his trip to D.C. to acquire visas.
  • This is the best time of the year to see Europe, and if you’re there, you should check out these scenic mountain railways. [via OpenTravel]
  • The keyword this summer has been green tourism, and this article muses on all the new hype on this mode of travel. [via GoGreenTravelGreen]

‘Til tomorrow, have a great evening!
