You can always ask a travel related question. Sometimes you get some answers, sometimes you don’t.

I’m interested in your vacation experiences, but I don’t want your hotel reviews and stuff like that. Plenty of other websites will take those off your hands. You could detail a vacation like Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, which, after 6 years, is still one of the best submissions I’ve received.

It doesn’t have to be quite so long, of course. This quickie from March, 2011 gave us a look at traveling in Japan when the big earthquake hit.

Maybe you have a reaction to one of my blog posts that’s too long to be a comment. For example, this article on visiting college campuses was a fine submission and followed up on one of my older blog entries.

I also like hearing about culture shock.

A travel plan that you’ve tried out or are thinking about trying out would be fun for all of us to read. Here’s one example of the format I like in a London and Amsterdam travel plan (notice the day 1, day 2, day 3 organization). You could also do specific dates like this one for Oregon.

And then I don’t get many pictures submitted, but I like pictures. Please make sure they are not too huge (not too many megabytes or gigabytes or whatever – in Photoshop you would ‘save for web’).
