Odds + (Week) Ends: A Weekly Travel Round-up | Vol. 1

Odds + (Week) Ends: A Weekly Travel Round Up, Vol. 1 | CosmosMariners.com

After taking a much needed blogging break this summer, I'm back at it. As I get back into blogging, I've decided to launch a new series. Every Monday, I'll share a handful of links from my favorite travel sites so you read what's new, exciting, and interesting. There's just so much great travel content out there, and I'm hoping that you'll find a few new favorite bloggers along the way as well!

As a diehard Anglophile, I love learning about the people, places, architecture, literature, and history that make up the UK. I came across this page on Thatched Houses in England and was fascinated to learn more about this iconic structure. It's interested to think that thatched roofs were once built out of necessity--the materials were easy to find and cheap--while now, building a house with thatch is actually more expensive than using modern materials!

One of my travel bucket list items is going to a few of the places that my parents visited on their early '80s European trip. While I haven't gotten to do that yet, the author at Past Present Project, Christian Carollo has--and the results are so awesome. He takes his grandparents' old travel photographs, and then recreates them at the 21st century version of their sites. This site will make you want to start digging through your own family's snapshots.

Although I don't get to go very often, I love scuba diving and snorkeling. One thing I dont' love about either of those is the fact that my underwater pictures always turn out looking awful. Amazing photographer and all-around-awesome travel blogger Esther of Local Adventurer has an easy-to-follow Underwater Photography Guide so that I might one day get a non-blurry picture of that gorgeous fish.
