Every month we have been reflecting on the best things we read. In November, we were still in Hanoi for the first few days. We then flew to Bangkok for 2 weeks and after that had a week in Cambodia followed by a few days back in Bangkok.
- We were featured in an interview over at Budget Your Trip! Go check it out (and also, that website is one of my favorite travel resources).
- I may be trying out some of these ways to work online over at The Smart Girl’s Travel Guide.
- An interesting read about US customs problems from Runaway Juno.
- I’ve got my eye on this adventure tour in Slovenia thanks to A Dangerous Business.
- Too Many Adapters posted a nice guide to buying SIM cards in Southeast Asia (I’ve got a nice little collection myself).
- Over Yonderlust has a how-to guide for using Eurail passes.
- I’m even more excited about Genoa thanks to this post on Twenty-Something Travel!
- Nomadic Matt gave me even more cheap accommodation ideas.
- I really want to go to this adventure park in Spain (thanks, The Planet D!).
- Some cool food facts courtesy of Mental Floss.
Books – I only read three books this month! As predicted, the theft of my Nook slowed me down. However, I did get an iPad as a replacement so now I’m back on track!
- City of Bones and City of Ashes, books 1 and 2 of The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare – This is a good supernatural young adult series. It’s a bit different from many of the others out there as the main characters are demon hunters.
- Freedom by Jonathan Franzen – I loved this book! It’s about normal Americans and the anxieties they have regarding the freedoms in their lives. It’s absorbing and reflects a lot of societal issues. It’s also over 500 pages long, so I read it over a couple of weeks.
Links – Honestly I wasn’t keeping up with my RSS feed a whole lot this month, but here are a few links for you.
- George Mason University is planning on opening a campus in Incheon.
- Amazing miniature people doing things in normal sized world.
Books – Well, I didn’t read anything worth noting this month either. So I’m just not going to talk about it.
What were your best reads this month?
