Where in the World? Ancient Stone Bridge

Update: The winner is David…who guessed, Old Bridge, Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Mostar was named after the “bridge keepers” who guarded the Stari Bridge (old bridge), which was rebuilt in 2004 after being destroyed in the conflict. David hasn’t won in a while here but he is back and gets the prize this week. Dave doesn’t have a blog so while I wait for Dave’s choice of links I’m including an APPEAL to Help Japan: My Experience During the Japan Earthquake. Welcome to the weekly Where in the World?

Find Love, Good Health, Wealth and High Test Scores in Japan

In the last article we explored the Japanese trend of visiting “Power Spots,” areas where you can gather invisible energy. Whether you believe in Power Spots or not the act of visiting specific places to gain a certain type of benefit is a long held practice in Japan. Temples, shrines and hot springs are the most commonly visited. Natural areas are usually associated with one of them and are where visitors focus their prayers when venturing out into rural Japan. Much of what people ask for are physical rewards. While I’m not sure praying for wealth is the best use of your time, there are thousands of places all over Japan that cater to physical and spiritual improvements. If you are heading to Japan and you have issues with health, love, and money, need to pass an exam, could use a bit of healing, or just want to get rid Read full article…

Power Spots: Japanese Spiritual and Travel Craze

Gain Energy, Luck and Happiness through Travel to Power Spots Want to get married, become rich, get rid of a little evil, or do away with that ugly wart? It’s as simple as visiting a Power Spot. One the biggest trends in Japan last year was the rise of Power Spots, and any type of travel associated with them. Power Spots are supposedly any place where you can receive invisible energy that can help you achieve all your life’s dreams, whether they be material or spiritual. This is of course not a new concept in Japan, as the Japanese have ascribed specific powers to temples and shrines for thousands of years. Shinto beliefs also stress a spiritual aspect to nature,  inhabited by millions of gods. What is new is the packaging of all such Power Spots into one large mixture of your favorite spiritual energy dogmas. A little Feng Shui Read full article…

Where in the World? Another World?

Update: The winner is Rebecca…who guessed, Coober Pedy, South Australia! Thanks again to Laurence and his universe. Here’s what he had to say: “It is an awesome place, somewhat reminiscent of Mos Eisley, only without so much scum and villainy, plus nearly everyone lives underground to escape the heat. The surrounding landscape and attractions are also surreal, with names such as the Moon Plain and The Painted Desert – it’s not hard to see why it was chosen as the set for Pitch Black, which is set on an alien planet.” Rebecca gets the prize this week. So check out Cadence: Planning and Design, it’s not travel blog but they can help you design a peaceful living environment. Sounds nice to me Welcome to the weekly Where in the World?

5 Unique Things to Do in Boston

Boston is not only a visually stunning city, it is also home to the Red Socks, Beer and Lobster! The city of Boston is one of my “second” homes. From historical battle fields, to Irish pubs, a mix of colonial and modern architecture, the fusion of blue collar values and lofty academics leaves me feeling relaxed and welcomed. The city is smaller than most capital cities and boasts a host of unique neighborhoods. It’s more intimate than it’s rival New York, and  it’s easy to escape for those dreaming of New England sea coast villages or the mountain wilderness of New Hampshire and Vermont. Boston is where my mother’s family is from, where I went to school, it’s where all of my best friends live, it’s my first stop during any trip home, and it’s one of those places you could spend years exploring and never really figure it all Read full article…

Where in the World? Golden Bridge

Update: The winner is Jerick…who guessed, Si-o-Seh Bridge in Esfahan, Iran! Thanks again to Glenn and his great travel blog. Here’s what he had to say: “This is the Si-o-Seh Bridge (or Bridge of 33 Arches). Built some 400 years ago, it is one of the most romantic bridges of the world. Iranians love to stroll along the bridge and linger beneath the arches to sing, recite poetry, or watch the river flow by.“ Jerick gets the prize this week.

Blog Party!

We haven’t had a Blog Party (think Block Party without the pony and clowns) here on Todd’s Wanderings for a while so its time to get to know each other better. There is beer further down, keep reading…honest… One of the greatest things about having a blog is being able to connect with so many people around the world. I want to extend the opportunity to you. So, what is a Blog Party? That’s a great question! Basically it’s a chance to tell us who you are, what you do, and where we can find you. It’s a way for us to meet each other, discover areas where we connect, learn new perspectives on life, travel, doing good, or whatever. What you need to do. Wait! Don’t go, I promise, no heavy lifting. Just introduce yourself with your name, what you like to do in life (ie how you travel, what Read full article…

Explore the World Your Way: TWs Feedback Survey and VIDEO

Hi readers, this is a different type of post.

I want to know what you think! I want to know what you most enjoy about Todd’s Wanderings and what you want more of. I’m here to indulge your whims (not really), answer your questions (if I can), and leave you feeling refreshed and energetic after exploring the world. In short, I want to you to take my Todd’s Wanderings Survey to Beat all Polls (click the link or see below). Sounds exciting and contentious, doesn’t it! Help Make Todd’s Wanderings (more?) Awesome On a more serious note, this is very important. With your help I’m planning to change Todd’s Wanderings into a Purple Cow. I want to Read full article…

Why I Recommend World Nomads Travel Insurance

Since I married I have become a lot more responsible, and travel insurance has become a priority. I travel  (a lot) and protecting my trips, my family, and my bank account are now a priority. It’s no secret I have put myself in some…um…compromising situations. From getting hit by a hurricane while out to sea off the Vietnamese cost, stuck in the middle of a Thailand lake in a metal open air boat during a thunder and lightening storm,  getting hit by a car in Japan (OK and Laos), to getting $500 stolen from my room in Sri Lanka. When you step out of your house Sh$# can happen and that’s why I recommend World Nomads Travel Insurance.
