We’re back with another ‘G-Rewind’ for Thursday March 22, 2012. Fresh off a week that saw us rock London with our Future of Tourism event, we’re ready to spotlight what caught our eye over the last seven days in the world of social media and the ever so interesting travel blogosphere.
Our non-profit organization Planeterra just underwent a major site facelift this week. Visit their site to see how they are changing people’s lives each day. Check out their blog post Galapagos: More Than Just Nature, which includes a moving video that talks about their Oil Spill Prevention Program. Follow Planeterra on Twitter @PlaneterraCares.
Most traveler’s bucket list includes a trip to Paris. Easily one of the most beautiful and romantic cities on the planet, it is definitely worth checking out. One of our favorite bloggers Dave from Go Backpacking gives us his Top 10 Things to Do in Paris. Check out his tips and you’ll be sure to pick up tips on spots you may have not known about before heading off to the ‘City of Light.’ Follow Dave on Twitter @rtwdave.
Planning an adventure to Chile? One city we think you should definitely make time for is Valparaiso. Our friend Keith at Velvet Escape visited this colorful destination recently and snapped some equally vibrant pictures of the many murals you’ll encounter along the way. Follow Keith on Twitter @velvetescape.
