Weekly Round-Up March 7

This week's round-up features a lot of tips and advice:

Why travel shouldn't scare you: Travel guru Chris Elliot's 5 tips for avoiding a near-miss offers some great advice. I particularly like the point about not letting near-misses stop you from traveling. (And yes, technically a "near-miss" means a collision, but that's not the point).

Eating right on the road: More budget travel advice from Nora Dunn: The Culinary Essentials Every Budget Traveler Should Know. Also good advice for starving students!

Your weekly dose of health advice: Veteran flight attendant James Wysong's Is there a doctor on board? offers advice for travellers about medical emergencies -- both what to do to prevent one and what to do if one is happening. (Imagine dying because you didn't want to make a scene...)

Something to think about: Lola Akinmade's The 50 Most Inspiring Travel Quotes of All Time. I think my personal favourite is from Aldous Huxley: “To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.”

Tips for budding videographers: Stephanie Bryant's 4 Easy Tips for Shooting Better Travel Videos. Photographers can also benefit from this advice too.

Planning a trip around the world? Here's a good place to start: Amanda Kendle's How to Plan a Round-the-World Travel Route that Makes Sense.

That's all for this week. Read an interesting article that I missed? Post a comment!
