Odds + (Week) Ends: A Weekly Travel Round-up | Vol. 9

Odds + (Week) Ends: A Weekly Travel Round-up, Vol. 9 | CosmosMariners.com


It's been a few weeks since the last travel round-up since I've had so much going on in my editorial calendar (#bloggingproblems), but I'm back today with the newest volume of Odds + (Week) Ends!

On my end, this weekend has been a wonderful blur of museums, mountains, and delicious food. I've been exploring Greenville, South Carolina, in my recent partnership with the Greenville CVB. I've got some awesome content coming up from that trip that you should look for in the coming weeks. (For a sneak peak, you can check out my Instagram feed!)


So, what's been on my radar this week? Read on!

Are you a tourist or a traveler? The labels have been bandied about forever, but this post by Girl Unspotted goes a little bit deeper in the dueling terms. Thankfully, she does it in an honest but non-pretentious manner, which allows readers to get to the heart of the matter quickly. Which do you think you are? Do you think there's really a difference in the terms?

The spot that I selected as my favorite natural pool!
While swimming pools are quite nice, nothing really compares to splashing around in a lagoon or underneath a waterfall. Drifter Planet collected 50 travel bloggers' favorite natural pools from around the world. See which body of water that I submitted (I'm entry #41!).
