This week, TripShake Magazine’s bloggers put the spotlight on Europe and encourages us ‘rougue’ travelers to try using a travel agent.

Janice Hough says that even though “domestic trips are often not what’s keeping [travel agents] in business,” they can can another set of eyes for all those confirmation numbers, and problems with flights and seat assignments are easily fixed.

Spotted by Locals points out the The Royal Danish Play House in Copenhagen, Denmark, which has recently been inaugerated.  Complete with cafe and theater, it seems like it’s the perfect answer for a summer evening.

Another summer hang out reported on by Spotted by Locals is Lake Zurich in Switzerland. Just some locally-loved spots to try.

TripShake Magazine – Weekly Round-up

Time to talk about this week’s interesting posts on TripShake Magazine.

Since tripwolf launched in Spanish this week, it’s only appropriate to discuss some Spain news – in the ‘Spotted by Locals’ category was the Gràcia Arts Project.  This is a small but vivacious art gallery located in the heart of Barcelona that is run by an association of artists. Seems like a great place to get to know locals, and step off the beaten path.

SoloRoadTrip convinces travelers to strike out alone and take a, well, Solo Road Trip.  It’s a chance to break free from the tweeting, blogging and texting of the world, and dare to have your own experience. Great advice…though you’re allowed to bring your cell for safety’s sake.

For those of you who have yet to read the blog post which won the tripwolf Bloggers’ Competition:

How Crashing a Wedding in Laos Saved My Life – Edward Wisdom

I woke up with our bug net canopy draped on my face. “We should use longer sticks next time…” I thought. The sand of the riverbank had molded almost comfortably to my back under our bamboo mats through the night. I smelled the fresh river water bubbling past the brush and palm trees along with the damp cotton of the bug net touching my nose. “We’re boat owners,” I chuckled to myself and smiled.
I hadn’t slept quite like a lamb. I slept more like someone with a wedgie on a cold night. Northern Laos’ temperatures dip way down in the PM. Through the night I had put on all my clothes: shorts and “Make Art Not War” T, two pants, two button downs and my fleece vest. Even wrapping myself in my trusty Japan Airlines blanket didn’t do the trick. But then again, why would it? They are made for Japanese infants.

Catching up with him in South Korea, we asked this travel lover that makes him wild – meet Eddie.

Where are you now, and how long have you been traveling?

“Clues to my whereabouts:

Be it a hike to some remote monastery or soccer on the beach, the women wear high heels on all occasions; I have grown to love fermented cabbage and rice wine; My toilet plugs into the wall and has twelve buttons.

Yes, I am in (South!) Korea. I’ll be here till February teaching English at a public high school. I left home in Boston the day after Christmas.”

How did you catch the travel bug?

“I didn’t know I was sick…”
